got my eye on you

A Couple Bits of Random Shit...

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness catagory:

I was informed this morning, "That someone, either you (meaning me) oralleycat2681  had left the freezer door ajar." 
Sluggin' it in on the Katy Freeway catagory:

Got a late start out the door this morning. Caught a ride with some dude in a late model Acura. For once i sat in the back seat and was grateful. The driver is a "Private Banker" and he spent the entire drive time into town talking...About himself... Full of shit himself, he was. Apparently his clients are a bunch of attorneys. Ewwe...

After about 15 10 5 minutes of this, I withdrew into the wonderful tones of Allison Krause and stuck my nose into the latest copy of Wired Magazine. So happy I discovered Ms. Krause...I mean I'd heard of her (I don't live in a cave, after all!) but never really gave her a listen until I picked up the soundtrack for "O Brother Where Art Thou".

If I hadn't met one a couple of years ago here in the building, I wouldn't have given private bankers much thought. Pretty much a waste of neurons. For. Me.

People That Make My Ass Hurt!

 Got caught between an irate Canadian (How often does that happn?), a Puerto Rican Finance Manager, and My Asian Overlord...

Without going into too much detail, let's just say any progress I've made today was derailed by a forty-five minute (!) telephone conversation with the Calgarican.  

Followed very closely by another half hour conversation with a very loud Manager from Puerto Rico. While I explained how access setups work. THREE times. She wasn't angry, but needed to HEAR the information I had previously sent her in an email.

Then another email from the Canadian's boss, making it sound like the account deletions for thier 3 High School slaves was my fault. It wasn't...

Followed this up with a call to the boss, who caved and okayed the step out for the Canadian HS slaves students.

*sigh* Gonna be another late night.
