post #31 of 36
OK. I had the boss give an arrangement once in a staff meeting in July then verbally again in August that I would get help on quality assurance for a particular piece of software that my team maintains. My quality assurance peer concurs to offer to help and save me a resource.

Except the week before my 2 week vacation, she tries to weasel out of it by saying her team can only do the one part of the software that is undergoing no change. Then 2 days before I leave, she says she has to talk to our boss because she has other priorities. The day before I leave, she's approaching people in my dept to do work her group promised to do and she would coach them.

...oh and the great thing is by the time I get back, we have a one week overlap which I'm sure she will approve nothing and then go on her own 2 or 3 week soiree.

And then she gets awarded employee of the month last month. WTF.

Pics! (Yes, I know it's a kitteh)

A new account. It's buzzword speak, and only Oakley wearing tool-bags use it.

New-ish (three months) administrator. I told her to make a one-character change to an item in a software system. She had to print out the email, at which point she came to me to tell me there was no difference between what I told her to change and what she already had in the system. The item in question was an email address. What we had currently was "lmi@". The change to be made was to "lml@".

Everyone in their right mind can tell that's a change from "el em eye" to "el em el".

She didn't realize this until I told her to compare the two email addresses.
