Paperless Office

I am an accountant.  To me paperless office is like a paperless toilet, highly undesirable!

like the paperless toilet, will never happen...

The idea (much like with a toilet) is not to mind when the used paper is thrown away rather than hole-punched and kept for six years....

I had the pleasure of a toilet less toilet in India.

Mind you, a 2 inch paint brush on a length of rope was provided to facilitate the ejection of offending waist into the street via a mouse hole in the wall.

All this to the amusement of a dozen locals peering through the public gallery above ones head.....

There will always be the case with a pad and pencil fixed to the wall, inscribed with the immortal legend

"in case of emergency break glass"

Paperless is a waste of time

My scanner takes ages. Most of the stuff I used to scan can be found online so I just pile it up no. Saves filing and scanning. I reckon piles of paper store heat.

Anything important is dealt with straight away then the paperwork becomes useless. Don't file just pile.

Make jotters out of the printouts if you want.

Enlightened accountant

Can't find one at John Lewis
