DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?

I was asked to help a very old client out with a Help Desk upgrade.  I said sure, it would be great to go back to my glory days, mingle with the regular folk, get my hands dirty!  Back when I was young, thin(ner) and jetting through airports to install only the most fabulous of Help Desks!

Fast forward to the end of my first 14 hours day, WHAT WAS I THINKING.

A few observations after being away from the office for years:

  1. You people are still in cubes, how did you let this continue after I left.
  2. That manager, who walks around all day and just goes to meetings, IS STILL EMPLOYED!
  3. Lunch at your desk is death by omission.
  4. How do you get anything done with people walking into your office all day to ask you something they KNEW THE ANSWER TO?
  5. Time sheet?  Really, maybe if I were captain caveman. 
  6. Macintosh people, I’m going to just own it and say, I’m very sorry for the way I treated you back in the day.
  7. NO I AM NOT TAKING THE STEPS!
  8. “What’s on Twitter”?
  9. Streaming music hurts the network….what do you people use tin cans and strings?
  10. That magnetic badge that opens doors, evidence the MAN is holding you down….YOU WHITE DEVIL. 

Eleven days and counting, then I’m going back to being paid to be fabulous and a little more humble.
