    I made the mistake of leaving the pop station on while I worked. Now my head is playing that damned Taylor Swift Trouble song over and over. GAH.

    Retail therapy sucks when you don't end up buying anything you actually wanted :(

    BUT I got 3 pairs of high-quality fishnet/decorative stockings for $20. Woohoo!

    Was all excited because I saw a sign for jalapeno burgers at Carl's Jr. LOVE jalapeno burgers. Got to restaurant, mouth watering, and found out they were selling jalapeno TURKEY burgers. Blech. So very bummed.

    more falarking at work.. I can't download cad format of ordnance survey maps because my boss hasn't paid them for the last 2 years downloads, so i have to cut and past off other people drawings, and hope the photocopy of a scan of a pdf is still to scale. I do all this using scissors and glue and trying to get our drawing to fit onto the 'copy' and he goes and effing changes the position of the building on the site.....

    then he asks me " are there two 'l's in 'brilliant'?

    Special hell, special hell, Special Hell, SPECIAL HELL, SPECIAL HELL!!!

    So help me, there is a special hell for people who don't document there work. There is an extra special special hell for people who don't do their work in any sort of logical or coherent fashion, and don't document it. At the very least, label your columns...that's not too much to ask, is it? Or naming your documents something logical? I realize that visual presentation isn't everyone's thing, and writing out actual desk guides/instructions might be asking too much, but naming and labeling? C'mon, people!

    I don't even want to think about how much time I have wasted trying to reverse engineer things...time that could have been saved by documentation and/or coherent work.

    Eeesh.

    Wow. And I thought things were bad where I work. My sympathies.

    What, QWERTY.XLS isn't self-evident? I feel the same way about programmers who don't comment their code, or only use cutesie comments that have nothing to do with what the code is doing. If a line of code is commented /* XYZZY */, it tells me you're old, but it tells nothing about the code...

    Eh? How so?

    How else do you comment code? I know of only two ways (/*comment*/ and *comment;) depending on where in my program I'm using it and if I'm working in SQL or SAS.

    No, I'm talking about the actual text of the comment...

    Ok, but I still don't get it. How would bizarre comment text = old?

    Tuesday he was asking me to do stuff whilst I was eating a sandwhich..just f*** off till i finish eating..:rolleyes:

    he just ought to retire. I think its presenile amnesia. Now he's ommitted renewing his architectural registration, which is like driving without a licence, and the stupid thing is it cost three times as much to re-register. and he's had several reminders by email.

    I used eat lunch at my desk a lot. A lot of times the staff wouldn't show any courtesy during my lunch - they'd just walk in with questions and/or want me to do something for them.

    Now at lunch, I'll leave the office and talk at least a 30 minute walk. I need the escape.

    Uhmmmm...the other day the temperature, figuring in the wind chill, had to be in the low teens :confused: ...and I still took a 30 minute walk o_O ...I just bundled up a lot...it's amazing how much getting out the office for a short period of time makes me feel better...:)

    I'm looking forward to "picnic" weather, though. ;)
