When the judges are away Part II

I'm going to get in trouble one day for this blog. But it's so much fun taking shots at others as I sit safely behind the computer - much like the anonymous posters on the KNS website message board do every day.

(Kidding guys and gals. I love you. Maybe.)

Anyhoo, as noted here, the local judges are out celebrating Spring Break (no, really they're at a judicial conference), so the nice ladies in "General Session Criminal Court" are hosting a jewelry sale (click on the picture for more information).

Now, I'm not sure if this is an OK thing to do for workers over there on the judicial side of the Deathstar, but it wouldn't fly on the executive side.

Just flip to page 16 of the Knox County Employee Handbook.

It states, in part:

“Solicitations by Knox County employees made to other Knox County employees are permitted only in non-work areas and during non-work hours.”
The handbook says non-work hours include “before and after scheduled work hours, lunch periods and approved breaks.”

Well, this shin-dig is set for noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday.

So do these folks get a two-hour lunch break?

Do they not have to follow the handbook?

If so, I want that gig!

I'd sell jewelry, Avon and Tupperware.
