Most of you will remember that for most of my years in my last job I had a nemesis who I wrote about frequently (either in a "You'll never believe what the hell he did" or a more self indulgent "you think *you* have problems in your job?" manner). Well it turns out that on friday he was *finally* made redundant, I say *finally* because he was pretty redundant for the entire time he worked there. Unfortunately the joy is tainted somewhat by the fact that 11 other people (including both parts of a married couple) were also made redundant but overall, considering the jackass would have gotten me fired several times if not for good luck and a tendency to keep every email I was ever sent I'm feeling pretty good. Well, so much for their "everyone needs to work seven days a week, 12 hours a day for the next month so everyone can keep their job" work ethic.

Shame about the others though.
But it's nice to Monseur le Hole D'Arse get his orders!

To be honest, I think it outweighs any regret I feel about the others since I know at least one of them had been holding out for redundancy for months now. That said though, it doesn't feel like enough, they should beat him with sticks before he leaves, then I'd feel vindicated.

Maybe, but the guy has a supernatural ability to evade retribution - between being out "sick" when I was on the warpath or the entire project being dropped by the time he had utterly run the thing into the ground so it wasn't noticed how badly it had been screwed up. If I *did* go the baseball bat route he'd probably turn out to have an identical twin brother or something.
