August 14, 2009 - For once, credit where it's due

When we ran every Friday report,
I could see that they needed support.
So I asked with persistence,
I got no resistance
And now the job run time is short.

“It’s a miracle!” so my boss blurts.
Here’s your bonus!” I hope HR hurts!
Thirty years have gone by,
And today, it’s no lie
That in two weeks the fish won two shirts.

August 13, 2009 - Priorities

The third rep for our ticketing system
Makes it look like we ran up and kissed ‘im.
The first rep is a ghost,
But the one I like most
Dressed like crap, so the others resist ‘im.

August 12, 2009 - IT? Easy. VP? Not so much.

As the lifeguard, while watching the pool
Of our modems, I kept oh, so cool.
A veep’s Caps Lock was key,
So I said, “Just like me!”
So he wouldn’t come off as a fool.

August 11, 2009 - It's all in how you add it up

“While my NYC techie’s away,
Can a fulltime temp come in?” I say.
“To keep budgeting tidy,
On every third Friday
He could work an eight hour day.”

August 10, 2009 - See, the guy who normally checks that was out sick...

Many patients have called to complain,
“Confirmations don’t come! Please explain!”
ISP’s think they’re spam,
Just a marketing scam,
Since they’re sent from a phony domain.
