Jabba's Got a 'Tude and Mahala's Gonna Staighten it Out

Oh it's going to be a GLORIOUS day. I can just feel it right down to my chubby little toes. I got up this morning in a good mood, fixed my hair, slapped on some war paint, grabbed my spiffy new stainless steel unbreakable thermos and made it to the office early.

It just can't get any better right?

I wasn't here twenty minutes before someone managed to rub me the wrong way. Jabba, a large man who insists on wearing white polo shirts every day of the year while also managing to pour coffee down the front of those shirts every day of the year, decided that he wanted to play "it's not my job."

His office is on the other side of the building, where the main server is located. Our internet was down, so I called back there, as I have numerous times before and asked them to reset it.

"Oh um no, we don't do that. I don't know what's wrong with it and it's not my job."

Say wut?

"All you have to do is turn it off then turn it back....."

"No, we don't do that. You'll have to wait for Mr. Comes-in-at-nine-if-we're-lucky to get here."

I answered in my cheeriest, fakest, I'd-claw-your-eyes-out-if-I-weren't-such-a-wuss voice, "Okaaaaaaaay.. thank youuuuu."

Then, he calls me back a few minutes later and informs me that it's fixed, that I didn't know what I was talking about, it wasn't the server that was down, it was the internet.


If nothing else, at least I get to take Friday off. I'm going to G'boro to gather the Amazon one last time. She doesn't graduate until next Friday but she's done with all her exams and crap this week so we're going to get her moved out of the dorm and back home.

I saw where Craig Ferguson is going to be appearing down in Atlanta at the end of June. That's not too far from here, I'm thinking.... maybe.... but why does it always have to be when it's so dang HOT? I'm not a small woman, I'm prone to melting. Still, I've been toying with the idea. We'll have to see how the money/vehicle situations play out.

Okay, now I've vented and I feel better. Ya'll have a good Monday.

I had a friend who worked as an IT manager, who once had someone call her up and accuse her of "breaking the internet."

In other news, Craig Ferguson is doing a book signing near me sometime soon, and when I saw the poster, I thought of you :-)
