Seagull Task Management ...

Seagull's do get bad press, often deserved; there are always seaside tales of an individual gull or a flock, parading around, squawking their mindless cacophony, stealing food or defecating on hapless holiday makers. As well as fighting amongst themselves.

Fridays seem to encourage a certain class of co-worker or business associate from other organisations. In a fit of Gull'ish squawk, come swooping in and mimicking the behaviours of their feathered fiends.

Often assuming some misplaced authority - they dish out work they want at the last minute because their own management is of little note. Shoving out an email, with requisite flapping attachments - they absolve themselves of any moral imperative.

Occasionally - in a unique combination of this phenomenon and sods law - they do this before you are about to take a vacation.

Having had my fair share of Seagulls over time, experience has taught me that often they are easy to ignore. The feathered variety does not like a smack on the beak when it ventures too close. Unsurprisingly the human version is no different. Often seagulls can be ignored - as it would also seem to be the case with the human form as well.

They may do a little squawking, there may be a load of flapping and some of their effluent being deposited. After all, that is what Seagulls do. I am happy to complete important tasks in a timely manner, if they are offered (and requested) in a timely manner too.
