Don't laugh -- we're all positive that one of our colleagues did that.
(Oddly enough, Dilbert had our experiences a month or so after we did --
right down to a meeting scheduled to find out why so much time was being

I'm no longer working there ... I'm just trying to find out what to do
should I ever again find myself in that situation. I usually get along

situation was really unnerving <sigh>.
