  • staff absence write it down on Bruce's - staff absence wiki which would be set up for its purpose so only he can look at it and no one else, staff just leave a description of why, when etc. saves him going through his answer machine etc. he looks at a page and sees it easily laid out, even even cut and paste into that little spread sheet of his. Makes his job that less stressful.
