Oh ... Really?

On the cusp of the weekend

OK folks, here it is ... real simple like - PPP != 911

Yes, indeed ... piss poor planning on your part does not equal an emergency on mine. Mmmk?

So, at 4:45 on a Friday afternoon, when you discover that adding a new user to your workflow so that they can manage invoices while you're on a month-long vacation that starts in 15 minutes isn't working quite right, you do not have the right to yell at the IT support people and make like it's all their fault that it isn't working and you can't leave yet, and insist on also yelling at their manager, and the manager's manager, that it simply must be escalated to the highest of priority, and the server support team must be called in to work your issue RIGHT NOW and the whole IT department is completely incompetent because no one knows anything about your obscure little web application and why you can't set up security rights for another user ...

Now it's 10 after 5, I contemplate my gym bag and the step-aerobics class that starts in 15 minutes which I desperately need as I recall the mushroom-swiss cheeseburger, fried cheese poppers, potato chips, buttered popcorn, orange chicken, lo mein, crab rangoons and fried ice cream that were consumed this week, plus the stress of preparing for a big statistics exam tonight, and I file your ticket, email the support team that your *issue* simply must be taken care of RIGHT NOW, thank you for calling have a nice day, lock the computers, log out, hit the elevators and, beeyotch you just ceased to exist cause for at least the next hour and a half it's all about ME ...

Oh ... and then I get home after my class, rinse off the sweat, heat up leftover Chinese because despite being a bad girl all week, I have still managed to lose two more pounds, and post about this while I eat ... and as I type the last sentence of the above paragraph, Firefox crashes, but I restore the session and all the tabs come back, including the form text I have been typing! FIREFOX REWLZ!
