My company owning 21 prime location Wellington CBD office buildings, understandably includes among the circa 500 tenancies numerous government departments. With one particular Department which shall remain unnamed, a world-class wetness phenomenon has arisen, unique to Wellington.
That is every 2 hours, “work” stops and everyone stands and sings waiatas. I’m not making this up as it unsurprisingly sometimes leads to complaints from other tenancies.
Our management maintains close relationship with the senior management of our larger tenancies. Last week they were hosting one of the bosses from this Department and while I have retired from any active role I was in that day and over drinks raised this matter.
His response was that it greatly annoyed most of the staff and was confined to younger menial female wokesses. But to protest of course would lead to predictable tiresome charges of racism.
