05:02 am - Know what I hate?
Know what I really, really hate?

Co-workers who really don't seem to get it. I can write as clear an email as the next person (clearer than most, from my observations at my workplace, anyway), and the fact that some people just. don't. get. it.... That really weirds me out. I mean, are they just speaking some entirely other language from me? Where the TARDIS' telepathic translation program when you need it, huh? Or am I the stupid one?

Also? The level of misunderstanding possible between 5 people trying to switch over into an updated system of handling payment for advertising is--mind-boggling.

And as much as they'd like me to help out, really, what can I do when they won't/can't explain to me how everything works? Data, people; one can only troubleshoot with more data!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And we're still not sure about the former. :-)

Thanks for the hugs. :-)

It's a good thing I can post this stuff--I was sooo frustrated on Tuesday that I actually sorta-punched a wall for the first time in my life. That was moderately painful.

After my last frentic work post, JD surprised me with 3 snarky!Jack icons. I love this one.

Aigh! No, no, no, don't let it get to you. Recite something inspirational and calming, like "I am free as a bird, I rise high in the air, I soar above these wretched conditions, and those who annoy me shall have to wash their cars soon."

Ah feel yo pain, dude. I so feel it. I have had so many similar experiences that a list would not fit in the comment box. So frustrating. Even more frustrating is when people start feeling threatened by one's superior communication skills and start getting belligerent and uncooperative just because one can actually write a complete sentence and conjugate verbs more or less properly the majority of the time. I feel sorry for the people with such poor reading comprehension skills, but the results of said skills (or lack thereof) are such an infuriating waste of time and energy.

Heh. I will stop spewing, now. *deep breaths*

No, no, spewing is good, it gets the yuck out of our systems so it won't poison us completely. :-)
