Scottish hospital workers got so irritated about their company sending them anti-stress emails that they overloaded their network with complaints.
Professional stress-guru Lynn Ogilvie, of the Lothian University Hospitals Trust Holistic Health Centre, emailed trust staff soothing daily poems. One of them, a Scots translation of a Japanese haiku, reads: "Disnae matter how ye look at it - ma heid's cauld."
But workers were unimpressed, and hospital bosses have threatened to remove staff email access if they don't stop clogging up the system with poetry-related messages.
IT manager Lynda Lawson sent out a message warning staff: "This email service is being jeopardised by those who insist on continuing this dialogue. Misuse of the service can lead to you losing the facility to email."
Ogilvie told the the Daily Record newspaper that it was good for people to complain about her poems because it "acts as a release for pent-up emotions ... Some must be like tight coils to become so angry. They need to lighten up".
A trust spokeswoman said: "The poetry is a great idea ahead of its time and it will continue."
