|The above meme basically sums up my current experience|
I'm not prone to swearing, but near as I can tell the English language doesn't contain enough execrations to describe how I really feel about this execrable practice the chaps in HR Land have foisted on the rest of us.
I'm reminded of the "It's a clinker!" scene from the holiday cult-classic A Christmas Story, where Ralphie observes how his father, a particularly gifted wordsmith, "wove a tapestry of obscenity that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan."
If it's true that Mr. Parker's tapestry hangs still in the starry skies above the lacustrine feature at the Mitten State's western border, then I think he said enough for the both of us.
