    vidplaylist, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message and quoting our replies back to us, just click the Like button, please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.

    If you're "calling them" to your desk, it sounds like you're giving them no option so I wouldn't use "Would you mind ...?" I would say "Please come to my office [immediately]".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
