Yes folks, I'm actually that bored.
My job is very deadline driven, so we have automated systems for generating deadline reminders. Except both my bosses are awful at using it properly so it's basically useless to me.
So instead I have my own colour-coded task spreadsheet, sorted by due date. It gets updated as tasks arrive, and I do a big check once a week to make sure it's all sorted.
This is backed up by stacks of physical files, ordered by location in my office and stacked in due date order. Once a week I cross-check these with the spreadsheet.
Unassigned tasks in my inbox are red flagged until incorporated into the system. Red flags are checked once a day.
My boss frequently has a go at me for being disorganised. She is aware of these systems.
