It is a well known fact that I hired the woman that many people do not like in my office. The reason this fact is so well known is because a) everyone reminds me of this at least once a day and 2) I apologize for doing it at least once a day. In my defense…well, shit…I have no defense. I did it…there, are you happy?
Anyway, I was in a friend’s office discussing an issue I had with one of our more troublesome VPs. He’s one of those, “You know, this isn’t working right and it’s never worked right” kinda guys. Invariably, he is usually not doing something right, which causes the computer to ‘not work right’. That was the case today. He couldn’t connect to our internal network via VPN so there must be something wrong with his new laptop. Guess what? He’d used the wrong password 3 times in a row and locked his account. The laptop? Working as designed. Douche bag.
Sorry…drifted there for a minute…So, as I was leaving my buddy’s office I said, “Well, at least I didn’t hire him.” And walked right into the woman I did hire. Yep, almost knocked her over, the laughter echoing from my buddy’s office.
Needless to say, I did get a kick out of it…and will be lying low the next few days. If I mysteriously disappear, please share this with the local authorities.
