Re: The cranky thread
I really hate incompetent accountants who think they're smarter than I am.
Dumb ass at work played dumb when I confronted him with his rather obvious mistakes on three seperate accounts. Denied the mistakes were his, even though he signed off on it. Indeed, he was the only one to have touched the accounts until I audited them. He first tried to intimate that I didn't know what I was doing. Didn't work. He then rather obliquely suggested that I'd been the one that had made the errors, though I work strictly from printed copies. Everyone in the office knows I do this precisely for the reason that I don't want to make any keystrokes accidentally that could affect the work.
So, I spend the better part of the afternoon talking with my boss, defending my audits on this schmuck. Unfortunately, while a crappy accountant, the moron is a gifted con artist, so he had my boss half convinced I was either incompetent or crooked.
I was vindicated, but what a waste of an afternoon.
I hope the moron enjoys his newfound freedom from having to come to work.
