Edinburgh council's new offices apparently need a 30 page rule book to tell the staff how to behave, and they don't know whether to laugh or cry while they read it:

They mustn't talk to themselves or their computer, respond to questions from the doorway, talk loudly on the telephone - or type "noisily". Family photographs are permitted on desks but have to be removed if anyone else uses the same desk and staff must not hang jackets on the back of their chairs.

The council says that the guidelines were necessary for the new open-plan office, in which employees will "hotdesk" - share work stations with other employees.

Yep, it's the Dynamic Earth building. Worth a visit by the way!

The Dynamic Earth building has been there now for a right few years. It always reminds me of a mini Millenium Dome.
