Dear Colleagues Who Make Copies,

If the machine jams while making your copies, FIX THE JAM. Do not skulk out of the room leaving the mess for another person to sort out. If you're not sure what to do, ask for help! FIX THE JAM.

Thank you!


Dear All the Ladies Who Use the Main Bathroom,

Please put the paper towels IN the trashcan. If they don't quite make it and fall on the floor, pick them up and put them IN the trashcan. You will not die of diptheria or any other germy disease! Instead, you will help keep the bathroom a neat and tidy place!

Thank you!


Dear Students In Other Classes Who Use My Room,

Quit leaving your books in my desks. You actually want them, I don't want to store them like a lost and found. See how that works? Win-win situation. Keep your stuff with you!

Thank you!

Monday? Jammed copy machines. Paper towels on floor. Books in desks.

Even if they read this blog, these are obvious enough that they already choose to ignore them.

Now, if you posted your letters...

That would do almost as little good.

But if you locked up the books, and only opened the cabinet once a week?

And if you pulled the jammed copies out, decided who they belonged to, and discussed...?

Still hopeless.

The paper towels are on the floor because your colleagues know that there are other DISGUSTING colleagues that don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. So they open the door with the paper towel, and then chuck it on the floor. Tell your custodian to put a garbage pail outside of the bathroom- guaranteed the problem stops.

And don't forget:

If you tinkle, please don't sprinkle!

You ought to send out some anonymous e-mails and see what happens!
