Seriously, DWS? Seriously?

I enjoy my job. I get to IM Casey, email Smithfieldman, help people in need, and come into contact with people whose lives are much more difficult than my own. Though Casey and I mention ETD--estimated departure time--more often than two people should, I generally leave my job feeling like I have made the world a bit better. I can look in the many mirrors that I surround myself with and say "Politicchic6, you have done it again, you minx (I only add that last part when I am feeling particularly saucy)". Then there are the days like today. Days when I stroll in just a little late to see several emails and voice mails and I try to
imagine what my doppelganger must be up to. I am sure he/she is jet setting around, perhaps has landed in Scotland for a meeting with Sir David Davidson about Tory reform, then would be off to speak at a convention in Ghana about children's literacy levels and corporate funding for private education. I am; however, receiving emails like these. This is an ACTUAL email sent on the State email system. I have altered nothing. I only wish that I had.


Ok everyone here is another one of my inspirational emails....
You know the government is saving energy costs with the new 4 -10 hours days...
There are a few things that they should not be saving on for the well being of Us, the Employees... That is right water and toiletries. As we are here for longer hours each day it is still very important to our system to have proper hydration and excretion. Especially in these stressful times we do not need to have physical in-balances. FACT: Approximately 60% of non-illness headaches are related to the body's hydration. Make sure that you are drinking water (that is what the drinking fountains are for) throughout the day.
And any doctor will tell you Don't hold it. And 10 hours is just too long to hold it! :)
There is a lot of stress that is out of our control, but these are things that can greatly increase our ability to deal with the uncontrollable stressors...

Well you probably won't read this until you have visited the water cooler, gone to the WC (yes the WC), ran back to the water cooler and then checked the kitchen to see if there was any water to drink.
Do you need me to send you some of Ketchikan's water?

This email is right. Make sure you excrete every couple hours. Urinate now, or forever hold your pee, that's what I always say.

saucy?....
seriously.
You are ridiculous, make sure you think that over while hydrating and urinating.

Are you kidding... Man, I'm glad to see the government has a sense of humor, I'm used to being told to fear them... knowing this changes my whole out look on taxes, auditing, and practical jokes in general... thank you for setting the record straight... :)
