Office Space is a funny movie cause it’s kinda true.
We’re all a little bit like Peter Gibbons, asked to come in on a Saturday and reprimanded for not following some stupid office protocol. We all feel a sense of liberation when Peter, after candidly telling the Bobs about his lack of productivity, announces to his love interest he simply “is not going to go” to his job at Initech anymore.
Hopefully your Lumbergh is not as bad as the one in the movie. Hopefully your boss has an idea how much work goes into keeping a network running, and recognizes you for your efforts. Unfortunately, that’s not likely.
We challenge you SysAdmins — tell us your personal Lumbergh story. Send an e-mail sysadminday at opendns dot com. Best story wins.
