Long Night

Well, what I was talking about didn't happen, we bailed. What was going on was that they were giving away 200 AMD XP motherboards and chips, in an effort to get them out on the market and prove how they kicked ass. Well, needless to say, Eric, Steph, and I were bound and determined to be there, even if it was at 6am.

We made our plans to get up early, pick up Chip, and head downtown...and then discovered that it would be drawn names, not first to show. Eww. Also, none one of us made it to bed very early, so when 4am rolled around, we were all dead to the world, and it took one minute worth of thought to agree that it wasn't THAT worth it or necessary, and retired to our respective bedrooms.

Christ, i had the weirdest dreams between 4 and 8:30. But, the headache I went to bed with and woke up with was finally gone, so that was good. I'm so fucking broke, I can't wait for payday Monday. And so, here I am, getting ready to spend another day as a galley slave.

Oh, one last thing...rayce? You may not know it, but you made my entire evening. ;)

Cripes...

Is it so hard to understand? I wouldn't think so, but everyday I have a few more examples of the decline of American Intelligence. Everyday, i find a few more reasons to hate this country, and these people. EVeryday, my faith in basic functions, politeness, and smarts slips a little further away.

For instance, this guy I just dealt with bitched about the fact that he had sent us 2 different checks, and we hadn't posted them to the account. I offered to research those checks and get back to him. he had the gall to get mad that he might have to wait ANOTHER 5 MINUTES, and then to bitch to me about how it was bad business that a 'huge company our size' could lose a check. Hello? The bigger we are, the MORE likely we are to lose one check. And frankly, we hate dealing with checks, it's a serious pain in the ass. We deal in credit cards, debit cards, direct bank drafts, etc. What's the bad business? It's continuing to accept checks from ancient bastards like this schmoe.

Oh, and dare i forget, this guy was my 'threatening legal action' idiot for the week. According to him, if we cancel this account for non-payment, he's gonna get a lawyer. Dude, go for it. And then, he says he'll go ahead and hang up, and I can go 'do my little research thingy, ro whatever I need to do', and hangs up. Gee, I suddenly forgot what i was doing, guess I won't bother...

Be nice to your service personnel on the phone. We hate it when you are a bitch, and we have the power to fuck things up worse. Make us smile, and we'll take care of you.

Little Things In Life

Someone who used to work here, but is leaving (in fact I'd thought he'd gone, but he must have come up to see someone), just stopped by my desk and offered me one of his chocolate-covered pretzels.

And you know what? It was DAMN good.

Thanks, Bill.

Clarification

I worded part of that survey badly...I just meant who would you defend, no matter what, not who you'd die for. Hell, I wouldn't DIE for any of them...my "I'll-take-a-bullet-for-you" list is extremely short.

Oh well, no biggie.

This Isn't REALLY Funny....

...and I'm sure someone will give me shit for it, but I just heard a rumour that the guy that won 'Murder In Small Town X' was one of the firefighters who died in the building collapse of September 11th.

Lady Eris is an ironic bitch. Goddess, I love you so....
