Grump

hermione - birds
 So far my morning has included:
  • Yelling at two different drivers for being unsafe idiots. One of whom ran a red light as I was crossing. The other of whom honked at a car who had stopped at a stop sign, swerved around said car in order to run the stop sign, turned right and swerved around two "ROAD CLOSED" signs, then detoured into the oncoming lane to get around the heavy machinery and ran the red light to turn right into traffic. "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??" did not begin to cover it, but it's what came out of me at the time. What is it about construction zones that turns people into assholes?
  • Mysterious beeping in my office, which took forever to identify because the odd angle from which it was coming to me made it seem as if it were moving.
  • Identifying mysterious beeping as a UPS with a "change battery" light flashing.
  • Shutting down computer, removing dead UPS (heavy!), and figuring out how to make UPS shut the hell up AFTER IT WAS UNPLUGGED.
  • Rearranging various dusty cables under and behind various dusty places to plug computer, monitor and printer into somewhere else so I could actually start work.
  • Weird painful paper-cut-like thing on my finger, which I don't know how I even got, since I haven't handled any paperwork yet at this point.
  • Stupid message from a client, which is too boring to detail, but the situation is aggravatingly stupid.

I really wish I'd taken the day off. But with so much going on this year, I was trying to conserve vacation days, so that there'll be a minimum of time that I need to take off unpaid.

At least the crows were adorable. Originally posted at http://vixy.dreamwidth.org/788212.html.

That sucks. Is the paper cut from some sharp bit of the UPS?

Crows will make things better.

If all you said was "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??", you can get a full-time job teaching politeness to Canadians! :-)

I trust that you are now in the gentle arms of filking.

Not yet, as my work day ends at 5pm and it's five minutes 'til. But soon. :)

Apparently traffic idiocy's going around.
Yesterday morning some idiot in a Chevy Compensator leaned on his horn at me. Dude, I was in a bright fuckoff yellow jacket and on the edge of the rightmost of two lanes. There was plenty of space.

I hope your day got better after you were safely at Conflikt. I was pleased to see you and give hugs and necklace to you. My life has had far to little Vixy in it due to work and stress and crap hopefully that will change.

Ugh too much stupid for one day.

I hate when clients are excessively dumb and you can't do much about it because they are clients. I've had a few of those recently. I do my best to keep trying to give them the tools to not make the same mistakes but it doesn't often work out.
