It’s just one of those days
When ya don’t wanna wake up
Everything is fucked, everybody sucks.
You really don’t know why
But you wanna justify rippin someone’s head off
No human contact
And if you interact your life is on contract
Your best bet is to stay away motherfucker!
It’s just one of those days!

[11:21] Kim Johnson: jesus fucking christ.. i swear. give me a damn gun. sarah stein. oh mah gawd. oh mah gawd. i’m going to damn kill her. it just needs to be DONE.
[11:22] Kim Johnson: GRRRRRRARGHHHH….
[11:22] Jason Churchill: what?
[11:25] Kim Johnson: i’m just going to kill her.
[11:25] Kim Johnson: the explanation of why would take too long.
[11:25] Kim Johnson: she is a waste of space.
[11:26] Jason Churchill: i can’t hear her talking though, so you must esplain what is up?
[11:26] Kim Johnson: she’s emailing me
[11:28] Kim Johnson: she has a customer that needs their new website graphics LIVE today… i am doing her a favor by last minute DOING this today for her, but on top of THAT favor which i’ve told her is barely squeezing into my schedule.. she is asking for major revisions to the mockup and saying.. can you DO that real quick, i’ll send it to them and we’ll get approval before you put it live? i’m like.. WOMAN the graphics were APPROVED already, THIS is what is going live, i am not making changes… but i already caved and made ONE change and TOLD her what a pain the ass it was.. and now she is sending me more. GET A FUCKING CLUE
[11:30] Kim Johnson: so i write back.. NO, i am NOT doing more revisons AND putting the thing live.. one or the other. So she’s like.. okay.. put it live, it needs to be live.. Oh, but can you just change all the blues to a shade darker before you do it? Oh sure.. i’ll just redo all the fucking graphics to change the color blue everywhere because that’s something OTHER than a REVISION which i told you i was NOT going to do
[11:31] Kim Johnson: so.. in essense i want to beat her skull in until i make a hole large enough for my meaning to penetrate
[11:32] Jason Churchill: just lob off her head, that should create a fairly large hole.
[11:33] Kim Johnson: i mean seriously.. am i overreacting or is she not the dumbest person on the planet?

Give me something to break!


[12:55] Kim Johnson: fuck a fucking duck that @#&$^@%$ just sent me another fucking revision to do… this time she emailed her idea to the customer to get his opinion on whether it needed to be done before it went live and sent me HIS request for the change.. AFTER I TOLD her not to talk to the fucking customer again until it WENT live because he has already given FINAL approval 5 times.
[12:55] Kim Johnson: do we KNOW the meaning of FINAL approval?
[12:55] Kim Johnson: i’m going to rips her fucking lips off

    Heh.. I go through this everyday. We have a formal system for spec changes to the various software apps. What people do is fill the thing out with something simple on the spec sheet (“Change the submit button to blue”). Then, over email, they will be like “oh yeah, also it needs to sync the database, upload customer data, and we need 30 new data entry screens and 40 new reports. tomorrow.”

    I have found that a manical laugh followed by a stern FUCK YOU seems to let customers know you have no intention of processing last-minute revisions.
