So Scott, what are the chances of becoming a full VP? Good luck with that.

Director of Green

The story reminds me of one of the best episodes of the Dilbert Comic series ever:

PHB: "Let me introduce you to Andy, our new Director of Green!"

Dilbert: "Director of Green? How do you get a position like that?"

Andy: "You start with being the director of something else and screwing it up.."
