July 1 - 5, 2013

July 5, 2013 - Test successful. Failure rate: 100 percent.

For four years, often times I was thinkin'
That our service reps really were stinkin'.
Many customers knew
That this really was true,
Them along with one Abraham Lincoln.

July 4, 2013 - Pretty sure that's Furlough Mandated, but whatever

Can't Obama and Congress agree
How to spend all our taxes and fees?
Now a furlough is hard!
Put "FM" on your card.
That's an acronym meaning "@#$%! Me."

RIP Doug Engelbart - inventor of the computer mouse

July 3, 2013 - Phone line, redefined

Screamed the customer with lots of zeal.
"All my moolah you guys want to steal!"
Said the ISP, "Crikey,
We both think alike, he's
A clacker! This bloke can't be real!"

July 2, 2013 - You can pick that up and move it too

Said the user, "This mouse is a flop!
When I'm high on the screen, it will stop."
Now, the fix ain't grotesque,
You just push out your desk
Then your mouse will go 'way to the top.

July 1, 2013 - The first casualty is the documented process

As was told to the process recorder,
"Follow specs! That avoids all disorder!
If the guys with the bucks
Say the process sure sucks,
Then you do what they say! That's an order!!!"
