I wasn’t even in work for an hour when I was ready to go back home. The day had started out crappy already with a jetlagged husband that didn’t want to get up, nothing in the fridge that would pass as breakfast and a litter box filled with turds so big you’d think we gave shelter to a pair of Siberian tigers and not a pair of tame cats.
I was willing to give this day a chance but my hopes were thwarted when I came into the office, put my laptop into its docking station and then watched it do N O T H I N G. Fearing a lengthy call with the remote IT guys, during which I would have to tell them that yes, I did check that the power cord was plugged in and that no, since the computer won’t boot it was NOT possible for them to remote connect to my laptop, I went to grab a coffee from the machine and pressed hot chocolate.
Just what I need in an office the size of a medium kitchen with an average temperature of 80° F because it is harboring 8 geeks with at least 16 workstations that run around the clock.
Anyway, I’m home now, sitting on the couch, waiting for the new episodes of my favorite tv show to start and saying oooommmm, hoping for a better day tomorrow.
