October 10, 2014 - There really IS such a thing as too much choice

When the system the suits would inspect,
Nothing printed! The project was wrecked!
Can't those guys get the hint?
Well, of course it won't print
With the checkbox "Use ink" left unchecked!

October 9, 2014 - Let's not go overboard on this security thing, OK?

Of security, there should be oodles.
They should lock all their kits and kaboodles.
But the drawers they won't lock?
It would be quite a shock
If the thieves came for my Cups-o'-Noodles.

ABC123? Non-compliant!
The security risk here is giant!
I can't get through her head.
"That's a risk, ma'am" I said.
Even so the director's defiant!

After this, I know just what to do.
My career at the hospital's through.
To consulting, I'd go.
But in leaving, I know
Both that code and her PIN number too.

October 7, 2014 - There's CAN and then there's SHOULD

This new rack will make things look much slicker.
Down the system? 'Bout that they would dicker.
Though it might be preferred,
"No," was what the fish heard.
Electricians can do it much quicker.

October 6, 2014 - The ghost in the machine

There's a question they're asking of me.
Who is greeting our callers? Oh gee!
What we heard made us laugh.
Now they're asking their staff:
"Want an answering box? This one's free!"
