Wicked. Fuckin'. Professional, yo.

The Great Fire on Nantucket began in a hat shop on Main Street on July 13, 1846.

And that, boys & girls, is your Nantucket Nectars Bottlecap Fact for the day.

R.S. Monkey,, this one's for you.

so about two days ago, one of the project managers & I were sending edits of an e-mail back & forth. At one point, I replied with the header line "post e....craaaaaaaap..."

Sadly, this was the e-mail when I got it right. Why sadly? Because instead of erasing the subj. line & the comments below, my project manager just sent it out to the Approval Committee as is, including the subj line of "craaaaaaaaap" and my assertation in previous exchanges where I state, "Dude, we've gotta get this right some time. If nothing else, the law of averages says so - and when we've got math on our side, we can't lose!"

Wicked. Fuckin'. Professional, yo.

the funny part is that the whole issues with the e-mail campaign have moved on from the approvals to the backend arrangements, but no one ever changed the subj line of Proj. Mngr's E-mail, so there's still emails popping up in my inbox with the header "craaaaaaaap...."

Actually, I have to say that at this company, they probably didn't even blink at the whole thing, considering that this campaign had the debate of a brown silhouette of a tree versus a green tree, and that formed sides which were dubbed the "Pro-poo Tree" & "Anti-Poo Tree" factions.

A-Team vs. Macguyver!
Cavemen vs. Astronauts!

In a fight to the death, who would win?!
