Our admin doesn't do receptionist work - no phone answering for her. Nevertheless, some broken part of my brain associates AA-type jobs with occasionally having to do the phone answering thing. You know, for the public.

So when the phones are ringing madly for whatever reason, and suddenly she pipes up from across the office with the perky receptionist-greeting-voice:

"City Morgue!"

This visit south couldn't come soon enough. I begin to think I'm going crazy with the scripts I've been stuck writing. This, thankfully, is the last of them, but I sat down to start writing it before I'd really even had coffee this morning, and the comments in it are a leetle bit tweaky.

Admittedly, it's not _that_ far off from my usual mode... )

Workplace moments amuse me.

Our network manager (sharp guy, knows stuff) walks into the UNIX cubefarm. Immediately, three different people point at him and say "I need to talk to you about X". He sits down in a chair, shakes his head and says, "That'll teach me. I just came in here to talk with Janet about riding bikes!"

Hm. On paper it seems sorta like a 'you had to be there' moment.

So, I finally found and read the Chronicles of George. I have a couple of things to say about this:

First, I laugheted my assening off at the whole damnening thing. It was actually an order of magnitude more funny because of the familiarity of the ticketing system - Poly uses Remedy as their workflow manager, so the faux-proximity had me rolling for some reason.

Second, I'd be crying if I'd actually had to deal with those kind of tickets. Even Long, one of the senior admins who Just Doesn't Do English Well, had better ability to communicanate than that.

Third, I'm havening too much fun witht he terriblethings that George does to English.

Fourth, I particularly like the response to this question in the FAQ:

I don't particularly care for the amount of sarcasm and general nastiness displayed on this site!

Shut up. And fuck off. Talk to me at work, where I'm paid to be courteous and agreeable. No one is paying me to be nice on my web site. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.
