Catching Up with ESO | esohgee's Blog
Been forever since I posted or so it seems. A lot of nothing has gone on in my life since then.
Christmas went okay with my wife, but only because I was such a bastard to her the previous entire month due to her selfishness last Christmas. That didn't really make me happy. You'd think a calm normal Christmas would do it, but knowing what an asshole I had to be just makes it mean exactly nothing.
My boss restructured the department. Gave me all the good employees and then gave the other project manager my dregs. Yeah, I got rid of one of them. Been nearly my best friend since college, but his work hasn't improved since then and I'm tired of cleaning up his messes. But on the other hand I got 4 of the 6 programmers. So I actually get more stress. Keeping these guys busy and handling the entire legacy system by my self while I have them develop the new one is way more than one dick head like me can handle.
So I alleviate my stress with humor you probably can't appreciate without being a part of our group.
Sk (help desk dude): The accessorial app is going to yahoo now.
I sit across from him so I can coordinate what he does with my group.
Me: That is my app, but E just inherited it (knowing he didn't have his head phones on)
B (my old employee): Heh E, now you know how it works!
E: WHAT! *laughing*
And he thought the other manager was an asshole! Heh
Me (softly to Sk): Just let me know what you need I'll take care of it.
My Boss: *laughing really hard* but doesn't say anything.
He sits across from me. Yesterday I told him I was having a meeting and he wasn't invited cause I was tired of looking at his face across my monitors. Then I told him if he got me a third one that wouldn't be a problem. (half joking)
My Boss to the rest of the room: He has no editor, but I like that.
Heh, if he only knew.
My Boss: We're going to use your new servers for the BI project too.
Me: Ummm yeah *loudly* What are you smoking! Better make changes to all the machines in the cluster so you don't mess things up.
My Boss: I just realized you've been working on this project for 6 months...
I realized that the thing about being responsible at work is that it only earns you more responsibility. I get paid for it, so I guess I shouldn't complain, but there are days I'd just like to be a code monkey again.
