January 3 - 7, 2011

January 7, 2011 - Sometimes it just explains itself

We received a severe admonition
From a boss ‘bout an OS transition.
“Excel’s been used here
For twenty-plus years.”
Was her job once a Lotus position?

January 6, 2011 - What's the hurry?

Once, while running a job for a guy,
What I did made the job go awry.
When he got his deck back,
I did not get much flack.
He just kept droning on to me, "WHY?"

It was strange, I am sure you'd agree,
That revenge would be sweet, can't you see?
"I'm sure glad," I did sigh
That the guy did not try
To hit me with a stick in the knee.

On this day in history: 1994 - Nancy Kerrigan gets hit in the knee at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

January 5, 2011 - Isn't it great to get back to work?

That dead monitor’s one sticky wicket.
“All its cords have been checked. Can you pick it?”
When I got there I found
Its darned cord’s on the ground.
Did he say when I left, “That’s the ticket?”

January 4, 2011 - Why (some) users love IT

One thing I did not think about much is
Just how others my attitude touches.
By that boss, I was swayed.
Yes, a handicap aid
Can be more than a wheelchair and crutches.

January 3, 2011 - Nothing, redefined

There’s no doubt that this call was a dilly.
Why’s the new drive not being kept chilly?
Who installed this? Let’s see..
“Ida Know” and “Not Me.”
He’s the Family Circus kid Billy!
