Railex Filing Folk Tales: Chapter Two

The second installment from the Railex Filing Folk Tales, featuring the exploits of some more familiar characters!

Holmes cocked his head in his customary quizzical manner. Smoke billowed across the room as he lit up his thirtieth pipe of the day. Watson recognised the look: Holmes was thinking.

“What’s the problem Holmes?” enquired Watson, staring over his copy of the Times.

“That case with the hound, something still bothers me. Where did we file the casework for the whole ghastly incident?”

Watson looked concerned; “It should have been filed in the usual manner” he said gruffly, looking towards the haphazard selection of files, curious objects and paraphernalia. He tried – and failed – to hide his look of disapproval as he observed Holmes’ filing ‘system’.  Holmes raised himself from his chair, approaching the aforementioned jumble with an air of determination. “Mrs Hudson!” he yelled, “why are my files in such disarray!?”

“Really Holmes” snapped Watson, “you can’t keep blaming that poor, long-suffering woman for what you really should be able to take care of yourself. Why does such a keen mind surround himself with such chaos?” As luck would have it, Mrs. Hudson then entered carrying a new set of sturdy files.

“Here” she said, presenting them to Holmes “I knew you would need this mess sorting out sooner or later, I got these from the Railex Filing stores. They are – in fact – the filing specialists, just who you need to solve your kind of a problem.” Holmes looked surprisingly sheepish for a man with such a usual demeanour of arrogance.

“You see” laughed Watson “quality filing really is quite elementary, my dear Holmes!”

Railex – The Filing Folk Tales

In the run up to Christmas, Railex will be publishing a series of ‘filing folk tales’ online.  These are a series of stories featuring well known characters from the public consciousness, amended to feature their hitherto unknown adventures with Railex Files!  These ‘stories’ were previously only available as printed editorial copy.  We start, this week, with our first foray into this captivating world, and some familiar woodland friends:

Mole sat in his office, held his small grey head in his hands and thought ‘Why me?’ He reflected on his morning, that had started with bright hopes of completing the Lennon-Smythe accounts, but had been brought to an abrupt halt by one phone call from Mr Toad. In many respects Mr Toad was being unusually reasonable, why shouldn’t he have a copy of last year’s accounts? But could Mole find the file? No, he couldn’t and had spent the last 30 minutes looking for it. Well actually he had spent the last 30 minutes stomping around, as best a mole can, and shouting at the poor rabbits to look for it.

Rat was passing and heard the commotion. ‘What’s the matter Mole, you haven’t lost another file have you?’ he asked. It was clear from Mole’s expression that his enquiry was unwelcome, and that this was unlikely to be an appropriate time to put forward improvements to Mole’s record management system.

Later, after Mole had calmed down, he met with Rat for a coffee. ‘The file had been on my desk all along’ he said, with a faint glow of embarrassment in his cheeks. ‘I need to go and see Badger and get some expert advice’. Rat sat back and smiled, ‘Compliance with the Practice Assurance standards is not rocket science’ he grinned, ‘I’m sure we can work this out with a little bit of help from Wise Owl up at Railex Nook.’

Mole had just finished clearing some cupboard space when his new suspension files arrived. Rat showed him how to label them with the names of his clients and then asked the rabbits to make sure that all the document files were labelled as well. ‘Wise Owl told us to make sure that there was a place for everything and everything in its place’, he reminded everyone.

Mole tottered on his kick-step before slipping and showering working papers everywhere. His head poked through the mound of paper and he smiled. ‘My dad always said that with hands like these I’d be more suited to a career in construction!’
