This is a question Stupid Colleagues

Godwin's Lawyer tells us: "I once worked with a lad who believed 'Frankenstein' was based on a true story, and that the book was written by Shirley Bassey." Tell us about your workplace dopes.

This actually happened today!
In an IT meeting about how details of proposed system changes need to be entered into a form and then approved / rejected by senior IT, my colleague uttered the following as he made notes...

"Requests for change....fill in an RFC form....what does RFC stand for?"

A moment of silence, then everyone looking at him, then looking at each other to make sure they've heard him right. Followed by plenty of belming once the meeting had ended.

Glad I'm not the only one that gets all wound up about this.
We now have a change management team who handle RFCs (Requests for change).
I've repeatedly pointed out that the acronym is already taken, been in use for ages and that assigning it a new meaning will only confuse things, but will they listen? Will they fuck. The bastards.

I've even pointed out the humurous ones like RFC1149, but it's like taking to a brick wall.
