Office staff urged to cover their mouths when talking to each other, like footballers do


Office staff are being asked to cover their mouths when chatting to one another, so that vital photocopying tips don’t get picked up by lip readers.

Many office workers fear nothing more than vital office tactics and instructions leaking out to rival offices.

Office manager, Peter Thape was quick to cover his mouth recently when telling a colleague that the yoghurt in top right hand corner of the fridge was his.

‘I told Shelly on Friday about a mousse I had in the fridge; forgot to cover my mouth,’ said Thape.

‘Lip readers had it; the fucker was gone by half nine,’ added Thape.
