June 20, 2014 - Honesty: definitely the most improbable policy

As she left, I would hear the boss bawl
"This darned phone will not travel at all!"
"Yes it does!" said the crew,
But what I'd like to do
Is to give her a good wake-up call.

June 19, 2014 - Oh sure, bring reality into it!

'Twas a very strange phone system quirk.
Why? The manager said with a smirk,
"It's a lesson, I say.
This will happen when they
Have to call up their help desk at work."

On this manager, I will now dish.
Though this lesson you teach is your wish,
There can not be a doubt,
You're not talking about
Us devoted Computerworld fish!

June 18, 2014 - Waiting for the electrician (or someone like him)

Though there's PC's that lightning has charred,
From installing devices I'm barred.
I was taken aback.
It appears what I lack
Is an IBEW card.

June 17, 2014 - So you thought BYOD would make support easier?

We now BYOD? He's disarmed!
Now his routine we've totally harmed.
With that policy drawn,
Now his blackberry's gone.
Of this fact he is rather alarmed.

So you need that alarm? Yes, I get it.
Your phone has an alarm, I will bet it!
"Well, I guess that's okay
I will go on my way.
I will just need assistance to set it."

June 16, 2014 - One extra zero = a whole lotta nothing

"Give 'em 900 megs," I'd relate.
But the users are really irate.
They can't log in, you know
Due to one extra "0".
Folks can't work, but the OS runs GREAT!
