The best dog I’ve ever owned also had an interesting name, Peeve. She was my mom’s pet Peeve. Anyway, I’d like to share a pet peeve I have in regards to report names. I cannot tell you how many people I’ve met that actually put the word “Report” into the title of the Report.

Vendor Summary Report
Sales Report for Part Number 123
Weekly Repair Metrics Report

Ugh. We know it’s a report. It’s redundant and a waste of time to include the word “Report” in your report. This is something else I learned through the pain of red ink from Mr. Girard.

After all, you don’t see best selling authors creating book titles that end with “The Book.”
