From Bosley's New Dictionary of Received Ideas

Kafkaesque.  adj. Involving a document that requires more than one signature.  (I can't take this piece of company equipment valued at $180,000 outside the building without showing the security guard this form signed by my boss and my boss's boss.  How Kafkaesque! ) [f. Franz Kafka, that guy who wrote that story about the guy that turns into a cockroach.]
