December 22 - 26, 2014

December 26, 2014 - Good thing this could never happen today, huh?

A new system the suits want to christen.
But we said there's requirements missin'.
"Here's the due date in stone!"
"We can't hit it!" we'd moan,
Do you think anybody would listen?

So for months I would code and I'd code.
Though I knew with those specs it'd implode.
What I wrote's now refused?
It's not gonna be used?
So I told them I'm hitting the road.

December 25, 2014 - Ring of truth

Said the user, "My terminal's kinky!
When I type, what I type in looks stinky.
What's the thing that he missed?
He would get an assist
From a ring that he wears on his pinkie.

December 24, 2014 - Liars, damned liars and engineers

Here's the task I've been given today.
Make sure engineers do what they say.
How can management sleuth
Making sure it's the truth?
Move their desks to Guantanamo Bay.

December 23, 2014 - Unclear on the concept

There's a concept the new guy won't get.
Got a problem with networks? Don't fret.
"Call the N-O-C guys
While I'm resting my eyes."
Said the graveyard shift team, "WANNA BET?!?"

December 22, 2014 - 'Clean and office appropriate,' redefined

I'll admit I don't know what to do.
There's a pic HR sent that's so blue.
As that image I'll mask,
Yet I still have to ask:
Who can someone report HR to?
