So Friday, the computer system was up for about an hour and a half. Being a conscientious person and a model employee, I was able to enter thirty jobs from the previous day during that span. When I walked in yesterday, the computer was up and running smoothly. Sweet!
I started entering jobs, about thirteen in the first hour or two, and when the next report arrived, boom, it crashed. So not only could I not enter the jobs into the mainframe, but I also had to grab the earlier copies and re-enter all the jobs I put into the main system.
Look, I know I live in a garbage city and work in a sub-par department, but is it too much to ask for equipment that is reliable and up to date? I want to swipe a rant from a World of Tanks YouTuber:
I realize I will be shit on and blamed for every mistake sometimes. I also realize I will escape criticism and scorn sometimes, too. All I want is to have equipment that works once in a while. I JUST WANT TO COME IN HERE AND DO MY JOB WITHOUT THE FUCKING COMPUTER CRASHING EVERY FIVE MINUTES! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!!
An artist’s rendering of my reaction at the time can bee seen below the fold…
So yeah, this computer and I are going to drop gloves sooner rather than later.
Oh, by the way, at 8pm we received a call for a four-year old shot on the highway. It was founded, and the child was shot in the stomach. But yes, please tell me why I would continue living in this shithole for the rest of my life?
