BB, C How Stupid We Are

Apparently, the BBC have a revolving door policy.

Staff at the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) have been given instructions on how to walk through a door, a tabloid newspaper reported.

 

The Sun, Britain’s biggest selling daily newspaper, reported that workers at the global broadcaster’s offices in Birmingham had been issued with a memo advising them on how to get through a revolving door.

 

An email, sent to 800 staff — complete with matchstick man diagrams for ease of understanding — comes after one worker trapped her foot in the new doors at the BBC’s offices in Britain’s second city, cracking a toenail, The Sun said.

 

“Follow these simple steps each time you use the doors,” says the memo entitled Revolving Security Door User Instructions.

 

“To enter the secure space move directly into the revolving door compartment.

 

“The door will start automatically. One person per compartment. Keep hands, feet and bags away from the edges of the door.”

 

A BBC spokesman told The Sun: “We are keeping in line with the Health and Safety at Work Act.”

But this is just the tip of the stupidity iceberg.

Employees at BBC Radio Sheffield had previously been instructed on how to get through the often confusing and peril-laden task of boiling a kettle.

 

The Sun quoted the edict as saying: “Remove lid from kettle and fill kettle with water.”

Next lesson: How to turn on the lights.
