Working late

I'm stuck here late today, and by late I mean 5:00 or 6:00 pm. I would usually be leaving about now, 2:30-3:00ish but the president needs me to do some powerpoint stuff.

Yeah, you just read that correctly. Powerpoint.

I'm a graphic designer.

It appears that I have failed in my many attempts to dethrone myself as the sole person in this company that knows how to unlock the mysteries of Microsoft Powerpoint. I guess I know too many of it's arduous secrets.

Marvel at how I am able to make corrections in type! Be amazed at how deftly I can copy and paste! My ability to make a rectangle -- then put text in that rectangle, then add a background color of your choice to that rectangle -- I'm sure it will be revered for generations to come.

And on a day that two games came out! Two games that I've been waiting months for! Ninja Gaiden Black and We <3 Katamari! DAMN!

And just to let you in a little furhter on the ongoing joke that is my bussiness. The people I'm dealing with here? Yeah, some of them think the 'internet' is 'inside' my computer.

Honestly, really. Are these people able to operate light switches? How do they go on breathing?

The internet can't be inside your computer because it's inside mine! Thought that Powerpoint issue was being delegated. Obviously Not. Sometimes it's not fun to be the Wizard. You need a new man behind the curtain or else a bigger, scarier version of you with fire effects.

Try working Customer Service for 6 years... in the cellular phone biz...


Everytime someone drops a call... it's your fault..

It could be worse...

I don't know how, but...

It just seemed like the right thing to say.

Get back to work, slacker!

Reading that made me think of the commercial where the guy is working in an office full of monkeys :)
I guess it is a bit worse for you though. Monkeys could have done the Powerpoint work...
