Wish they'd go an extra mile - Ed's journal
Wish they'd go an extra mile
We here, have a 'Going the Extra Mile' award. It's a freebie voucher, for a meal, that basically recognises effort above and beyond the call of duty. Or, as we have seen recently, for being the best suckup, or particularly good at claiming credit for work other people have done.

However, a collegue of mine has just proposed having an 'opposite'.

A 'wish they'd go an extra mile. Straight down'.
Or maybe the 'Going the extra mile. Straight down. From 36,000 feet' award. (Name suggestions please?)

To be awarded, informally, amongst the ITC employees for the person that period, who has made our lives most miserable.

The recipient will receive, absolutely nothing as a result, and we will probably never mention it. However, it will give us a focus for our hatred and bitching about incompetent manglement, fuckwitted customers, and retarded end users.

Nominations for this quarter, please send to me by the end of August. Same situation as the Going the extra mile - a name, and supporting information as to why this asshat deserves the award.
A panel shall be convened, down a pub somewhere, to decide which of these bitches is the bitchyest. (is that actually a word?)

"Pissing in the Bilge" might not be a bad name, assuming you have some knowledge of naval terminology :)

I kinda like "Beautiful Disaster of the Month," too.
