Nothing to Report!
Author: roustabout

I found a similar report somewhere (probably here) and decided my then-employer needed this, given their fetish for paperwork.  I never had the need to use it and I imagine it would have caused some mystified looks among mangement.  Having been retired now (today is my anniversary!) for six years, I have never needed it, sadly.  Late April fools!

Lou, I once found a Spokane, Portland, & Seattle  " Nothing to Report" form.

Great Northern had a form which the user addressed to whomever, reading "Report of ______ for month of _____________ is blank."

We had a shortline in our area that had an "Unusual Occurrence Report". A few crewmen got called out on the carpet when they handed in that form and stated that the "Unusual Occurrence" for the day was that they did not go on the ground due to the condition of the track.

I had one or more of the BN variety - now somewhere in a box in a storage unit.

Had stuff like that in the military. "Negative reports are required."

I believe I posted the original, which was an MKT form. The layout and text is nearly identical.

Way back when there was still an agency at Surf, Ca, the clerical staff had to send in at least twenty monthly reports to various departments iin San Francisco.  At the end of one month, the agent instructed the clerks not to send any of the reports, and we'll see how many people are paying any attention to them.

Over the next month, they got 6 or 7 'traceers,' so they sent them in.  In the next 2 or 3 months, they got two more tracers, and ended up sending in 9 of the 20 forms they used to send, and nobody noticed!
