March 31, 2010 - If you've gotta ask, you can't afford it

There’s reporting and we need to track it.
But our CIO simply won’t back it.
“There’s some risk? I say no!”
I’m sure this CIO
Surfs the web while he wears a life jacket.

March 30, 2010 - Sometimes it really ISN'T your job

Having fun was our ultimate goal
When we went to the alley to bowl.
But a name entry foul
Made the boss start to growl
Before anyone took their first roll.

“I can fix it, since I’m on the ball!”
Said our manager, making the call.
All his poking and typing
Left keglers all griping.
Their systems all crashed, I recall.

From the staff, we received a stern stare
Since their bowlers had much time to spare.
There were some that were pleased
When the tension was eased
By the drinks from the bar that was there.

We were told we should go take a hike
Since this down-time, they really don’t like.
Our next outing? I’ll say
I will be far away
The next time that our manager strikes.

March 29, 2010 - You just have to say it the right way

I’ve fixed PC’s for all of my life.
Once a user was causing some strife.
“Yes, those files are needed.”
My words, she then heeded.
“Oh, say! Aren’t you Jean-Claude’s new wife?”
