Why I hate IT

Friday, May 05, 2006
You know what I particularly dislike about IT? The fact that we get no goddamn appreciation. None. Not even a courtesy pat on the back.

What I'd like to hear on a daily basis:
  • Hey, Burton... thanks for making our internet access work!
  • Hey, Burton... great job on the firewall. Glad you're keeping the baddies out!
  • Hey, Burton... I really appreciate the way I can check my email on a daily basis!
  • Hey, Burton... I love the way our branches can connect over the WAN!
  • Hey, Burton... keep up the good work! I'm glad we didn't have any problems today.
Instead, this is what I do hear:
  • Nothing
  • Nothing
  • Nothing
  • Nothing
  • OH MY GOD IT'S BROKEN! When will you fix it? I don't care what you do, just let me know when it's working.
  • Nothing
Sigh...

Thats because IT to most people is a magical thing living in a place, filled with unicorns and cupcakes.

Sometimes, their magic word box doesnt allow them to send that cute picture of a dressed up kitten to the person in the next cubicle.. and what I ask, WHAT would the world come to if that happened!? Why I'll tell you. Mass anarchy my friend.

So get in there, put on your robe and wizard hat and FIX THE DAMN INTERWEBS. GOD. Quit WHINING. I HAVE TO SEND THIS VITAL KITTEN PHOTO. NOW!!!
