February 5, 2010 - Credit where it's ... don't

I keep getting an engineer’s mail
All because of one simple detail.
We both share a last name.
So on what is the blame?
In a sort, my first name will prevail.

So one day, I received a nice note
Thanking all for removing the bloat
From a process so major.
But I sure would wager
It’s thanks to me were quite remote.

I replied to them all but the sender
Telling them of my work with great splendor.
“I worked many a night
So the process was right!”
But in fact I was just a pretender.

When the manager saw this, he said
“Yes, this guy should be earning more bread!”
I then said to my super
That I was a duper.
I thought that I soon would be dead.

Yes, I thought that’s the end of my days
At the firm for receiving false praise.
He replied “You daft bloke!
We all know it’s a joke!”
“I’m not fired? Can I still get that raise?”

February 4, 2010 - Yes, that one too

In supporting my users, I’m tireless.
For peripherals, most will require less
Than a USB hub.
But, my friend, here’s the rub.
As of yet, they don’t make one that’s wireless.

February 3, 2010 - Sometimes you've just gotta keep asking

“It’s deleted!” the user remarked.
So recovering it, I embarked.
“I will try to appease ya.”
Since he’s got amnesia
For names like a Griswold named Clark.

February 2, 2010 - Why doesn't somebody TELL us these things?

“It’s now working!” I told my boss, beamin’.
But a neighbor said, “You must be dreamin’!”
He believed I had tripped
‘Til he saw that my script
That pulled demons from daemons was screamin’.

February 1, 2010 - Sometimes you just have to wait until they're ready

When I tried to help fix what was wrong,
I was told that I didn’t belong.
She believed she was right
And it was quite a sight -
Just like JIM THE BOSS wearing a thong.
