Bees Attack the Sheffield Office of Broadband ISP PlusNet UK

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 (8:15 am) - Score 1,629

The Sheffield based offices of UK internet provider PlusNet came under attack last week after a “swarm of killer bees!” decided that they didn’t need to live inside of a Bee Hive after all and could instead quite happily turn the ISPs front entrance into their new residence.

As it turns out “killer bees” appears to have been somewhat of an exaggeration, not that such a realisation made much of a difference to the ISPs staff whom promptly took to using the back door instead of the front.

Bob Pullen, Plusnets Digital Care Expert, said:

It’s not every day that your office gets attacked by a swarm of killer bees! But today that’s exactly what happened here at Plusnet Towers.

OK, perhaps ‘killer bees’ is something of an exaggeration, but plenty of the furry fellas did take it upon themselves to set up residence right outside our front door earlier this afternoon. It soon became talk of the office and it wasn’t long before the smokers among us were using entering/exiting the building via the back door.”

Thankfully the Balance office block on Pinfold Street was soon clear of the problem after a quick tweet to The Sheffield Honey Company resulted in the Bees being lulled into a basket for collection.

    “the smokers among us were using entering/exiting the building via the back door.”

    So Plusnet allow their employees to leave their work and hang around the entrance smoking?

      for a press release, they need to get someone with better grammar too.

      It’s not really a press release, just a personal blog post.

    @Essex guy, no we don’t – In fact smoking outside the front of the building is prohibited. There are designated smoking areas as I’d imagine to be the case at most office complexes?

    @Timeless, as Mark’s pointed out, it’s not a press release. Happy to take any tips on board from the grammar police though 😉

    Cue the media like headline puns…

    “Plusnet try to generate Buzz over product range”

    “Plusnet employees Bee-sides themself and held captive”

    “You will get stung using Plusnet”

    “Situation at Plusnet towers needs to bee smoked out”

    “Plusnet employee caught in honey trap”

    and i better stop now 😀

    Pity they didn’t stay a bit longer, they may have stung Plus net into some action in sorting out their verry poor service.
