Things you wish you could say (at work)


#2530

That makes me wonder how @TSB and @Nick_Burns are doing…


#2531

Busy at work or hanging out in {gasp!} FB now. :expressionless:


#2532

Oh, there’s a problem? Please show me the troubleshooting steps you’ve completed before you came to me.


#2533

Tribbleshooting steps :

  1. Start up PC
  2. PC won’t start up.
  3. Kick it.
  4. Try again.
  5. Ask Rizak.
  6. Rizak switches it ON at the wall plug.

This report is just like this the one for ticket 12345

Narrator: It wasn’t


#2535

In the past 15 seconds, you:

  1. Sent me an email with just a query in it
  2. Walked to my desk
  3. Interrupted my current task to tell me not to do anything with the email until I talk to you
  4. Told me that it’s not urgent

#2536

Then treat is as non urgent. Delete it by accident, then?


#2537

Thanks for not telling me the meeting was at 2 PM Eastern, not Pacific. Now I get to look stupid because I was still sitting at my desk at 11.


#2538

Drive by Meep Meep!!!


#2539

I had a tech at a Large Network Vendor somehow get an request for a meeting at 11:00 AM Central, which was translated to 7:00 PM Eastern. I don’t think that’s how this is supposed to work.


#2540

That’s my line! :wink:


#2541

I thought yours was Beep beep zip, bang!


#2542

Events transpired in the afternoon which resulted in that request falling below the bottom of my queue.


#2543

All of my coworkers are respectful of other people’s time and show up before their shifts starts. The doctors here all set a good example for the staff and are sure to show up and be ready for work before appointments start. Rarely are they 15-20 minutes late. And the owner sets the best example of all.


#2544

So long as at least one of those events was a particularly satisfying snack or beverage, then all is right with the world.


#2545

A big hearty “fsck you” for making me look like a blithering idiot.

By asking me, on the eve of your training, to hook your laptop up to the projector.

Once done, then you tole me you need Internet access for your work.

Guess what? Next time I’m going to “be very busy unfortunately”.

You could’ve asked me to do all this 30 minutes prior and we could’ve saved ourselves the embarassment.

So stuff you and your preciouses training, you started 45 minutes later than planned.


#2546

We refer to the noises my dog makes while asleep as ‘meeping’. It’s really the best term, as it’s no really a bark but more of a high-pitched noise. Almost like something a guinea pig would do.He has aded occasional growls to it, though, so it’s kind of a “meep, meep, meep. GRRRRR! meep.”


#2547

All right, which one of you numpties installed WSUS on a DC, and brought down a cluster?

Meh.


#2548

8 machines migrated from Win 7 to Win10 last night. The disk encryption is b0rked on 6 of them and the only reason the other two aren’t is because they’re desktops and those don’t get encrypted. Seems my hypothesis about not enough testing was correct.


#2549

It could be me…it could be my evil twin. I’m not saying! But if it leaves chaos in its wake then it’s probably me.
