"Excellent," the new Boss burbles as the PFY updates the 'days since last workplace accident' sign (put there since the last IT decimation). "Ten days since the last accident." "I think you'll find that's a binary number," the PFY says. "Still... 10 days," the Boss counters to much rolling of eyes. "And that's only because …
LOL what a place to work
Dammm I need to find a job as assistant to the BofH alongside with the PFY these guys have it well...
They don't pay tax and anyone who wants to dob them in "mysteriously" leaves without a trace,,,,
Well Done Simon you made up for the not so brilliant episode last week!
Hey! What happened to Simon?
Allways nice to have the quiet support of higher management.... :-)
The Bastard's back - but not in his usual form...
Quality! It almost suggests that users learn... Ha! That'll be the day!
a soft spot...
so it would appear the CEO *DOES* Have a soft sport for Simon and his PFY afterall!
this one made my laugh to the extent of some of my sandwich ending up on my monitor. Keep it up Simon!
Another Quality Episode!
Well made up for the one last week! Great to see the CEO getting his hands dirty!
Ahhh...good to see that Simon...
Still has his Homicidal tendencies, and they can't be removed by the ravages of time!!
It really is good to see the BOFH at the helm of another 'inexplicable' accident (even if he didn't cause it), but at least we know that, if it came to the crunch, HIS name would be where the CEO is now (could also mean some form of blackmail for increase the "operating budget", methinks!)
I would have started the monitors running the moment the boss had walked out, keeping a "technical" eye on things, but can't win 'em all, eh?
Great weekend to all the people in BOFH land
Your friendly neighborhood Printer Engineer From Hell!
Still, 10 days...
I'm just glad it didn't go 10 more days, because the Boss would have become suspicious if the board said 100 already...
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.....
As always........Although one cant help but miss the satisfaction that comes from high voltage Kzzzzeeerrrrrttt!
Oh the good ol' days!
only one thing to say...
BoFH, we salute you!
I can't get by without my weekly fix, and this one was absolutely genius. I may have to go back and read the archives for the 20th time :D
The CEO is the PFY's uncle...
if I recall way back when he was first appointed.
Don't make me do it .... Damn you all to HELL
Don't make me do it....Damn you all to HELL. Now i am gonna have to go back and re-read all of the past BOFH
Now i have a full day ahead of me .....
Didn't they leave the company the PFY's uncle was the CEO at? I thought Simon got fired and the PFY followed him by testing gravity with his uncle's laptop.
Its just not FRIDAY without BOFH!
Thanks again for making my Friday complete! Makes up for the dodgy quiz last week....well almost!
Funny... but geez... if such a company really existed, a war zone would probably be safer to work in.
True to form
Ha! A clear example of horizontal and vertical integration of corporate responsibilities. Not all managerium is dense, apparently.... The CEO must be made from a hitherto unknown isotope.
...but not in the IT department... unless you were the boss, a consultant, an external technician (unless equally evil), a salesman (unless in the pub) or anyone except the heroes.
Hmm, see your point!
Does make sense, even the dumbest (l)user knows the jam they`d get into if the IRS finds out about their moonlighting and other shady dealings.
Beware of the...
That is the sign on Simons farm gate.
Good episode... minus the Terry Waite bit!!
They quit that place around the time of the y2k bug if I recall..
Class, sheer class
When surrounded by idiots and time is dragging by like a dog after a vindaloo on the carpet of life, BOFH never fails to put things into perspective.
And his metaphors are much better than mine....
Keep it up - I wish I could....
I'll get my coat....
'days since last workplace accident'
really needs to be updated with
"Todays workplace accident rate".
Just keep the same font style and colour and only those who actually bother to read the signs will note the slight change in wording. Would produce some nice non-zero numbers.
I really do wonder what the running rates are. Lost work-days, limbs, personnel and trespassers. (ie salesmen, auditors, engineers and other unwelcome personages)
Heh - Might just have the bored but affable graphic artists here bash one up between time wasting alterations to already approved paste-ups .... ^_^
Wait a bloody minute
Are you lot saying that this isn't how businesses in the UK really operate?!?
Damn, time to put this visa application through the shredder I suppose... I was all set to move just to see this wonderful working environment!
