Work was steady. It'd been fairly quiet all day. Shifts for different people start at 7am, 8am, 11am and 3pm, so the standard office hours have the most people, but we cover 7am-11pm. There's been a little "slippage" at work today and I chipped the offenders about it. 5 minutes is only 5 minutes, but if they're continually late coming back after 3pm, or starting at 3, as happened today and as been happening for a considerable period of time, then they tend to think its OK, and they'll get later and later, and it'll be considered the norm, and standards will drop, the 4pm finisher will wonder what the heck is happening and new people starting will wonder what the heck is going on. At least that's my take on it. Call me an old fogey, but I wanted to do it gently and civilly before someone higher up the ladder came down on them a little heavier.
I was supposed to go at 3, but was busy closing my stuff off, so as they raced back in afterr an hour at the gym, I chipped em. Both said "sorry" but one said "No one ever says anything when we do something well". I retorted "that's life!" which it is and I know for a fact that the no one cares statement isn't true. I know because I care but there's more glamorous and high profile areas which seem to get the kudos, and we just have to live with that. Thats life.
