  • Been there, done that. It can even be great fun, if the people you're being A Big Meanyhead to *deserve* it.

    In my case, they did. When your department (of three people) has worked 24/7 for a week to come up with years' worth of records required by federal law that another department wasn't keeping (or rather, wasn't keeping in the legally-mandated method and format - no making up numbers involved, just reformatting), they should say "thank you."

    When they not only don't, they come to you three months later and ask you to do the same thing again BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T CHANGE THEIR PROCEDURES EVEN THOUGH THE THE FEDS HAD *SCHEDULED* A SECOND CHECK, then you're justified in enlarging a panel of Dilbert where one manager is telling another "FOOL! GIVE ME YOUR DEPARTMENT!" and posting it on the door of your office.

    Nobody ever called me a bitch, though. A real bitch would have just let him go to prison.

    (It *was* tempting.)
