A new edict was passed down from the principal. We are no longer allowed to have anything on any surface in the staffroom.
Desks shall have a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse. Nothing else.
The large table (used for meetings and as a general catchall) must not have anything on it. Ever.
No tissue boxes. No rolls of TP.
If we have coffee, the coffee maker must be used, the coffee must be consumed, and the coffee maker promptly put away.
The same goes for snacks.
Even the garbage cans have been tucked away.
Right now, it’s pretty funny. Nobody knows where anything is so everyone rushes around before class opening cupboards and drawers looking for their belongings.
I can see it getting really old, really fast. Good thing the principal is retiring in August. 😀
