Observations from Under the Desk….
In the daily hostage situations we call ‘at work.’ There are high points and low points.
There are, however, always ‘Ah-ha!’ points.
It is the ‘Ah-ha!’ points which keep us coming back.
Sword wielding, marker throwing, and scissor acrobatics are also points. They’re just not the point I’m pointing too today.
Today’s Random Statement….
Poor Innocent Soul: “I’m going to propose….”
In Unison Response: “…but, we’re all married!?”
One must always be prepared for the sharp minds in IT.
In today’s IT Team Meeting we learned…
Boss: “IRM is affecting a users email and…”
Genius: “Italy’s most famous lover died while having sex with a 23 year old.”
Me…cause Analyst: “How does one quantify who the most famous lover is in a country? Is there a measure?”
Corvette-Crazy: “I’m sure there’s a measure…”
Boss: “A measure of a man…wait, let’s not go that direction…”
Genius: “He was 63 and had 6000 lovers; starting when he was 17.”
Me: “That’s how many lovers a year?”
Corvette-Crazy: “He would have had to sex every three days….”
Me: “I don’t like enough people for that kind of interaction…”
Boss: “You know we really need to fix the IRM issue and look at Active Directory. Do we have that slated for tonight?”
And that, my friends, is why people never understand what IT people are talking about.
Observation from the Desk of the Fitfully Frustrated:
The answer is always simple. Once you’ve incomprehensibly complicated things for a multitude of days.
