What on earth has happened to the security in and around the Ministry of Magic building? The lack of response from anyone and the behavior of the rioters --for that's what they are. Let us not kid ourselves into thinking they were simply well-meaning protesters. They came with half bricks!-- is simply unacceptable. If we are not able to ensure the safety of Ministry employees, and the highest institution in the government can be besieged by a mob, then what can the public possibly hope for?
It's enough to make me want to leave the Ministry for good.
But I won't. It's obvious that no one here is capable of doing anything right. I am needed to make sure the machinery that runs this country works.
I need an ice pack. Someone give me an ice pack!
FLOOING into WORK is already DIFFICULT enough considering how many people use the Floo network. Between NAVIGATING through the sea of BODIES to get to the elevator and DODGING the PESKY REPORTERS from the Daily Prophet (who seem to have nothing better to do than to stand around the Ministry entrance and accost innocent workers about their opinions on the state of National Security and the Minister's sanity), it is a CHORE getting to WORK on TIME.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO ADD PROTESTERS INTO THE MIX. Pureblood, Muggleborns, Suibs-- it does not matter. If you are NOT a Ministry employee and you have a PLACARD (some of which are grossly misspelled. I don't know what a 'sosiel canser' is supposed to be), GO AWAY. This is a PROFESSIONAL WORK ENVIRONMENT and you are NUANCES. How are we expected to SERVE you if you GET IN THE WAY?
If I had my way, you will all be detained and formally charged as destabilizers. But, NOOOOOOO, we have to be DEMOCRATIC.
Where is that Kingsley Shaklebolt and what is he doing? There is an increasing pile of forms that have to be delivered to the Department of Mysteries, Department of Transportation, and Department of Muggle Affairs and none of them are being delivered. The Department of Transportation has already been circulating badly-made jokes about the general inability to transport anything to them. For the love of all that is pure and true, kindly stop these errant jokers.
Has anyone seen the Daily Prophet this morning? Disgraceful! Falmouth Falcons lose to Appleby Archers after a week's nonstop quidditch. As it turns out, the snitch was never even released from the box.
There is much to say about work ethic and professionalism. I can sum in up in three words: Not Arthur Weasley.
