Computer Moose

Another Day Chained to the Computer at Work

Email I wish I could send to someone else in major defense contractor:

Dear User:

Using multiple exclamation points (!!!), question marks (???) and ALL CAPS won''t make me treat your computer/software request any more urgently than the 20-30 others I handle during the course of the day. In fact, it might just cause me to put it aside for an extra hour or two while I assist someone else with their much more reasonable request.

If it helps any, there are plenty of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.

No Love,

Back to the grind.
