Why would they do that when they can wipe them clean on your keyboard during your lunch/toilet breaks.

Yes?

It's worse when you used to go but now you're poor or have responsiitlies and stuff and have to hear them bang on about it like it's easy to find the obscene 300 quid or so it costs to actually go with travel and food, ticket, booze etc. I'm currently still wearing a Glastonbury braceler from 2011 and it's strawberry floating depressing.

Can you not buy a 2015 model from ebay so you don't feel left out?

Use of redundant reflexive pronouns in emails by morons at work e.g. "this contract has been terminated by yourself". That's a horribly constructed sentence as it is but the "yourself" bit just makes by blood strawberry floating curdle.

Do the needful is a genuine thing. It's the most Indlish phrase I've heard though. I hear it all the time from one of our clients as they've outsourced a lot of work to India.

I've seen "do the needful" written in emails from our India office as well.

We don't have an Indian office, so "do the needful" never comes up.

"Please kindly do the needful" was how emails from India always ended at my last employer.

It does make sense. The Indians are probably better spoken than the British anyway.

I try to avoid "-self" unless it seems to clarify where the focus/onus is on someone.

Yeah we get the "needful" stuff as well.

Something else we also get when raising an IT ticket is "please kindly confirm the same".

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
