Is there a recording...

To clear things up with the Director can they look through the recordings of the conversations in the office? You know, the one that is kept for quality assurance purpose... perhaps in "digested" form, with a chart of how many times terms like "goat fetish" were uttered, and by whom?

I once worked with a guy who had a colleague at a previous job who was called Peter Enis.

I've run into something similar. Our username convention is last name first initial. We made an exception for a kid named T. Shi when he started school though.

similar

I tried to change my name at school to Ronald Oot, since I had access to the student information system. My boss, the system administrator, must have seen this before because the account creation job that ran nightly didn't create my new account. I was rather disappointed, and had a previously unscheduled meeting with him the next day...

...AKA "williamt"

I have worked at two small enterprise jobs where the scheme <firstname><initial-of-surname> was used for usernames and/or email addresses. It was only briefly policy in either case; in the former we had second thoughts about giving someone who came in at managerial level "christ@....".

Honestly I have never

Configured a netware print server to add a header page with the printing user on it, then weeks later add an "auto-print on inbox rule" before signing the user up to wife-swapping mailing list.

Re: Honestly I have never

Of course you haven't. Nobody would ever have admitted to configuring anything Netware.

Another use for goats.

You know, a good goat will do that.

"Perhaps we got off on the wrong foot" surely that word should be "hoof"??

Otherwise, brilliant... brings back so many memories (being on the BOFH's side of the conversation, of course)

If I had a dollar for each time I've had this conversation

"When is this happening?" I ask.

"All the time."

"So if I sent you an email it would appear and then be deleted?"

"It might be. Or it might be there."

"So actually it's SOME of the time - not ALL of the time."

"Well yes. But it's been happening for weeks."

"So it's been happening for a LONG time, but only OCCASIONALLY?" I ask

"Yes."

Oh, and yes, BRAVO!

rampant anti-goat bantor

why are you people goat bashing? They have a right to live as they choose with whomever they choose. Besides they are cousins to cows and I like cows, especially as hamburger or T-bones. btw goats make great BBQ
