You'll get used to the feeling, even to the point of being disappointed when you get the OK on an assignment.
If you believed that, can I interest you in a nice patch of swampland in Florida?
Enjoy the abuse!

Good enoughs are such a slap in the face...
But they are SOOOO much more fun when you're the one giving them *evil manical laughter*

Yikes, who let that Jason guy in here?!
The deep meaning of "good enough": You left another stupid little mistake in there but this assignment has been sent back so many times I'm just sick of looking at it so just keep it now, OK? Please.

It is the Java Ranch equivalent of social promotion.

Maybe I've been away from the States too long...
Mike M, what's "the tap"?
Mike P, social promotion?
