Check out the Stroumboulopouli for the big shocking (to some of us anyway) news of the day. Personally, it makes me want to smack myself in the face repeatedly with a shovel, but maybe that's just me.
First day back at work after a week off, and guess what, still no wireless in my office. (This has been a problem on and off for over a month now)
Welcome back - you've got 375,475 tonnes of work to catch up on and no way to accomplish that!
I called Telecom and tore a strip off them and then waited for them to arrive in the morning, as they promised. Finally I left at 3:15 to do work at home. Bastards.
So when I got home, rather than take my vacation notification off my work email, I just changed it to read:
Subject: expect a delayed response
I apologize for any delays in responding to your email. Due to an ongoing problem with internet availability in my office at the University of Calgary, I am unable to access emails on-site.
I will be attempting to answer emails from my home in the evenings, however if you need to contact me during the workday, please call me at blah blah blah.
I was going to add:
"Feel free to call Telecom frequently to expedite the resolution of this situation",
but I didn't have the dude's phone number available. Maybe I'll add it yet.
Good idea or bad?
