Chilling because this is so widespread that it doesn't really matter what field you're in anymore...this beast might come for you one day, too.

Depressing because nobody with the ability to do so is actually doing anything about it.

Too much magic can be dangerous. M'aiq once had two spells and burned his sweetroll.

Had a moment today where I clawed my keyboard's wrist pad with frustration at stuff going on in a meeting.

Apparently this old thing couldn't handle that, I accidentally shredded its top/covering layer D:

Well that ticket review took two hours, but at least it's done. Time to scurry home in time to plot and plan for the podcast games we're recording on Sat.

I don't necessarily expect the end users to know this until I explain it to them, but putting your urgent acute issue (that has a known temp fix we can do) as a response to an older ongoing ticket where we're trying to find the source is a really good way for me to not see it until hours later. When if they'd filed a new ticket someone would have gotten to it within an hour.

*sigh* Another day where I'm only getting to review older tickets properly now that the day's technically over for the service desk so I can ignore new stuff that's popping up (and everyone's left the office, too).

I can't tell if I can't focus or have too much work. Probably both. Feeling really burned out, but I took three days off the week after next, so I'll at least get some good time off then.

@hafnia American tourist in Montreal goes up to the hotel front desk. “Why is it that when I turn the knob marked C, I get hot water?” “Well, sir, the C stands for chaud, which is the French word for hot.” “Hmm, ok, that makes sense. But why is the othe knob also marked C?” “That C stands for cold, sir. You know, Canada is a bilingual country.”

But seriously, what's your favorite joke? :boost_ok:
