Editor’s note
=============
All work and no bathroom breaks can make a receptionist rather
desperate. This week Linda Parrott asks for your advice on how
to balance the negative attitudes of staff who are supposed to
but don’t cover reception during breaks and the receptionist who
is rather tired of being caught short. Can you help?

Talking of bum deals, check out the Couch?! which investigates
your office pet hates including in number one place, cheap
toilet roll: http://www.hrzone.co.uk/item/145956
