Mistaken Identity

It was announced a couple days ago that someone is leaving the company. I can’t imagine why anyone would ever want to do that. But anyway, we’ll call him Jack.

Jack just so happens to have the same last name as another guy who works in the company. We’ll call him Ray.

Carlton sent an email to HR this morning asking when Ray’s last day was so we could cut off his access to everything.

HR is as incompetent as IT and didn’t catch the mistake. They happily told Carlton that tomorrow is his official last day, but he left for good yesterday.

Cool, easy enough. Carlton asks the rest of IT to begin terminating Ray’s access.

Minor problem – Ray still works here. Jack is the one who left.

I’m gonna keep that one to myself though and see how this plays out. Sorry, Ray, just take the afternoon off.
