Work email etiquette

I've just had a complaint about a memeber of my staff and an email they sent out.

He wrote

Dude's and Duddette's overtime cut off date ........

Someone in this office has complained about being a Duddette.

FFS what's the fooking problem with that, if you aint got any work to do and all you have to do is complain about something like that then come and see me and I'll sort you something out to do.

Public sector?
Local authority?

One of my staff sent out that there'd be hell on.


Apostrophes-a-Go-Go.

He's the victim of a typo:

Dudette - female dude, no problem.
Duddette - female dud, insulting.

Someone in his 50's trying to get down with the funky kids.

I've had a word with him telling him not to use language like that but come on now is there any real reason to complain about something as petty as that. Some people have too much time on their hands. Says Salford Boro leaving a message on a football message board.

Doesn't overtime belong to the dudes and dudettes, therefore the apostrophes are OK(if after the s)?

Its a good job the offended person doesn't work where i do. Fook me, they'd get worse than that. They need to get a serious grip.

Possibly B75. It could actually be spot on if there were an unfortunate couple known as Dude and Duddette.

I once had a formal disceplinery against me for "whistling cheerfully"

It got thrown out, soemone else had the same complaint against them as well....

I'm all in favour of banning whistling at work. And muttering to yourself when you're reading - it's one step up from running your finger across the text.

That music they used to play coming out of Ayresome?

'I've had a word with him telling him not to use language like that'

You had a word with the wrong person.
