What "Rules" do you have in your business

We have a hard and fast rule in Graffic Jam. If we buy a piece of equipment for the workshop, it HAS to be able to open a bottle of beer.

This has been tried and tested on such things as:

heat guns,

Laser Thermometers

Fridge (to hold said aforementioned beer),

Ute (vehicle that carries all of our stuff)

Every ladder, scaffold, step, screwdriver, socket, drillbit, tape measure, (even our laser level)

Even Arnie... (THE LAMINATOR!!!).

Reps who come in to sell us stuff look a bit sideways at us when we ask if it can open a beer. We've just bought in the past week a new toolbox for the Ute and a Wurth drawer system for our fixings (all opened beer prior to purchase).

What Rules do you have?

We're talking BEER here Rob, not Comfort and lemonade ;-)

The rules we have vary somewhat
As a measure I usually take one or two with me cos sometimes when you're measuring the end bit gets stuck and you can't get the blighter out again. Having a back up is essential
There's the rule on a reel which measures longer distances - no reely its true!

My Auntie was arriving at the train station and I was centimetre
(slightly off topic I know but she is my best auntie)

Then there's the metal rule: Don't hit your finger when using a club hammer

Not so much a rule - as what not to do:

"Once there were four workers. Their names were: Somebody, Everybody, Anybody, and Nobody. They were very busy people, but whenever there was a boring job to be done, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did. When Nobody did it, Everybody got angry because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Somebody would do it, but Nobody realised that Nobody would do it. So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done in the first place"

Also know as "pick up your own crap!!"

My rules are simple.

If its the wrong colour - its the suppliers fault
If an account has not been paid - its the banks fault
If messages don't get returned - its the phone companies fault
If you didn't get the quote - its the software's fault
If its cut wrong - its the computers fault
If I'm late for an appointment - its the wife's fault
If I didn't get the message - its the kids fault
If it hasn't been done as promised - its my dads fault
If it is the best job you have seen - I'll take full responsibly for it.
