You know what sucks?

When someone steals your boyfriend's debit card number and uses it to drop $1,500 in San Francisco. Eight days before you're supposed to move.

Quit poking your nose in!

I hate when people send useless emails about things that have no concern to them.

You're copied on that email because the person who sent it is a lazy ass who didn't want to spend an extra 0:30 seconds trying to figure out who to go to, and sent it to everyone he could think of instead.

Obviously, that promo is being scheduled. Obviously, it's not being delivered and then sitting around. If you weren't responsible for it in the past, what makes you think that you suddenly have to waste valuable time annoying the crap out of me for something that has nothing to do with you?

Fuck off, people. Do your jobs, and stay out of mine!

Excuse me, lady?

Just because you don't like the parking spot that has been assigned to you, it's not cool to park in our spots. See, our spots are "first come, first serve." And there are four spots that seven people get to take their shot at getting. So, you taking one of those, instead of your own? This is not really ok.

Also, you would argue that one of us can just have your spot. Only our security? They don't like when we do that. In fact, we've all received emails that specifically tell us we're ONLY allowed to park in our four spots.

So please. Park in your spot, even if the tree gets stuff on your car. Because it's yours. It has your name on it. It's nicely in the shade. And then? We won't shake our fists at you as you walk away.

Thursday, July 10, 2008, why do you hate me?

I have my comment settings set up so that I should be receiving an email when I am left comments. I like getting comments, and I like knowing that I got comments.

But guess what I'm not getting? Comment notificiations!

I shake my fist at you, Blogger!!!

I have tried researching the problem, and see that it's not just me. On the Blogger Help "Known Issues" page, I found this entry that says "Some comment notification emails are not being sent. We are investigating this issue. Update, 12/6: This has been fixed. — latest update on Thursday, December 06, 2007" Well, it may have been fixed, but it's back again!

Then I looked on the Blogger Help Group pages. And I found several posts about this issue. One of the things they say to try is changing your email to a different host. So, I switched mine from my Hotmail to my Yahoo. This **seems** to be working, but the issue is still making me mad!!!!!!

Why did it stop working in the first place!? Grrrr. And argh.

**Update: Hmm. Maybe the title of this post should have been "Hotmail, why do you hate me?"**

American public education fails again...

This morning I was copied on an email from a co-worker to a client we work with often, and it literally made me cringe. We're super busy and overworked, so I'm going use that as an excuse for this email. But honestly, there needs to be some sort of course kids take in high school to teach them how to use correct grammar in a work environment.

From the email I received:

"The log for Monday (7/14) is being a work on and completed today..."

"There are no instructions that have been fax over in regards to the spots..."

Little mistakes, but still. They went to a client, and we should be at the point where we review emails before we send them.

Hi, co-worker, me again.

I understand that you have a busy schedule - with small companies, everyone does. However, leaving a third of a cup of coffee in the coffee pot is still a largely frowned-upon, dick move.

If you want to finish the pot and not make a new one, fine. That's rude in itself, but sort of understandable. But leaving just enough to tease someone into thinking they're getting a cup of coffee is just plain mean.

Thanks a lot, ass.
