I don't know what made me think of this but...

Once I worked at a startup that hadn't hired a CEO yet. In all of our docs and presentations we'd write "TBD" in place of the future CEO's name.

The person we hired had the initials "TBD".

We didn't have to edit anything.

True story.

Now the sad part...

After we hired him there was a certain segment of the company that never felt he hadn't yet proved himself (or in CEO terminology... "he wasn't adding value"). Those people were much more blatant about referring to him as TBD.

Clearly, they should have hired me.

Don't think I ever met the man in question, but I know you guys and can vouch.
