There's one dog you'd better not mention.

In the 1990's I (very briefly) worked at a place where all the PCs had their floppy and CD drives removed so that staff (below director level of course) couldn't install anything which would distract them from company business.
Which meant any time anything official had to be done the PC needed disassembling, a drive installing, the software run, then the drive was removed and the PC put back on the desk.
Better still is when the data grows large enough to require two tapes for the entire system - so they put the first one in, let the process run, come back and see that the tape has been ejected and there's a message on the screen saying to insert a tape to continue... Decades ago, so no idea on the wording, but it was ambiguous enough that for a lot of the time both parts went onto the first tape.
They normally break for the conferences, and with the way being PM changed ownership some sort of recess would have been expected, but the length and the timing was what upset everyone.
If Boris had said it was for a couple of weeks there probably wouldn't have been the cases.
