RE: Today


Today has been fired. It has been given its' pink slip, and been escorted from the building by security. Its' computer has been seized, and its' keycard has been voided. All current employees are advised that no further business-related contact is allowed with Today under any circumstances; failure to adhere to this policy may incur disiplinary action up to and including termination.

BONUS QUESTION #1: How many e-mails, phone calls, voicemails, work orders and in-person conversations does it take to convince Maintenance that the door lock is actually broken? 13, apparently.

BONUS QUESTION #2: How many Maintenance employees does it take to actually fix that lock? 6, apparently.

BONUS QUESTION #3: How much of my day needs to spent dealing with this BS? All of it, apparently.

No kidding about today. I went all day absolutely completely totally dead sure convinced it was Wednesday.

The problem? I have an appointment on Thursday, that is I HAD an appointment TODAY. Which means I totally blew off my doctor. It's not like I forgot it, either; I had "tomorrow's" plans all set to work around that appointment.

DAMN.

Oh no!! I see by the date on your post that your 'Today' that you have fired is actually YESTERDAY. Oh fuck me. I can't even get *that* straight! ARRRRRRGGGHHHH

No, you were right the first time - it was today, Thursday, the 23rd. I think you still think it's Wednesday! Or now you think it's Friday? LOL! :D

It's because I squeaked in my comment after midnight at whatever the Hel time zone UTC is supposed to be, and so thought the 24th was Thursday, today. Which was 8:26pm my time.

THIS ISN'T HELPING.

You know what it is, it's that I'm a freelance artist and don't have a set schedule. That and I don't watch any TV any more, so I don't even have to know what day such and such program is on. Ai.

Hee!

Hey, we're going to be driving to Vermont over Halloween weekend and are thinking of swinging by to see Corey & Kevin's store. Wanna meet up there? :)

Security found sensitive documents and disturbing images and video of activities involving office equipment and genitals on Today's computer. Be advised to wash your hands after handling the copy machine. and i think you should burn your stapler. The keyboard on the main interface in the library will be nuked from orbit to be sure

All sticky residue should be reported to your supervisor immediately.

At least it only took one day....It takes me months or even years to get anything fixed where I work....

Well this was *after* three weeks of said e-mails, phone calls, voicemails, work orders and in-person conversations. :)
