[b]Oh yea, it's gonna be a full moon alright![/b] So the fat bitch of a secretary upstairs calls my office a few minutes ago to complain to me that she can't access a file on the CAD bitch's computer... I looked out on the network and CAD didn't show up, so I asked if Missie ([i]the CAD bitch[/i]) was still here. Nancy ([i]fat secretary bitch[/i]) informs me that they are both at her desk upstairs trying to pull a file from the CAD PC. I told her it looked as if it was turned off, and she informed me that [b]YES, they did power it down... SO NOBODY ELSE COULD TIE UP THE SHARED ACCESS WHILE THEY RETRIEVED THE FILE![/b] Now, when I politely informed her ([i]while holding back tears[/i]) that the computer [u]MUST[/u] be turned on, she got argumentative with me, and insisted that they were doing this properly. What she didn't know, is that she was on the speaker phone and Grin_N_Barrett's twin was sitting here laughing his ass off with me... I tried to tell her that I had a backup of the particular file on my PC and could shoot it up to her instantly, but she was being to much of a bitch and yelling at me because the network wasn't workng. She got really pissed when I told her it's like watching your favorite program on NBC, while your TV is unplugged! [:D] I've heard the "customer service" horror stories about these unbelievable tales of stupidity over the years, but I never actually thought they were real. So I say it again: [b]Oh yea, it's gonna be a full moon alright![/b] [blue]* And to think some of you wonder why I fly off the handle sometimes, well if this isn't an example of a typical day at the office, I don't know what is.[/blue]

The sad thing is she still thinks she's right. I was up in main office & just heard her side of it. She was REAL pissed off at the TV analogy that went right over her head!

Yup, this is why I got out of field service. One call I went on the guy was complaining that his computer was spontainiously rebooting (this was in the oooooold days of Radio Shack Model I's). I drove an hour (each way) worked on it an hour and couldn't get it to fail for me... called him over and told him so... and here's where we pick up the story... Him, setting his coffee mug on the table: "funny, it always does it when I do this" as he proceeds to pound on the table so hard the coffee cup was doing a dance at least an inch in the air! Me: "I don't think it's designed to take that much vibration" Me in the car: "AAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!" all the way back to the shop! Talk about "doctor, doctor it hurts when I do this!" Ah, but GB, we developers have our own brand of inquisitive idiots to deal with, don't we?

'cept developers (Ones that aren't ex-admins) are the absolute worst, how can someone who writes software not know how the hell to use a computer?!?!? I'm glad I don't do desktops anymore...
