"can you please restart your computer"

Did you want me to log off?

"no, can you please restart your computer"
did you want me to shut down or restart?
"can you please restart your computer"

One of those days...

e.g.

Him: "Hey should we get a burger at lunch, I really want a burger, yeah lets definitely do that!". So he goes to lunch, comes back, no burger, no mention of it, pretends we never had the conversation.

Him: "Yeah we definitely need to email HR about that. No way i'm letting this go" < him promising to email HR on behalf of us both about a complaint. I check the email logs. Did he send anything ? nahhhhhh ofcourse not.

And then if you try and challenge him on these things he goes from 0 to 100% defensive in a picosecond. "WHATT!!!! NO I NEVER SAID THAT!!! WHATEVER !!"



I like him, he's a cool guy, but he does that several times a month and it's annoying. I even call him out on it before it happens now. As soon as he says something with confidence that I know full well he will never follow through on, i'm just like "yeah that will never happen, will it..." and he starts getting all pissy again. Ofcourse i'm right, it doesn't happen. I don't get it, don't say something unless you are going to do it... but then he is one of them over confident people. If there is ever anything wrong with IT systems, he always immediately starts blaming me, never thinks he's in the wrong about anything etc.

tl;dr colleague over promises and under delivers.
I like to **** with people like that so bad. I'll just be like "yea man enjoy your salad" acting completely oblivious that they said burger. It gets them thinking real hard after you do it a few times. In my old position my boss was like this.

Me - So are we going to get those cards ordered or do I just sit on my *** longer waiting for something to happen?

Boss - Yea totally man, I'm going to email procurement as soon as I'm back at my desk

Me - Ok sweet I'm really going to enjoy the nothingness from today

Boss - Wait what?

Me - *Goes to the bathroom*

He actually asked me what I meant one time and I told him straight up, you never do anything you say you're gonna do so I reply with bull**** back because I already know the answer. All he said was fair enough.

Before I left the breakfix team at Lockheed I literally told somebody "Reboot your ****ing computer" because I was tired with how stupid they were. Didn't get fired or in trouble, and they didn't ask anymore stupid questions.

Welp, changed my oil last night and test drove it. 100% fine. Waiting in the line to get the kids, oil filter decided to spray 6 quarts of brand new oil all over the school parking lot. In less than 5 minutes, rod knock.

Now that, sucks! I would ask if it was a FRAM, but you strike me as someone that avoids their junkier filters?

Nope, was a K&N with a bad seal. Now I have a lifter that's making noise on me (wasn't rod knock like I suspected). Still bad, but not as bad. Typically I put Motorcraft on my Mustangs just because they've worked but at the time that was all that was in stock. Lucky for me, I have a set of 4v B heads coming next month that should alleviate this issue. In the meantime I'll be putting a 1/2 quart of Trans fluid in my oil to help the lifter along annnnnd change again. FML man. I have so much oil that spilled all over my damn new garage floor it's unreal. Luckily I have a pressure washer. I have heavily considered scrapping my Tesla purchase in favor of getting a second vehicle now then selling it when I know I'll be able to get that Tesla 3 same day or close. Might get a truck.

My boss really annoys me sometimes, he just doesn't understand the time things take. One time, he asked me to give a 1-hour presentation on a component of cell site forensics. When I asked for a day of time to prepare it, he couldn't understand why it would take more than an hour to make.

^ All bosses ever

Well it depends if they're a management style boss who have no idea about the skills or work of the people they're managing, or if they've become an IT manager or whatever because they've worked in IT for 10 years. My manager is the latter but he is still clueless sometimes. The main thing he is guilty of is he never takes into account fudge factor. He will say "Setup 10 tablets tomorrow please, should only take a few hours". Wellllllllll, yes, in a perfect world maybe that would take 2 hours. But it won't, because some of the tablets will be faulty, some won't be charged, some of the accounts won't authenticate because MDM sucks, one of them won't be on the inventory, and atleast two will need re-doing because HR will email us correcting the names of the new employees. So in reality it will take atleast 2x as long as you think it will Mr Boss.


In other news, things like this make me utterly convinced corruption is rife through all levels of national and international government and non-gov bodies. Everything from UK Gov, to FIFA, to WHO and IMF. There is no way a **** like this guy gets chosen without paying his way to that position. Robert Mugabe's WHO appointment condemned as 'an insult' - BBC News

Honestly the sooner AI can do a better job than humans and we can kick all these ****ers out of positions of power the better.
