Blah

So, perhaps I do have a case of the Mondays. What's it to you?

With that said, here are the Rules Not to Piss Brandi Off (Work Version):

1) If I take the time to type an email missive to you, READ IT. I, after all, have to read every poorly written excuse for an email you send me.

2) No, I don't want to make your life any easier. As it is, I have written you a computer program that a monkey could run. Using a mouse to click a button is NOT a lot of work, so quit whining.

3) Unbeknownst to you, I do actually have other work to do. Some of this work may be more important than your work. Learn to be patient.

4) If you have a problem, explain it in detail in writing. Emailing me to say, "It doesn't work" just means it won't work longer. Leaving me a 15 minutes phone message will only make me email you and tell you to email it to me.

5) Look, lets face it: I'm a techie. I know that sometimes I get carried away and technical terms creep in that you don't understand. If that happens, tell me that. I will not flog you for this. I might, however, explain things to you again so that you understand them.

If only people followed at least these five, I wouldn't be insane today.

lies, all lies

That's not true and you know it! :)

Re: lies, all lies

I don't know what you mean. ;)

Re: lies, all lies

See, you can't even make up your mind about whether or not you want to be crazy!

May I advise?

Don't ever EVER do technical support for a major ISP. If your list is true, you WILL kill yourself. Last night, I waited 15 minutes while a woman who didn't speak english tried to restart her computer. I took today off.

Re: May I advise?

I have done tech support, but not for a major ISP. I think I would kill myself! I'm happy to hear that you took today off, though.

I'll all for taking "mental health" days. Of course mental health = if I don't take the day off, someone will die a horrible death. ;)
