Proof that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work at NASA:

Building Management Service Desk Worker: Service desk, how can I help you?
Me: I called earlier this morning about the heat in my office.
BMSDW: What building are you calling from?
Me: Trailer 6
BMSDW: And what room?
Me: 13
BMSDW: Is it still cold in there?

No, I’m calling again because I’m happy as pie that the thermostat seemed to have fixed itself.
No, my teeth always chatter when I’m warm.
No, these bricks of ice I used to call hands accidentally dialled this number.
Yes, you freaking moron. Why else would I be calling?

Me: Uh, yeah. (very sarcastically)
BMSDW: Well, sometimes it takes a while for the temperature to rise.

That’s only if you send guys out to deal with the problem.

Me: The thermostat display is still dim and says ‘replace battery’.
BMSDW: Is says what?
BMSDW: Oh. I’ll check to see the status.

8 AM, and not a good day already…

Posted by barb on Feb 11, 2005 in Random Thoughts

Ugh. I ended up staying up late last night (midnight, which is late for me, since I get up at 5:30 AM) to get a few things finished for today, and now I’m just a walking zombie.

The worst part? I forgot my purse. I work 35 miles, at least a 45 minute drive, from home, so I can’t really go home and get it. I feel so discombobulated without it….
