A week to do what?

I think I know why NRMA insurance aren’t answering phone calls in a timely manner, they’ve assigned all available resources to direct marketing.

I must say too that whoever designed the shower rooms obviously has never used showers in a workplace environment, as there were too few places to hang clothes and no room to put a seat so that you can sit down to put your shoes on.
