Subject: RE: BS: Help! My Job is a Dilbert Cartoon!
Many years ago, I worked in the IT department in an Irish Government agency. They were into "efficiency savings", and one of the things they did was to recycle used envelopes for internal mail.

One day, my manager (good guy and occasional contributor to this forum) got one such envelope. It had been re-closed with a couple of staples, one of which gave him a small cut when he opened the envelope. He read the memo inside, which was a note from Personnel advising staff that it was safer to re-close envelopes with sticky tape rather than staples.
