This, of course, is largely because the majority of the supervisory staff either hasn't met spreadsheets in all their glory, or consider them a specialized operation somehow unrelated to daily functionality. I'm surprised, though, that the Heavy Geek Contingent hasn't introduced spreadsheets to the rest of the staff and made loud noise about how awesome they are and all and all.
You really should not have to enter the same number in the same position in an equation more than twice. Let alone four to five times. Let clearly alone NINE times, which is what I was doing today. Oh, yes, spreadsheets shall be introduced posthaste. People ignorant of the function of spreadsheets shall be introduced to them.
And I shall become as awesome a check-in person as the Check-In Princess. I have foreseen it.
