no, not today

more from the ‘things I hate’ file…

  • Do not call me and expect that I can drop everything for a major project that you need done today.
  • Do not call me and expect that I can drop everything and do the major project today.
  • Do not KEEP ME OUT OF THE FUCKING LOOP! YOU HAVE TO LET ME KNOW ABOUT WHEN THINGS ARE GETTING DONE SO THAT I CAN PLAN THEM INTO MY SCHEDULE.

You see, most of the projects that I have coming due take a minumum of 2 hours. At least 1 of them requires tools and supplies that I do not carry with me. I need at least 1 FULL days notice when you want to put a hurry up on these projects, not 1 or 2 hours. I just can’t drive home to get these things either unless of course you want to pay for my gas. Oh yea, I’m gonna bill for the round trip travel time too.

And, if you happen to be a contractor that refuses to give solid dates and times when you will be out to complete your portion of the project, then you too are a giant steaming pile of crap.

Probably wouldn’t be so bad if I would have had electricity last night and this morning and could have started my day with a decent cup of coffee. Or maybe if there wasn’t a river of water running through my back yard that required my immediate attention today. Or, quite possibly, if I did not have 40 boxes that are labeled up and ready to be picked up by my friendly local postman today. But then again it could be that I still have to finish configuring the server, including the nightly backup, hooking up the UPS and getting everything put away where it belongs.

Actually, I’d still be pissed. ugh

That is all.
