Conversation I had today:

Me: I need to get this access granted so I can do thing_1 because there's no one else who can do it.

Person: Hm, OK. We should have a meeting to discuss this request. Please invite your other_person who would be responsible for doing this task.

Me: The reason I'm making this request is because THERE IS NO OTHER_PERSON.

Me: *frustrated_sigh*

@mike department of redundant bureaucracy department

@mike Have some arbitrary not-all-that-busy person get the access granted, with you as the other_person.

@wizzwizz4 @mike even better.. just go over or around this annoying_bureaucrat instead of going through them. Asking dad because mom said no is a life skill. 😉
