life can be weird! - Puppy's Kennel
life can be weird!
so this morning i rolled up to work to find that we were moving desks, AGAIN!!! i figured something was happening, coz some moron started spraying strong cleaning shit yesterday afternoon and i had to vacate the building since i gave me an almighty asthma attack. any way, i get told i'm moving and i told the boss 'great, so i will be losing my email access again, huh?' for some strange reason, every time they move me to a new desk, in spite of our settings being set for 'roving' the new computer always seems to eat my password! he was all like 'nah, that wont happen!' but, naturally, puppy was right!!! as soon as i try to log on it's telling me wrong password! yeah, right!!! it was fine yesterday, all of my passwords are synched and the system log in was fine with the same password, but not my email account! *rolls eyes*
so i'm all ready to spend at least half an hour on the phone to our helpdesk, when the boss comes back. he tells me the team leader for the girl who tried to kill me with the spray last night came over and apologised profusely......to him!!!! BIG FREAKIN' DEAL!!! how about apologising to the person who spend half the night coughing up crap outta their lungs???
so then he tells me some of the girls in our section want to clean their desks, so maybe i should go downstairs and sit in the sun for ten minutes. brilliant idea, apart from all the people sitting on the seats under the no smoking signs SMOKING!!! that is sooooo not good for asthma!!! i ended up going back into the lobby and sitting there.
i wait ten minutes and go back up and the boss comes running at me going "no, no, no!!!! you can't come back in!!! their still spraying! go out shopping for half an hour." of course, since we are in the business part of melbourne, as opposed to the shopping part, i told him i'd grab my ipod touch and sit in the break room watching videos until it was safe. so with the top of my tshirt pulled over my nose, i race to my desk, grab the ipod and run back out to the break room and i sit down to watch a few disturbed videos.
after a while, the boss comes in to see me again. he asks "are you sure you wouldn't like to go shopping for an hour?" (notice a theme here? first it's ten minutes, then half an hour, now it's an hour) i tell him "no! if i have an hour, i'll watch an episode of SPN!" (god i love my ipod!) he's like "fine. i'll come and get you when it's safe to come back."
half way through the episode (season 4 opener) and he's back. so i'm thinking 'damn it! i knew it was too good to be true' but he tells me one of the girls' has brought in a cake for her birthday and they're gunna cut it now. do i want to come in? when i asked if the fumes have cleared he tells me 'no. they are still really strong', so i tell him no thanks and go back to watching SPN. well, i finished the episode! then i watched the gag reel from season one. still no sign of the boss! so i played yahtzee.....then collapse.....then went back to watching music videos. he finally came to get me at 11:20!!!
i asked him if it's safe to come back and he tells me "i don't know, but try it and if you feel even a little uncomfortable, take an early lunch." holy crap!!! my boss has finally realised that it is actually dangerous for an asthmatic to have an attack!!! i mean, you'd have thought that the whole '12 days in hospital, the first 8 on continuous oxygen' thing should have been a bit of a hint, but at least he has finally realised!!!
it was okay by then, so i decided i'd better call the help desk to try to get my email access back. mainly because last time it took two days for them to work out what the hell was wrong with it. they did the 'remote' thing with my computer and eventually after several different approaches, the guy finally got me back my emails. the funniest was when he decided we needed to re-set my password, in spite of the fact that it worked perfectly well yesterday. he told me the default password and told me to put it in. i did and pressed enter only to have it tell me 'wrong password' yet again. he was all exasperated and "look, I'LL DO IT!!!" which he did......and got the exact same message. hehehe, i had to put my hand over my mouth to stop from laughing out loud!!! all up, it took like half an hour and it was like "kool!!! it's nearly lunch time!!!"
now that would have to be the most enjoyable morning i have ever had at work!!! instead of dealing with grumpy customers and our pain in the ass system, i got to spend it with some of my favorite guys/hotties, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki from Supernatural and my darling David Draiman, Dan Donegan, Mike Wengren and John Moyer from Disturbed!!! and i get paid for it!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!

LMAO, denis woz scratching his head, coz he found three unopened bottlez of water and two half empty one'z in her desk. he asked me why i thought she would have all that water? hehehe, the man should know better than to ask me!!! :-P i told him she needz it in case the apocalypse happenz and she runz out of water. LMAO, one of the guyz asked, "then why doez she take her glass into the kitchen all the time to get filtered water?" i laughed and told him, "silly! if she drinkz it all now, she still won't have any when the apocalypse getz here!" *snortz* that kept them laughing for a while.

Plus side - being payed to watch SPN, it's like the dream job!

Downside, stupid people who think you can't type in a password properly. And cleaner fumes.

Glad your asthma was okay though, I suppose it's better to be safe than sorry after last time.

hehehe, it woz awesome!!! a whole episode, plus the gag reel!!! :-D AND disturbed!!! short of having them all there in person, wot more could a fan girl want??? ;-)
yeah, it woz the way he said it? like he thought i woz a moron who couldn't type a simple password!!! *rollz eyez*
hehehe, after the previous night'z attack and her team leader being all worried, i guess the boss thought he'd be lynched if he let me have another attack. at least it'z an improvement. the other week i had two attackz, two dayz running at work? ya know wot my boss said to me? "wot do you expect me to do about it???" and yet, the team leader from the other team, who woz so upset her worker gave me an attack? she has volunteered to find some cleanerz that are more asthma friendly, without anyone even asking! that'z how bad she felt about it!
