August 31, 2012 - Penny wise, $100 foolish

“Ship that card overnight? Don’t you dare!”
But the downtime caused bosses to swear.
That machine's down two weeks.
Now the fish never seeks
An approval and carries a spare.

August 30, 2012 - Which is, of course, why it's the last resort

There's a bug, and I'm trying to crack it.
I tried users and trying to hack it.
I knew something's askew -
That's a tech that I knew!
The guy wrote his last name with two brackets.

August 29, 2012 - Broken, redefined

“Your darned program is broken,” they scoff.
“The best place for it’s in a pig’s trough!”
What is causing them fits?
Undercharging four bits!
It’s just fifty-four cents? Write it off!

August 28, 2012 - Just like you told me to

That new Service key’s one cool ingredient
That sure makes the phone system expedient.
Give the Help Desk a try
But she doesn’t know why?
One can say that she’s really obedient!

August 27, 2012 - Well, it IS Monday

Help that user? At that job I balked.
"Clicking buttons does nothing!" he squawked.
I don't want to be nice.
Here's Ralph Kramden's Advice:
Send the guy to where Neil Armstrong walked.

RIP Neil Armstrong 1930 - 2012
