Murder, Death, Kill

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Wednesday, July 16, 2003 at 3:28 pm by flerly.

Hi, I’m wasting time to post, because I’ve done nothing but waste time today…

Every five minutes since I’ve walked in the door, here is the scenario: Enter Jonathan Bohlander, glimpsed first in the rear view mirror, with only seconds to spare until he is plopped into the guest chair behind me. No regard to what I’m doing. No regard to anything other than his issue of the moment, which has consistently been Prudential Alliance Missouri and has consistently been something which either I fixed yesterday and they want changed back or requires something fixed that is out of my hands. In short, the experience goes where I stop everything, open a new browser window, recall their stupid domain name, wait for their site to pull up, enter whatever MLS number he has off the top of his head, and look at some glitch/anomaly on 1 of their 400 listings that they found with their fine toothed comb, agree that, “Yes, that is unusual,” then wait for him to tell me who he should really be bothering to fix the issue, let him walk away, close the window and try to remember what I was doing.

Add to this that when Jason got to work today in Hawaii, he was unable to work because the server he uses to login to our systems is now residing in a box in the back. They took it down this morning. How should he log in? Oh, who knows. They’re still working on that one.

Add to this another customer, who insists on me creating an entire working mockup of their website (including the dynamic bits) to review before they allow me to put things live on their site. They’ve gone through two months worth of mockups and dummy websites, and believe me, we’re not set up to do dummy websites. We don’t have any locations to put mock-functional sites. It’s been a pain going through the tedious process of creating each blank page one at a time using our retarded siteconfg tool, each one taking me several minutes to create and save just as blank pages. Still have to put the content in.

Add to this, The Xahn, aka, Billy, messaging me every hour or so to see if I’m going to be quitting this job to come answer phones for him for minimum wage, and if not, whether I’ll type up all my notes on the months I spent helping develop our new agent product (that got scrapped) so he can use it as a headstart on his own competing agent product.

Add to this that tomorrow I have a freaking Depo shot appointment, which I’m so not looking forward to. Must remember to call doctor and make sure they have the freaking shot in stock this time.


Is it time to go home yet? I want to hit the mall and pick up our wedding pictures. Oh yeah, work got me a nice congratulations card, signed by most all. Now they’re all bugging me about my name change. Who the heck knows how to even go about that business? Only place I’ve changed it so far is with car insurance, to save myself a tidy $122 a term.

    You have to get a second copy of your marriage certificate (also probably a third for the Social Security office)-they all want original copies. You have to call all your credit card or what have you companies and some of them will just do the change and others will require you to fill out forms. You have to go to the SS office in person to have that changed. The DMV is pretty easy, but have a copy of the certificate in case. I didn’t need it.
