uncertainty principle

… uncertainty principle …

I hate not knowing whether I’ve been stood up for a date or not…

Today is just turning into a bad day. It started out fairly well enough. I got in, got my coffee, was ready to attend a webconference around 9a. Then at about 8:07a one of the gov’t stooges, Rick walks in and says he has a “quick project.” After I inform him that there is no such thing, he says he needs pictures scanned for a breakfast meeting at 8:30a and placed into a self-running powerpoint presentation. Now. I don’t have the fastest computer or scanner in the world, however I still went to breakfast since that’s where I was headed and came back and got to work. I finished at about 8:29a and tried saving to disk. It was taking a while, but it said that it saved. I get to the room and its already full of people, ‘cos they were actually serving breakfast. (anyone who works in an office knows what its like when you serve food at a meeting, *moo*) Plus the computer he wants it set up on has a wireless keyboard and mouse that he’s placed across the room, so I’m trying to install the presentation with people bumping me around and walking in front of the monitor (which is a decent-sized television set, actually), and the floppy disk decides to spaz out on me. No files being read. Fine, I ask Rick if the computer is on the network, he assures me that it is. Its not. So I looked at him and said, “It’s a no-go. The floppy can’t be read, and the computer’s not on the network.” He looks at me, shrugs and says, “Never mind then, forget it.” Forget it. And the kicker is, he’ll probably mark that down as “Made critical management decision,” on his list of daily tasks.

So now I have a migraine, still haven’t heard from my lunch date, so at this point (2 hours before), I would assume that we’re not getting together for lunch. Not that I’m in much of a mood for it anyway.
