suddenly over the last 2 days it went from early summer to late winter temperature wise, but other than that, today is gorgeous... breezy and beautifully sunny... and i'm in a much better mood today cause i get to go out tonight... drinks with friends and my favorite bartender plus dancing always improves my mood... work still sucks, but such is life, working 9 hours today so i can leave early tomorrow and start my busy weekend
earlier decent mood slowly withering away as i sit here at work... damn... i am still looking forward to going out tonight and this weekend, but why do i let work get me down? i have a job, i get paid fairly well, i like most of my co-workers, my direct boss is pretty cool... yet i am not happy these days about work... thankfully the rest of my life is good or i might go nuts
so i just had a co-worker ask me so many stupid questions that i stopped answering and referred him to the reference materials he's had for a month but never bothered to read... this is getting ridiculous and very frustrating!! he tells me he can't ping the customer equipment, but he hasn't even checked to see if the port is built on our router... it wasn't... needless to say, that is not the only problem with the circuit, but how stupid are you that you don't check to see if the customer's line exists on our router? and earlier today i was training with a new co-worker on some of the new tools we're getting, she was re-locating a customer and when he couldn't get out all she could think of was to sit in the router on our side of the line and keep pinging him... after about 10 mins of this, i finally said why don't you get out of our network and see if you can get to him from the real world (ie: the rest of the internet)... that will give us an idea of where the traffic is getting lost... her response was "real world?" how do i do that? this girl has been an internet tech for over 2 years now, and she doesn't know enough to run a test from outside our network? i am so fucking tired of incompetent, idiotic co-workers... if this keeps up, i'm going to change departments or something... end of rant... 1/2 an hour and then i can change and head to the club... yippee!!
