The last few days have brought more Java update issues, which in turn caused more Citrix errors which resulted in more calls to IT - all of which led to a throbbing in my brain and a desire to yell at not!mensa candidate IT people who are clearly 12 different kinds of idiot, because seriously, who upgrades the call center computers first and then gets around to updating the servers? WTF? MORONS!

And normally I am of the, "Your lack of planning does not constitute my emergency" school of thought, except, in this case? The IT Department's lack of planning has directly contributed to my emergency, because I have a report due tomorrow dammit, and I *cannot access crucial information to complete said report* because, whoops! when I log in I get a prompt to upgrade the Java which I cannot do because I'm logging in through Citrix!

Of course, I get a very polite, "Sorry, no ETA on a fix, but it should be soon enough."

IT SHOULD BE SOON ENOUGH? Soon enough for what? Soon enough for me to write a very small shell script to replace them all? Soon enough to learn to dance the tango? Soon enough for me to send a request for a hand written transcript of the calls I am supposed to be monitoring to be delivered by carrier pigeon?

Brain damaged, lack-wits. THAT'S IT! THEY'RE ALL FIRED! I'm *SO* figuring out how to build a working Stargate, because I need to send the entire IT department to Pegasus to do tech support for the Wraith.

What? if I can build something imaginary, I can send them somewhere imaginary. Shut up.

So the best part of my day?

I've mentioned before that I go by Meredith for work purposes. Well, my direct customer line has a message saying "You've reached Meredith" and now I have IT calling me Meredith, too.

Dear Lord. Fandom is colliding with real life with such a high hit ratio that it is leaving me a little punch drunk.

*giggles madly*

Channeling my inner bitch. And It FEELS GOOD. Just call me Mer.

We call that a "Rodney McKay Day" in our house. It's a day where you just want to shout, "MORONS. I AM SURROUNDED BY MORONS."

Yes. Exactly.

You clearly understand my pain.

You know -- bad IT people would totally have stopped the Wraith problem!

Man that sounds like me. I've become the IT department for the house (seriously how teh frell am I related to these technologically inept morons?) and I've taken to posting hours because otherwise I get awoken in the middle of the night because the computer is acting hinky. Let's just say- you do NOT want to see how grumpy I am in the middle of the night when you wake me up because you couldn't figure out that it is *okay* for the virus scan to run a scan. /endrant ;)

Same people who do major upgrades the day before a system goes LIVE.
