I saw this taken to a rediculous extreme at one of the big London 
accountancy companies. I went for a contract system management 
(sysadmin) job and they asked what my specialisation was. One of the 
jobs available was managing the print queues. I came from a background 
where 3 people looked after everything. They ran the place like a 
mainframe shop with a huge staff but noone who could look after a 
machine alone.
