I made it.

Filed under: PolenBabble, Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 9:43 am

7:35 a.m.: I leave Twin D a voice mail singing him a song of my awesome work ethic, making it on time, even being slightly hung over from a few drinks with a friend last night, and then staying up too late creating a character on a free-ish MMORPG and killing a bunch of wolves. (Sorry, wolves.) My character is a ranger, named MichaelBoltin. Friends don’t let friends create characters while tipsy.

7:45 a.m.: I make it down to the conference room with all the paperwork my manager asked me to bring for him.

7:55 a.m.: I’m surrounded by conference room technicians, as we all tried to do the same thing - get the internet conference up and running.

8:05 a.m.: It becomes apparent that (once again) the internet conference isn’t going to work properly, and the 15 people in the room want to get started, including the guy on the teleconference who can’t see the slides. (The manager ended up e-mailing them all to him.)

8:15 a.m.: I am terrified that I am going to be trapped in the conference room all day with them, as because I had been sitting in front of the computer, they were making me advance all their slides for them.

8:25 a.m.: I manage to escape. PHEW!

I’m back at my desk now and I’m feeling much better. Two of my other managers and another colleague and I are all going out to lunch at noon to celebrate all of our birthdays - that should be fun.
