I was getting my coffee this morning and found three of the engineers hunkered over the computer bench beside the server room. They were performing surgery on a cow. It was what used to get whipped around the office before the howler monkeys showed up. (Funny that the monkeys have both vanished) The noisemaker in the cow had stopped MOOOOOOOing.

Once they had it working again, they turned around and nailed Dushan with it. It never fails - that guy can see it coming with both eyes wide open and he'll *still* startle.

I asked bitter!guy, "Hey, how many of you would it take to change a light bulb?"

He snapped right back with, "It depends if it's supposed to make a noise when we're done."

*snort*

My teenager asks, "What do they DO there?"

And I realized that while I know how awesome your work is, I don't know what you actually *do*.

The guys here do all sorts of things, but some of it probably wouldn't make sense outside of this office. They do product mapping and training (we actually won an international award in Vegas last year for our mapping solutions software) they do QA, they create NISCS - yeah. I don't even really understand all of what they do.

*I* do customer facing stuff; I reach out to pissed off customers. I review agent calls looking for any problem interactions that need to be addressed or trending issues affecting affecting customer satisfaction. I also collate sales data and do reports and such.

Pretty much I do whatever the boss asks me to do.

You work in a fun office - I miss that when we had this one group of software developers come on board at one company I worked at. They used to have nerf ball wars, which was great, since we didn't have full cubicles, just tri-fold panels that could be moved at will. ;)

How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
