Friday the 13th

With any luck, I’ll get this posted in time to warn everyone. It’s Friday the 13th, and here are just a few of the things that could go wrong for all you auditors: 

  • The definition of internal auditing is changed to require everyone to bring donuts.
  • It is announced that you have been transferred to Marketing.
  • The government repeals Sarbanes-Oxley.
  • The word processor changes your reports, and there are now little hearts on top of all the i’s.
  • You can’t access the IIA Web site (or, even worse, this blog).
  • No matter how many extra words you include, you can’t get your report any more than 20 pages long.
  • No one confesses all day.
  • You can’t find your thumbscrews.
  • The auditees select you as favorite auditor of the year.
  • No findings.
  • The new chair of your audit committee is a Hilton — Paris Hilton.
  • They find out where you live.

So, what bad happened to you on Friday the 13th?
