Just one more thing...

It's the end of the year, and time for this IT pilot fish's annual review.

"I get called into the boss's office, and we go over the review," says fish. "Our review is based on a 1-to-5 scale, where 3 is adequate, 1 is above and beyond the call of duty, and 5 means you stink.

"I'm getting nothing but 1s and 2s, mostly 1s, and I'm feeling pretty good.

"Boss asks, 'Any questions?'

"I say, 'Nope.'

"Boss says, 'I have to lay you off.'

"I do a trout imitation."
