General"You know you're a Version Control Avoider if..." Pinmemberkdmote19-Nov-12 7:52 
I am in the process of trying to introduce Version/Revision Control to a team of developers who have never used it. I will be giving a presentation that I hope will be a persuasive explanation of the importance of Version Control -- the benefits of using it and the liabilities of avoiding it. I would like to kick it off with an amusing but instructive list modelled after the "redneck" line of jokes. Can anyone help me add to this list?
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"You know you're a Version Control Avoider if..."
• You have a bunch of files or folders with names like Engine_05212012_works_old[2].cpp
• You've had to explain to your boss how you accidentally overwrote production code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't consider myself terribly witty, but I think a little humor could be helpful in this situation. Any ideas for how to extend this list?
 
[Bonus points if you can suggest a better moniker than "Version Control Avoider"]
