    My personal favorite is the person that knows just enough about computers to be dangerous. The kind of person that tweaks an install, tweaks it wrong, and fucks over the whole system. The one that replaces RAM with a video card. The one that performs a system wipe and forgets to back their stuff up.
    Yeah, I LOVED those....

I can't tell you how many times I've encountered broken buttons (especially on laptops) and people say "I don't know how it broke!" and then I watch them type on their computer...
    This was me last night. My laptop is a 2007 Vista dealio, so given it's a 2007, the battery is shot. Yesterday it accidentally got unplugged and thus died. I tried to turn it on and it'd show the blue light like it was on and I'd see the little hard-drive light flash a couple times, but nothing would happen - despite the blue light remaining on. So, I'd hold down the power button to shut it off (blue light goes off) and turn it back on (blue light on but no activity). I finally gave up and walked away after banging on the keyboard to vent my frustrations. At that exact moment, my kids were fighting us about going to bed and our internet was down YET AGAIN (I swear it's only up at 3 am when everyone in town is sleeping) and I had homework to do. I was stressed to the max. After about 20 minutes or so, it FINALLY came back on. Annoyed the piss out of me.

    And for some reason, it wouldn't pick up my MIL's router (she lives on the other side of the block) so I couldn't even access the internet from her IP address. Finally had to use my husband's computer b/c it would pick up the router from MIL's house and allow me to access my class. I'm really, really, REALLY fed up with not having internet signal at our house. They tell us it's b/c we're "too far away" and by the time the signal reaches us, it's weak, despite the fact that their IT guy checked the signal strength and said it's fine. I don't understand why my MIL can get plenty of internet signal from them, but we can't and we're equal distance from the main office... makes no sense to me. I think we're just getting screwed out of $50 a month. In fact, I think I'll call them again b/c now I'm all mad about it again. Thanks, Nameless!! hahaha

    In all fairness to my equiptment, it is usually taking a beating because I can't take it out on the customers.

    *smack the mouse into the desk* "Gah! The answer is NO! What part of that do you not understand?!"

    Maybe I need to figure out how to mount a small punching bag in my cubicle instead . . .

    Don't tell my previous employers, but in all my cubicles, there's at least one soft spot where the fabric hides the fact that there's a hole in the particleboard from the heel of my hand or my foot.

    Lol- I'd take it out on our off-white, padded walls (coincidence? I think not) except that mine are attached to everyone else's in the row. The semi-perminent tremor would get annoying after a while

    I had one and popped him in a week. I had a co-worker get me a "kicking bag" (duct taped bag of flour) and put it under my desk so I didn't put a hole in the wall of the one office I've had.

    Yeah, I would be afraid of popping it Hmm, my hands are pretty weak. Maybe a grip ball or something like that would help . . .

    Doc results are back! Ready for this? I got a 3 page cholesterol primer. FUCK YOU LADY: I'm glorious. Mostly full of general info on cholesterol that I already know, and some CW nonsense about healthy grains (but not a focal point, which is relieving).

    Vitamin D - 59 ng/ml (Nice! I'll keep my 6,000 IU/day and maybe see about re-testing in August...probably have to keep up supplementation all year round considering my mom's propensity for low D as well)
    Glucose - 94 mg/dL (basically fasted, ate 12 hrs prior, not great, but not bad, considering sugar last week and some hypoglycemic symptoms)
    Cholesterol Total - 226 mg/mL (dude sweet! dropped 30 since earlier in the year)
    Cholesterol HDL - 64 mg/dL
    Ferritin - (can't find it in the documents but she said it's 30, down from when I was supplementing in January, but it's in my multivitamin at the same amount so I will be taking it again, need more Vitamin C for absorption)

    Those are the results I care about/have available (don't tell me about LDL/trigs in your stupid document if you aren't going to calculate it, bitch!). I am very happy with the results. Even if my cholesterol levels are really nothing to be concerned about it, it is still relieving to see them lower than last year/earlier this year (biometric screening at work) and closer to out of the high risk range. I am awesome. More exercise and my new multivitamin full of awesomeness and I will be invulnerable. Except for stupid allergies.

    My response to doc:
    "1. Ferritin was around 43 in January after 1-2 months of supplementation (up from 30). Stopped supplementing in March when I ran out of Vitamin C. Multivitamin has iron, but just started it last week. Would like to re-test in a few months. Results should be in the system from Dr. Gordin for last November/January including iron levels. Which document has these results? I could not locate it.
    2. Cholesterol is down since last year so I'm not worried. Also believe it runs high in family as well as heart disease, so slightly doomed, my dad lived a very healthy lifestyle prior to heart attack. Also not sure what kind of weight I could lose... Becoming more active will help enough I think.
    3. Vitamin D - going to keep supplementing to get closer to 70 for the summertime, would like to re-test in a few months with regular sunshine exposure."

    Yeah, she fucking dropped "lose weight" in there. ExCUSE me? Maybe it was a canned response/she forgot who I was when she wrote it up (first time I've seen this doc). She probably didn't mean anything by it, but it ruffled my feathers anyway.
