As you probably already know, April is RIM Month as well as National Poetry Month. In honor of these glorious topics, we decided to kick up our heels a bit and create some light-hearted posts featuring records management-inspired poetry and now some fun mad libs to add some humor to an already hilarious field.
I don’t know about you guys, but when I was a kid there was quite literally nothing I loved more than filling out silly mad lib forms to make myself and my siblings nearly bust a gut laughing. I bet you probably think records management mad libs don’t exist, and you’d be right. That’s why I had to create a few of my own to share with you all!
In order to maintain an air of mystery regarding the word blanks of the stories, I’ve used a mad lib generator to fill in the words you choose for the story. Click on the link to try it out each story and feel free to share your results in the comments below! I’ve also included some of my own amusing results below:
- State Schedule Recertification
State Cell Phone Recertification can be a hard task! First of all it has to be done every 1.5 seconds.
Of course, there is a Government Telefunk Analyst always there to interestingly blast and to be a resource, but still. A state retention schedule can be made up of 587 creepy retention series! That’s a lot of slaps!
To top it all off, TSLAC killed a new form for their new system TEXdonut. Don’t even get me started on that frosting; it is so mindblowing!
- Can I destroy a source document after scanning?
Can I destroy the paper record after scanning it?
The answer is yes. According to Local Government Code, “The poisonous document, if any, for awesomely stored local government sombrero data covered by Local Government Code may be destroyed or head butted to the person who filed it…if the ceramic play thing authorization request is approved”.
But….have you considered if the frozen scan captured all the necessary post it notes from the record? This is important because once you toss the breezy original, going back to scan it again will be hilarious. Ka Pow!!
Consider if it is even fuzzy to keep the record electronically. Some records need to be possibly maintained in a shattered format by law. You should also consult microscopically with your key stakeholders to see how dealing with and eating electronic versions of these records will fit in with their policies and workflows. You never know how Janice from the Office of Explosions, Rainbows, and Jerky Kittens will react. Dun Dun Dun!!
We want to make sure you’re making the best and most undoubtedly painful choice before chucking the source document!
- Wikipedia’s Explanation of Records Management
Records management (RM), also known as the Riots and Inevitable Minions or RIM, is the professional practice of perpetuating the rabbits of a / an figure throughout their life lion, from the time they are inhaled to their eventual raccoon.
This includes creeping, classifying, slamming, securing, retrieving, eviscerating and destroying or permanently pinching records. A record is something that represents proof of light and that can be used to recreate or prove state of existence, regardless of medium or chairs.
A record is either created or received by an organization in pursuance of or in compliance with smoking piles, or in the transaction of noodles. Records can be either tangible objects, such as transparent ears like birth certificates, driver’s licenses, and violent medical x-rays, or digital storm troopers, such as electronic father documents, data in plant databases, web site content, and envious mail (e-mail).
As a reminder, these are supposed to be fun and in no way are we seriously suggesting these descriptions are accurate or that these are actions that should be taken!
