Awards are horse shit.

My department head—as great a man as he may be—won't let me just put myself in for a letter of appreciation.

Consequently, this is the third time that it's going back to the folks in our admin department.

What pisses me off the most about this is the seemingly piecemeal way in which the package is being picked apart.

Now I understand that there are multiple folks looking at it each time it makes it just a tiny bit further in the routing chain, but...

Come on, man.

I don't care about this award.

Y'all know that I don't care about it.

And yet here we are.
