Ha. I've gotcha beat. I once worked at a very small company where you
couldn't go to LUNCH without facing the prospect that your mouse
might be gone when you got back. Of course, I locked my office when
there was nobody there to guard my stuff, but the system admin
couldn't lock his door because the servers were in there, so when
something broke, all I had to do was wait for him to go downstairs to
get an espresso, and VOILA! New equipment for me! YAY!

Unfortunately, that sort of thing is frowned on here at Lucent, so I
have to go through big boring procedures when I need something new.

Man, I miss that company sometimes.
