Default Bad day for my pet peeve...

...bad week, really. I've been in IT for over a decade now, and if there's one thing I can call out as a distinct pet peeve, it's people that do not read.

The helpdesk does not read our notes.

The users do not read directions.

Nobody bloody reads the emails we send them.

I know by now it's fruitless to complain. And yet, here I am. C'mon, people....

Strange, it looks like there should be a post but it's just blank space...

One of my coworkers just threw a fit tonight--justifiably so--because a customer wanted to know why his account was credited. There were no notes to explain it. I admit I am not the best at noting things. I'm better at fixing them than documenting the fixes. I'm working on it.

RealUnimportant, Rosco the Iroc... I don't know if we're helping I suspect we're Rascals...

"Rascal is the dog and he ain't too bright.
Me and Rascal were sitting on the couch last night,
When my woman came in and she started to cry.
She looked at us with such terror in her eyes."

"She says, 'I raised these children for eighteen years
And now they're both growing up and moving out of here,
And my big reward for all that I've been through,
Is this dog as dumb as mud,
This dog as dumb as mud,
This dog as dumb as mud and you.' "

dalesys: Sadly aliteracy is an all too common affliction with no known cure. The best treatment is 25ml of your favourite spirit, taken repeatedly as required (once your workday is over, preferably!)
