I hate coming in in the morning and finding out that my Outlook's completely fucked up. Apparently, and for no discernible reason, it's suddenly decided there's a major problem with it's .pst (whatever that is) and now it won't send and/or receive anything. I could have coped with this, if I hadn't hit on the bloody brilliant idea of seeking our helpdesk's assistance. Why do we employ these people? They're no bloody help at all, and that's as per bloody usual. Am I what? CPQ? Do I have an EMEA-account? What server am I on? Escher, Giotto, or...? How the fuck should I know? All I know is, it worked yesterday. Do I regularly run a scan on my .pst? Was I supposed to? And why, in all the years I've been here, has no one ever bothered to tell me so if I was? ::grumble grumble:: Jumped up little turd, I strongly suspect he's just trying to cover up for the fact that he hasn't a clue what's going on either, but is too fucking arrogant to admit it; and all his unhelpful comments have only succeeded in pissing me off more.

Tell you what else pisses me off. Unsolicited mail. Spam. Pop-up ads. And those fucking wankers who call around dinner time trying to sell me insurance policies, credit cards, newspapers, encyclopedias...and then when I put the phone down have the nerve to call right back and tell me that I have no manners! Flipping heck, if I wanted an encyclopedia, aren't I perfectly capable of going out and buying one? Aren't I?

And I hate my new keyboard, too. It's too bloody sensitive and it keeps missing out on the letters I type. It can't keep up with the speed with which I type and it makes me look as if I can't spell.

...or shagged to go over what I've written before hitting the Post-button, which is probably nearer the truth...
