I got the following email about a new cost cutting measure here at work:
An item from the Suggestion Box said we should stop using university funds to purchase facial tissues. As a result, ITS will no longer be supplying Kleenex’s for individual offices/desks. Kleenex will still be provided in common areas like the mail room and the conference rooms. We understand this is an inconvenience but it is part of measure campus wide to cost-cut in supply purchasing. Please bring a box of tissues from home for use in your office/desk.
So that’s fancy. But at least I still have a job.
