Talkie was given her written warning on Thursday, which not unexpectedly led to her shedding many tears in the teachers’ room and quite lengthy talks on her part.
The common consensus is that the bosses must have been out to get her. A usual written warning is for one specific incident – this one was not. It was for everything that they could think of that Talkie has done, or is thought to have done.
The most absurd thing that they included was the fact that she sometimes bypasses the office when coming into work and uses the back door to the teachers’ room. She does this because our office can be quite draughty at times and the secretaries complain about that, so she made a conscious decision to avoid that situation and the whinging involved with it. The warning said that could be perceived as being insulting to the office because of the fact that she’s avoiding it, hence being unfriendly to colleagues!
I am surprised that they didn’t write her up for breathing.
