This is an extract from a real memo from a real office.
* In view of the high cost of electricity and to cut down on wastage, management has decided that only the administration department can authorise maintenance to switch on the aircon after office hours and during weekends. So please give advance notice.
* Admin would be holding 2 pieces of fan for staff to use if fan is sufficient as ours is central aircon.
* Aircon would be charged at $22 per hour per aircon.
Yes, this office is from Singapore, and not, as you might have guessed, Inner Mongolia.
