Can you reset my account. I typed in my password, got scared when it didn't take it, panicked and typed it again too many times before I realized I left the caps lock on. --Zippy - the face of Funhouse IT


WahWah is LD's direct boss. WahWah is annoying at the best of times. LD is a straight shootin' woman that calls it like it is and doesn't hold back. So, I overhear. . .

LD - "Now, what the hell do you want?"

WahWah - I just want for you to be happy.

LD - That's just ridiculous.

He left, she kept working.

I never agreed to those terms. I never agreed to those terms. I never agreed to those terms. I never agreed to those terms. I never agreed to those terms. --SUPAH DAVE - on the phone with his bank

My sister was a very good looking girl. It's not that I'm sayin' I'd do her or anything like that. Just, you know, when you're that age, a free peek every chance you get isn't something you turn down just because of some stupid idea that guys aren't supposed to notice how hot their sister is just because she's their sister. You know what I'm sayin'? --Fred - warehouse guru on everything.

We've had the power drop two days in a row at exactly 3:30. Brak, the plant engineer, the first day was fierce in action, calling the power company and ripping some ass. And rightly so. The second day, I see him wandering the halls chatting amicably with people. I approach him to get an update on the situation so I knew when to plan for server re-alignment.

Me - any news?

Brak - Someone should be here in the next hour, hour and a half. I've got a wedding rehearsal to get to.

Then he went on to the next person and I heard, simply,

I've got a wedding rehearsal to get to.

And he made his way down the all, telling each person he saw he had to get to a wedding rehearsal. Priorities bitches, we ain't got 'em.

I don't know, depending on his relationship with the bride (and her temperament) in said wedding, getting to that rehearsal probably was about the most important thing in his world at the time.

I happen to know some back story. by nightflameblue (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Jul 11, 2008 at 06:25:41 AM EST
He doesn't know the bride. He was hired by the groom. He and his band. Once his band-brain kicks in, business means nothing. However, he does have plenty of time to run around telling everybody how important this gig is no matter what crisis may be happening in the building at the time.

Ahhh, the brilliance of Zippy the wonder turkey!

You can't get rid of him because his sheer stupidity makes everyone around him look Mensa-like.
