And then it hit me.

Despite some strict rules (or rather, thanks to the lax enforcement of them), I occasionally send mails around with a few fun links or an appropriate picture gleaned from some site or another that I waste my employer's time reading.
One time I thought I'd embedded a picture in a reply to a mail beggin for someone to please take a ticket for a problem no one knew anything about.
Except I hadn't embedded the picture. Windows was helpful so while I actually saw the picture in the mail before hitting send, no one else could access the shortcut to C:\Documents and Settings\REC\Desktop\pics\pancake_bunny.jpg.

I asked the customer to send me the Web templates. Sure enough, they were full of "C:\Documents and Settings\JoeBlow\My Pictures\$OurBigApp\Graphics\*". The twit had made new templates with Dreamweaver or something similar and had used drag-n-drop to add new images.
It would've been a lot funnier if he'd saved the graphics to a shared directory on his notebook computer. The LoadRunner testing would've smoked his laptop's drive.
Root Cause: 17-Fuckwit.
