Yet another example of why I hate mornings...

I was going to check my bank balance this morning before Sandybear came for work. Of course, I wasn't able to. Damn that Murphy. I had internet last night....until Jenni wanted on. Then it died. So, this morning, I take a look. The ethernet option in my ip configuration has somehow been removed...I have aohell options, which don't particularly work with my cable modem. *sigh* But, it doesn't stop there...oh, no...Murphy has decided to have fun this morning.
I get to work, and first thing, I have to call the help desk. One of our databased updated..but, did it update on my machine? Oh, no. Why would it? This is me, after all. So, 10 minutes and one restart later, I'm good to go...or so I think. I'm doin' my thing...and all of a sudden, nothing responds. *sigh* Time to restart...again. Well, its still not working right...so, yet again, I restart..only to go tell my supe (after I've been on wrap up for 10 minutes and he's already come over to check on me) that my computer is not working properly. He comes over, messes with it, restarts it twice...for a total of 5 times now, and gets the damn thing working.
Naturally, *now* I have 25 people in queue. Just..spiffy. The second call I answer, a justifiably upset customer who is being charged for dsl he doesn't have. I just hate that he takes it out on me.
That headache I had yesterday is making a return visit..and its brought a hammer.

I may have to read this sometime...

Which Classic Book Are You?
Book: Lady Murasaki Shikibu's The Tale of Genji.
Synopsis: Widely acknowledged as the world's first novel, this astonishingly lovely book was written by a court lady in Heian Japan and offers a window into that formal, mannered world. Genji, a man of passionate impulses and a lover of beauty, is the favorite son of the Emperor, though his position at court is not entirely stable. He follows his wayward longings through moonlight-soaked gardens and jeweled pavilions, with mysterious women such as the Lady of the Orange Blossoms, the Akashi lady, and his own father's Empress.
Excerpt: Next day Genji wrote a note to Tamakatsura in which he said: 'How did you get on yesterday? Were you able to see the procession properly? I am sure that, if you were, you now take a very different view about my recent proposal...' She was at first amused by the notion that a fleeting glimpse through the window of a palanquin could have altered her decision about serving at the Palace. But after a moment's reflection she realized that this was precisely what had happened. How clever he always was at guessing what went on in other people's heads!

what the fuck?

Okay, this annoyed me enough that I must bitch. Lucky people.

I get a customer on the phone - he tells me that he has 2 phones, one with me and one on hold with tech. He needs to make sure his account is okay because he's not able to get online. Well, lo and behold, he can't verify the account - and he wants his pw. I can't give it to him. I tell him that tech may be able to help him trouble shoot. Tech, in this time, has answered the other phone he has. He puts me on hold, but I can still hear him with the tech agent. He tells the tech agent that he can't verify the account but that he needs his password. The tech agent, in his infinite wisdom gives said customer his password. *blinkblink* Uhm...hello??? SECURITY???? He even TOLD you he couldn't verify the account!!!
You sure I can't just bitch slap the reps as an 'error form'? Please?

Car...

Well, okay, I had to ask for Monday off. Have to take the car in. Nothing serious, thankfully. Just an oil change..and getting the rear view mirror tacked back onto the window. Its not self adhesive...of course. The dealership told me that it would take most of the day on monday *sigh* Personal day down the drain....but, its alright I suppose. I'll get the maintenance done..and hopefully be able to spend the day with Tyr.
