It was San Francisco.  Here are some stories on it; I'm sure DDG can
find others:

Agreed, but you need to a) impress on your manager that he should not
break into the passwords unless you really have quit or been hit by a
bus, and b) trust your manager not to do a).  If you don't really trust
him not to do something stupid with the password list, hide it somewhere
else and tell a trusted colleague where it is.
