Today was rather unusual - I was put into a homicidal mood twice before noon. Arguably, it would be a humane act. I took a walk to a supermarket and bought coffee and potato chips. A lot of coffee and potato chips*. Coffee is the usual way I handle time between applications. Also, during them.

Some determined, without consulting IT at all, that they would create their own numerical employee IDs. OK - we cope. Then, the idiot director of that department realized she wasn't in her own employee database - so she added herself and deliberately reused an existing number. There are all sorts of triggers and such - the horror propagated. The moron had 10,000 possible number to choose from (each year) for a staff of under fifty.**

A bright spot in all of this: they're so lazy about doing their job that it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.



* crisps to those of you who are hopelessly bound to a cloudy rainy isle.
** functionally, it's a department with the real company but is considered a separate entity.
