The reason I don't comment more often is because your posts are too Kafkaesque for words.

I don't know what you did in a previous life, but it must have been very naughty. You, poor soul, have been condemned to bureaucratic hell on earth.

And right in the middle, too: the committee above, the workers below, and T. Aldous on another planet.
