Fiscal New Year’s Eve Fun: How To Handle Last Minute Time Entry Requests

Let no one say nothing good ever comes out of BDO.

From the tip box:

Hey Going Concern,
 
It's almost June 30, and you know what that means! Yep, BDO YE! That also means being bombarded with a million emails to enter all of our time. As a BDO lifer I don't know, but is time entry as big a deal at other firms? Please see below for one of the emails that was sent out. I was going to include the Excel file that shows the missing time (including the RBLL (Regional Business Line Leader) who was missing 112 hours) but figured I'd instead attach a jpeg that's been floating around our office.
Note the frantic "PLEASE ENTER ALL TIME" (yes, it came in ALL CAPS) email went out this morning. Good to know everyone's on top of the important stuff over there.
 
The email itself is not all that interesting so I'll spare you all (you're all smart enough to figure out it was a plea for time entry with an attached spreadsheet) and go straight to the pic that BDOers have been sending amongst themselves to feel better about these unreasonable requests on the last Friday before the new fiscal year.
