Kinda reminds me of some of the dialogue from "Office Space" (movie). Yeeeaaahh, weellll, I'm gonna need those TPS reports from you real soon:
: Hi, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.
: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.
: Yeah. Did you get that memo?
Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even really a problem anymore.
: Ah! Yeah. It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right!
