The setting- two things are happening at once.

1- My team moved offices over the weekend.

2- We had to prepare for a very tense meeting with disgruntled clients this morning.



To cope with point 1-

The usual crap we've done thousands of times before. Label up the important stuff so it's moved with us. Label up the crap so that it's incinerated. Easy-peasy.


To cope with point 2-

Pull all the relevant scheme files in preparation and label them up so they're moved with us over the weekend.


The worst case scenario = someone mixing up the stuff to be moved with the stuff to be incinerated. However, since we're old hands at this, and well-prepared, that could only happen if the job of doing the move was given to someone who genuinely cannot read. At all.






You'll never guess what they did. Incidentally, they do have an employee who can't read. At all.

I have spent a lot of today being shouted at. In the intervals when that wasn't happening, I was shouting at people.

Thread title disappointingly misleading. I thought you were seeking nominations.

You're all already on the list.

Solution: label up the guy as crap and see if it gets him incinerated.

No, you'd have to label him as inportant in order to get him incinerated.

Kill and incinerate everyone in the office, just to be sure.

Take off, nuke the site from orbit.

Laz, I really do wish I could watch your life for about 1 week.

I think that you yell at people at work because that's what you're expected to do, whereas secretly you don't give a fuck. It's like you're trying to run an emulation of a decent, middle-class pensions manager with a penchant for badly-planned DIY projects, while underneath you're really just a burned-out punk who had the misfortune to live 10 years too long.

You know you are going to have to tell Drekkus what they did?

No- I yell at them because they're being crap and because I'm really irritated on a visceral level by people who are paid large sums of money to be deeply useless.

it would be awesome if Laz were to someday be JM's boss..

Or better yet, if JM becomes Laz's boss

I break bosses. I've had five so far this year, and two are on long-term sick leave with stress.

Kinky. I'd have never thought of wanking somebody to death.
