Week of January 26 - 30, 2009

January 30, 2009 - Priorities

I excelled as a Danish consultant.
I believed higher pay was resultant.
But my manager spoke -
I won't fix what ain't broke.
So the raise I received was insultant.

January 29, 2009 - Go away, kid, don't bother me!

When they moved the app to the new server,
I assisted with usual fervor.
But I felt rather leery:
Though posing a query,
They wanted me as an observer.

January 28, 2009 - That's unusual?

In addressing just what his concern is,
I asked questions with ultimate sternness.
Though he gave it his best,
There’s no way he’d have guessed
That a server won’t work in a furnace.

January 27, 2009 - Probably through the dead-letter office

Here’s my story. I think you should hear it.
There’s a store. I no longer go near it.
On one record I spied
That a customer died
And the store was told this by its spirit.

January 26, 2009 - The $6,000 lunch

I enjoyed what employment success is
When our guru used IP addresses.
I replaced them with ease
Saving over 6 G’s,
Thus avoiding some firewall messes.
