Am I being unreasonable??

Oh goodness me, sometimes I feel like such a moany old fart but I get so aggitated and annoyed at people who just don't get the message!

I work in a company that does microsoft and CISCO certification, so we're basically a training centre. We open from 8.30am - 5.30pm and classes run from 9am to 5pm. Now I like to get into work by 8.15am so I can make sure the tv is on, put the newspapers out on the rack, make sure the coffee machine is stocked and make myself a cup of tea. It has nothing to do with anybody else what time I get to work as long as I am at reception and all the sign in sheets are laid out by 8.30am when the doors open.

Well it happens at least 4 days out of 5 that delegates arrive at 8.20 or sometimes earlier and bloody building reception let them in! For goodness sake WE ARE NOT OPEN!! Why must they do that?? If I get to M&S at 10.15 on a Sunday morning the people inside don't let me in just cause they are there already.

Every institution in the world has operating hours why the hell must we be any different!

Besides that the delegates are told that access to the main building is from 8.30am and if we are not open then what is the point of arriving so early??

I am a moany old fart aren't I??
