PostSubject: I'm going to get told off again...   Tue Mar 31, 2009 3:05 pm

As some of you know, I work in the Finance Department of the local Hospital. I was therefore somewhat surprised this month when I received, stapled to the back of my payslip, a "Latex Audit" questionnaire.

Although I was initially annoyed at such a ridiculous waste of NHS time and money, I nonetheless decided to be a dutiful employee, and fill it in for them:

Have you been diagnosed with a latex allergy? Yes/No
If so, how have you been diagnosed:
a) Skin prick testing
b) Blood testing
c) Other (Please specify)

No. (a) Though I do wish they'd tested the skin elsewhere.

What are your symptoms when exposed to latex?
It depends who's wearing it
a) Skin (itching/rash)
b) Respiratory (breathing/tight chest/wheezing)
c) Swelling (tongue/lips)
d) Not applicable

(c) Other

Do you use latex gloves in the course of your work? Yes/No
No

Please specify any other latex products you come in contact with at work:
None. Purely in my own time for recreational purposes.

If this questionnaire raises any concerns for you please make an appointment in Occupational Health for further assessment
I consider this to be a private matter between myself, my wife, and Miss Sadie Whiplash of St Mary's Road, Southampton.

Gender: Male/Female
Male/Female (Weekends only)

That just made me nearly spit out my afternoon coffee with laughter. My husband gave my odd looks, to which i could only reply with 'latex'...

Well played, EHE! I wish I could see the looks on their faces upon reading your answers!

I got a reprimand at work last month for being an ass.

Not really relevant, just came to mind while reading this.

Don't really care as I'm an exemplary employee and everyone knows it. The other members of management were kind of shocked to hear about it.

The questionnaire stated that it was anonymous, so even if they do realise it was me, they can't admit to knowing that.
Laughing

Not that that would have bothered me. I always feel that employers who don't think about their policies deserve to be wound up.
Especially when you can use their own dress code statement to justify wearing a Batman mask (or demanding that any woman who wears hipster jeans must have their midriff on display)
Or when their "Statement of Equality" dictates that they ought to employ another 1400 transexuals, and provide suitable places of worship for satanists....

Most managers that have had a vendetta against me have learned in short order that I can quote company policy like a baptist quotes scripture and they really don't want to go down that road. Glad to see there are others out there that practice the same art.
