since I’ve been drop-everything-and-go-for-a-walk-now pissed off. Stressed? Oh yeah. Depressed? Uh huh. Pissed off? Not so much; it takes someone with a special talent, and I try to avoid those people. Today though… man.
XKit really needs an extension to add a “You know what, no, I don’t ‘like’ this — fuck this” button to certain posts.
Did a thing at Starbucks this morning. Managed to grab my drink and sneak out before the barista had a chance to explain to the folks behind me. Stupid grins.
Meetings all day. (Not to be confused with an all-day meeting.) Didn’t get a damn thing done, but we talked plenty about all the stuff there is to do. After the impromptu 4 o’clock hey, you got a minute with my manager I packed up and went home. Took a nap. Ate dinner. Had ice cream. Now to pull out the laptop and start on my (TOP PRIORITY - URGENT!) action items from this morning’s conference call.
The 4 o’clock with my manager was to tell me they’re giving me another headcount so my group can do the things we’ve been charged with doing in a timely manner. I’ll probably end up poaching one of the techs from our escalations help desk. Trying to decide if it’s bad taste to just take a net down there and capture one while they’re on a call. Where’s my hat…
Reviewing feedback on my process documentation:
Interpret whatever appears on-screen to the best of your ability.
It is likely that this will end in tears. You have been warned. Godspeed.
I feel bad for the poor guys that won’t get the warning that the thing they’re being told to do will not end well. :(
