This is EXACTLY the kind of work I approve of. (I Get Paid For Doing This)

I have, for some time now, been asking my staff, when they save documents, to give the documents descriptive names. People have maintained the habit of short names that used to be mandated by a lack of computer memory, so that things are saved as "ltr.613," which is pretty unhelpful if you're trying to locate a particular document on your hard drive.

Instead, I say "save it with a phrase that will tell me what's in the document," a directive that my staff sometimes takes quite literally:

In case you're wondering, the letter was a request that a judge not take any action until I had a chance to review something.
