This is a question Jobsworths

All over the world there are little people following the rules and being arsey because, let's face it, it's fun.

Tell us about your experiences with petty jobsworths, or, if you are a petty jobsworth, tell us how much you get off on it.

I HATE rule stickers
you know, the bastard parking ticket guys who clip you for being ONE MINUTE over time etc. Anyway unfortunately, now I AM one, and I have to say...it feels pretty damn good.

I work for a newspaper and one of my less thrilling daily duties is to put together what is known as the "Community Noticeboard" which is sort of like a classifieds section, but it's free for charities, community groups and so on.

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than receiving a notice 5 minutes after deadline and throwing it in the bin, even though I could probably go out of my way and process it.

Nothing is more pleasurable, except perhaps for telling some old bint who's called to complain about her notice not appearing in the paper that the reason why it didn't appear was that it was submitted after deadline.

Sorry, nothing I can do about that, love.

He he he.
