- Two women came up to me at the mall Customer Service desk saying they'd heard that one of the mall stores was a registration point for an upcoming charity walk. I hadn't heard anything, so I Googled it. The first several results led to the website of a local radio station, the main sponsor of the walk, but when I clicked through I was greeted with a stark black-and-white graphic (which I'd never seen before) indicating the site had been blocked due to corporate policy. I ended up using my phone to come up with the information, but I wonder why that Website had been restricted?

The other day the manager of a department came up to the desk complaining we were giving out the wrong version of one of his forms. There was only a slight difference between the two, but he'd been told not to use the incorrect one. He tried to make it into our desk's fault, but I pointed out that since both versions had the same revision date (Month/Year) it was difficult to figure out. I told him to email the correct version to my boss or make and give us a supply of the correct forms himself.
