What does working in an office really entail? Getting up early, the hassles of the daily commute, the coffee run, keeping your boss happy (and naturally letting him or her think that their decisions are theirs alone when in fact it's your brainwave that's solved the problem - unless, that is, you actually want the public recognition as a mastermind), making sure you're not passed over for promotion while at the same time avoiding any unnecessary work, or perhaps a little gentle flirting over the photocopier. In fact there's so much to be packed into each and every day that work just gets in the way - and we all know that can only mean one thing - the urgent need for a duvet day! But help is now at hand. With her inspirational "The Office Survival Kit" Tanya Sassoon can now ameliorate any difficulties you face, as she helps you achieve the main objective - to do as little work as possible while retaining your job.
As you learn how properly to use the euphemism 'she's in a meeting', or ways of livening up a boring afternoon with jolly japes, you will also become confident in making personal calls as you apparently work your socks off, then move on to advanced excuse-making before finally ensuring that you thwart the rise of your less clued-up colleagues. And, perhaps most useful of all, handy guidelines will alert you when it's time to move to pastures new - a job where it's easier to get away with things.
