Is that harassment?

One of my jobs at work is to request product numbers and components for our various and sundry packages. In order to organize the...wow...60,000+ codes we work with, the various components have a 3-digit code. It's ALWAYS 3 digits. If it's not 3 digits, we add an "X" at the end to MAKE it three digits. Sometimes it's arbitrary (a "big book" is code 120), sometimes it makes sense (Freight is FRT). All the technology components' codes begin with "S."

I've been trying to figure out how to code a bunch of administrative fees for a few days now. We finally agreed to call them E-Learning (tech, thus Software: E-Learning.)

So the note on my desk says:

Please set up all component products with SEX product type.
Thank you.

*raises eyebrow.*

I'm just amazed that someone put that acronym together for you and didn't realize the connotations of it.

Well, it's right next to "SCX," "SXX," and "SHX". So in context...yeah, they knew.

My fave work acronym is for our "Reader's Fluency Theater" series. Flut, flut, flut...

And there were many titters heard in the company mail system. :)

I kept the post-it from that little note and stuck it to my "wall of mildly interesting things" :)
