Oh man.... well.... ok. Here's the rest of that story. Shortly after that my boss was fired and he was replaced as IT Director by a fellow with one year experience with PCs, I was let go soon after that. The one who did the job changes was fired soon after that.

But more to the one year experience... Prior to coming into this IT Department as a minimum wage gopher (his "one year of experience"), he had been a worker in a Marina where his nickname was "Captain Backwards" because he had apparently inadvertently sailed a customer's yacht backwards across the marina basin, causing a whole lot of damage.

With the advantage now of a few years, that part is even funnier than the pan of cookies.
