Great parking.

This happened on Monday, but it's just too good to stop giving it oxygen, so sorry if this is old news.

Some people, when they have issues with stuff like workplace bullying and incompetent management, would make a complaint to human resources.

And then, if issues aren't resolved they would then go further up the food chain.

And then, if that doesn't work, and you're 47 year old David Theobald - you crash your car into the building where you work.

That would be the brand new building where you work.
That is owned by the outfit that you have worked for, for the last twenty-five years.

Which is the Tax Department.

And before you do it, you check with the cleaners to make sure you're not going to hurt anyone.

And you make sure you've got a friend handy to take a snap of your hard work.
And just when you thought this story couldn't get any better - there is the response Sir Theobald (I've just given him a knighthood as this is my blog and I can do what I want) got from his employers.
The head of Human Resources sent him a letter, 'Information has come to my attention which indicates that you may have intentionally driven a car through Inland Revenue's Christchurch building...I am am concerned that your conduct may be inconsistent with the code of conduct.'
Mental note to self: don't piss off the tax department. They're nasty.

In all fairness, the Tax Department, any tax department, doesn't have anyone higher up on the food chain. They're all bottom-feeders.

I imagine that Sir Dave, having worked for them, already knew that.

I think you're right Confuscius Sparrow -I am picking he did know this.

I'd love to know what's in their code of conduct, if they're not sure that driving a car through the front of the building is against it!

Heh. Maybe they need to ammend their parking code of conduct in order to accommodate this behaviour.
