Fucking tinnitus! The ringing in my ears has driven me near insane at time. Naturally, some would wonder how I could tell the difference.

Now I read that actor William Shatner suffers from tinnitus, once even considered suicide to end the incessant noise in his ears. Then he got tinnitus refraining therapy, retraining his brain to ignore the ringing. I need to look into that.

I sent out instructions on how to report business for Ribicoff compliance (won't explain that, it's boring and unnecessary), including the following: "No action is required by your groups for question 2 and 3 except for any business for which [my contracts group] has not provided contract support."

How the fuck do I answer this e-mail from a guy who completely outranks me and keep my job? "Are your [sic] aware of any [said dude's] business which would fit this description ... I am trying to verify whether I can instruct our offices that they only need respond to question 1 and can neglect 2 & 3."

NO, dumbass, if I were aware of what your fucking group was doing that we're NOT supporting, I wouldn't have to ask you to include it. I mentioned that because YOU would know that infinitely better than I would, because we wouldn't have had anything to do with it. The whole point of the question is to find out if we missed anything, and you want to know if I am aware of anything we're not aware of? Fucking moron.

Attention, online services. Do not, repeat, DO NOT use a client's email address as her account identifier. This may come as a complete fucking shock to you but email addresses change. I know, huh!

I was trying to log in to manage my account, drop some services and beef up others. But your system suddenly doesn't know me, under either email address. I have followed the instructions for resetting my password (yes, under the old email address) and it still doesn't know me.

I tried calling the 800 number but what a fucking joke! After I jumped through all the hoops--phone number, ZIP code, fucking say my menu choices instead of punching in a number; ARG!--I'm put on hold for ten minutes until I hang up in disgust.

Now I'm considering canceling your services altogether. I don't need your dumb shit but you, if you're going to stay solvent, need my business. Don't y'all know there's a recession going on?!

:rant:

Fuckers!

Fuck daylight saving time, and not because I lost an hours sleep.

Every time the switch comes around we have to spend several days updating remote thin client devices, devices that are supposed to be patched before they leave the warehouse. The number of devices that we have to update are getting less each year, but FFS we've had what 3 years? of Bush's special DST and still not all of our devices are updated.

Holy Fuck. Just checked inventory records and devices we bought last year still have not been patched. I would have hoped the fucking vendor, HP yeah fat chance, would have patched their own product before selling it.

Fuckers. :whup:

Upon further review perhaps drinking that much whiskey on a Monday night, even though it was a Pogues gig, was not advisable. Fuck.

Oh yes. Shane was obviously drunk the whole time and would stagger off behind a curtain for certain songs. Most of them were later ones, but he did do it during 'Thousands Are Sailing'. Spider Stacy sang when Shane was off stage and did a great job, despite not being the 'original' singer.

The crowd was very into it and the band came back for two encores, probably planned of course.

You stupid mother fucker. You lame ass incompetent piece of shit. If I could slap you with a removed glove and insult your ancestry I would. You've bothered me and my supervisor to get you some data all fucking day - nevermind that I've got actual real shit to do before I can start digging through papers and databases to find you a specific range of dates. Fine, whatever. Here's your fucking data now piss off.

I woke up this morning with some sort of nasty stomach bug. I am shooting massive amounts of water and waste material out of both ends. Also I have a headache and extreme abdominal pain. I can't keep anything down, not even tylenol. Hooray! The irony is that I actually had a doc appointment this morning (well woman visit) and I had to cancel it cuz there was no way I was even going to be able to haul my ass to the car, much less across town to the clinic. That'll learn me to skip the flu shot.

I've been at it for 10 hours now. When I had this in the past, it lasted for the traditional 24, but this time is not nearly as bad so here's hoping that gets cut short. All I want to do is sleep, but I can't grab more than about 30 minutes of shuteye at a time before the pain or the need to poop wakes me up, and the minutes I get are pretty listless anyway.

This is cheering me up:


I wish I could find a version without the background noises. They played it over the credits, but I think it was just the first verse.

Ah, yes. Fever fits. Everything is funneh!

I think I got my look at the future. I drove across the metro area to pick up my last set of chicks this morning. I stopped and picked up some breakfast and after, while pulling out of the shopping center lot onto the public thoroughfare, the driver ahead of me was weaving all over the exit lane. I slowed and watched for what might be a medical problem...I didn't know, as the driving was pretty extreme, except for speed. It finally pulled out onto the street and turned right, continuing the wild weaving across two lanes now. I had to turn right as well but kept well back...

Finally, the car seemed to pull to the side of the road and came to rest with one front tire against the curb. I carefully passed the car, only to see the driver...female...totally absorbed in the item she held in her hand...while she feverishly keyed in some kind of message...seemed to read...and then began keying again.

I think I've just witnessed my first driver text messaging.

Just how stupid does a citizen have to be before they deny them a driver's license?

15 hours and I'm still at it. At this point, the sweet release of death would be welcome.

BRAT= Bananas, Rice, Apple and toast, is a good diet to plug yourself up once you can choke something down.

Around here, that's

"This would be a great job, if it weren't for the demanding damned patrons."
I had another fine example of our stupidwonderful users this morning.

3/12 -- I email this fellow some simple instructions on how to resolve his problem. No answer back.
3/13 -- I leave voicemail. No return call.
Today I send him another email asking him if the instructions I sent earlier resolved the issue, as as this is the 3rd attempt at contact I close his ticket as per SOP.

Not 5 minutes after this ticket closes he calls the service desk back, not me despite the fact that my direct number is in my signature. So he's been receiving my messages, just ignoring them. His only saving grace was that he apparently was not an asshole, just wanted to note that the problem has not been resolved.

Hey buddy, how about you reply directly to any of the 3 notices I gave you rather than bother the service desk again. :fuming:
