My day has been complete shit so far. I just wanna fast forward to Tuesday already.
I woke up late this morning, as the power apparently went out at some point last night and my alarm didn't go off, thus I was late for work. I get to work, and wait for our morning meeting with our team leader - who doesn't call and wastes half an hour of our time while we wait for him. Then I get passed a call from a co-worker who has messed the computer up worse than it already was, and what should have been a five minute fix becomes a 3 hour fix. Then I get crap about software installs that I've had on hold for too long, so I call the user again to try to get them done and he says the same thing he always says - that the machines are integral to the plant and cannot be rebooted unless the plant is on shutdown and that he will call me when it is safe to do this. This has now been ongoing since the beginning of May. Apparently though, I'm supposed to tell this user that it's mandatory and that they don't have a choice in the matter. So for a measly virus scanner update (on a machine that doesn't access the internet, email, or even MS Office), they're supposed to shut down the mill for an hour, losing millions of dollars in the process - simply because an SLA is overdue. Then another 4 of my calls get put on hold cause the user is either unavailable or not ready for them to happen yet. I'm also supposed to complete some online training courses that I can't do as I don't have rights to register myself for them, (even though I'm getting hounded on a daily basis for not doing them). So I'm sitting here with lots of stuff to do that I can't do and I'm bored.
How's everyone else's Monday going?
