I've heard of Deep Throat and Debbie Does Dallas, but never heard of this Green Door movie.

I have and I'm only in my 30s. They talk about that one and I think the other is The Story of O when some director comes out with an obviously er0tic movie and calls it "art". Most recently, I think parallels were drawn between these and Blue Is The Warmest Color.

Not complete PD, but I have a colleague that is very stubborn. Colleague sent me an email that student A had courses missing on her audit, but that were in her transcript. I finished my current project, then logged in to check this student's file and found that all coursework was there. I sent an instant message to colleague.
Me: I checked the file and all courses are there. You may need to use the "View All" button to see them.
C: I always use "View All"
Me: Ok. I checked and all of her courses are there.
C: I must have checked the wrong student, because I'm sure I clicked "View All", but those courses weren't there.
Me: Ok. You might want to check again.
C: I always click "View All".
Me: It's time for me to go. (I'm exempt, but hourly while colleague is salaried)
C: I know those courses aren't there.
Me: I have to sign off now.

Gah!

I'm curious, how would the VP know the p0rn reference?
It was very famous when it came out. I knew about it, and I was in junior high.

I'm not sure why you sound so surprised. Many people watch porn -- quiet, respectable people in positions of authority. It's not just watched by low-lives and creeps.

Yes this.   When I saw the question I thought "Well obviously because he has either watched the movie or has heard of the movie".  Those are the two ways he would know the reference, and both are perfectly reasonable.

I have heard of another use of the term "Green Door" as in using nature as one's restroom if there are no public restrooms available and one's out in nature.

So neither one really sounds like a good name for a child's puppet theater.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars.  You have a right to be here. Be cheerful, strive to be happy. -Desiderata

I am such a nerd, when I hear of a green door I think of the impossible garden from the HG Wells story. Which would probably be great for a puppet theater.

Behind the Green Door was also well known for another reason. The star, Marilyn Chambers, had previously been a model who was featured on boxes of Ivory Snow laundry detergent, holding a baby, epitomizing the soap slogan "99 and 44/100 percent pure." The manufacturer of the detergent was not amused and quickly pulled the boxes off the market, but not before the movie producers used the publicity to hype the film. So, the film is familiar to many, even people with zero interest in the genre

Back to PD- pretty sure one of my remote reports is forging her time card. I actually spoke to her today because she is logged into the system. Everyone but lead and admin were told to stand down until we hear from the client. Even I don't have anything to go today, so I have no time to bill.

I was asked by the boss to log in and see if anyone was on. If so, I was to remind them not to be there if they had no active functions.

Would you believe I have told her several times to leave the system and she still won't? Insubordination and theft will make for an interesting conversation tomorrow.

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, you suspect that she's logging into the system and then wandering off to do something else entirely while it looks like she is working because she's on the system?

Yes. I captured proof today. She billed time yesterday. 10 hours. As I am the one controlling work flow and there was nothing to work on, she's busted.
