things I've done since lunch:

  • taken cold medicine
  • blown my nose 80 bajillion times
  • made some tea
  • bought a greenhouse
  • planned my early escape
  • hoped that people sit in their seats at the Ben Folds show tonight so I don't have to stand (I know it's lazy BUT REALLY I just don't understand why people stand up at concerts when there are seats provided...someone died making those seats, you know, you should sit in them)
  • wondered if I could figure out a way to sleep and drive at the same time (Michael Scott does it)

BUT. Mostly I've been deleting work emails. And not just the ones asking me to do things, ZING! Anyway. Some company-wide email went out about a survey everyone can take to complain about how much they hate their jobs. The link to the survey doesn't work. And so I've gotten at least 50 emails that say something along the lines of, "my link doesn't work," and then 50 more emails telling everyone to stop hitting "reply to all," and THEY'RE STILL COMING IN AS I TYPE. There are something like 90,000 employees at my company so I'm pretty sure my Inbox is going to blow up soon. Here's hoping.

There should be a way to disable "Reply All" on distribution lists like that. Or a way to disable the stupid people from replying at all.

I have never been to a concert, but I've been to other events which make me wonder why everyone insists on standing. Of course, I use a wheelchair, so it pisses me off when I have a great view of everybody's ass instead of the thing I came to see. Next time I should just tell them that "someone died making those seats!" Perfect response.

I know when something like that happens at my work, and I start getting all those hundreds of emails from people going, "WAAHHH!!! Broken! So helpless! Don't know how to use email!" I can't help but think, "holy shit, all these people really have college degrees?"

Julie, maybe we just shouldn't give them computers. They don't know how to use them.

NTE, we need to get you to a concert. One where we sit in the front row so you don't have to stare at anyone's butt.

Vahid, the bad thing about being in HR is I know how much money everyone makes. That's what always occurs to me whenever things like this happen.
