And some days, you're the bug...

Right now, I feel an overwhelming desire to swear a lot. Expressively, colourfully and loudly in a veritable plethora of languages. Also, I'd like to include various comments about the parentage and genetic fitness of certain people to remain in the gene pool.

I'd really LIKE to.

Thankfully, the desire to remain gainfully employed is greater.

Oooh, but it's close. SO close, I can taste it.

What the actual hell, people?! REALLY! We have a process! It's in place! It's been working for 2 fucking years now, just fine, on a weekly basis! The vendor is happy, we are happy, IT WORKS! Why for you no want to play by the rules? WHY DO YOU IN INSIST that the vendor must create a NEW process because your special snowflake data extract is in a different format that the other 9 files that WORK? WHY can't YOU change YOUR FORMAT?

Because reasons. Right.

Why is there a dent in my desk, you may ask? Why, that's where my forehead has been repeatedly smashing into it.

YARGH. How is your day?

Yeah, that about sums it up. But, I have to admit, my Big!boss is not at all evil.

BWAHAHA!

Honestly, I can't really complain about my day, it was just that this stupid bit of stupidness with these people (who I imagine aren't really stupid, but stupid policies and pride and "this is how we do things" mentality makes people act STUPID) has been going on for over a month. A MONTH GODDAMMIT I looked at the email train and this started on FEBRUARY FUCKING 18th AND I am SO done with this...

Feh.

Sorry. LOL.

This whole stupid project started just before my last business trip to Nashville and I've got one coming up in May and am starting to envision that it STILL won't be launched by then and I'm going to have these marketing guys come and ask me what's going on and then, well... I swear, I will not be held accountable for my actions.

That sounds very frustrating!

*deadpan* because changing their format means work for them while defining a new process means work for people that aren't them?

Dealing with special snowflakes is always so tiring - you have my sympathies.

It sounds like, possibly, you may work with people reminiscent of the folks I work with.

I'm still unemployed, so you're helping me understand it's probably the best job for me right now.

Oh, man. I need to remember in my bitching that I am still very fortunate. I hope you find something soon cuz this sucks and someone out there could really use your talents.
