Tartan Paint

I came across a glassy eyed, slack jawed student yesterday as she poured over our policies on our intranet. She looked somewhat bemused.

“Are you OK?” I asked, “Anything I can help with?”

“Is it important to have a whistleblowing policy?” She asked me.

“Yes, it’s vital we protect service users from…”

“Ahh yeah, the noise will upset them I bet.”

“Sorry?”

“Well, you know, the whistles might scare them.”

It was my turn to get glassy eyed and slack jawed.

“Erm, have you read the policy?”

“No, not yet, but I will – it looks really interesting.”

Your life may be in their hands one day…
