Right, dumbass Scottish woman (no offence to the Scottish among us) was complaining about a TINY leak in the corner of the wall near her desk... so yesterday she decides, thats it, I want to move. She then says shes moving into "I.T.'s Store room" ... thats where all our equipment, licensing, software etc is kept. Our top boss says "yea ok" ... im like "WTF????"
Anyways, I was just in there now, sorting some ink cartridges that got delivered and setting up a laptop. She minces in .... Oh so this is where I'm sitting? ... Im like .. erm No.
Why she asks?
I said "Well thats the laser cheque printer, its a security risk and a break of policy to have those who arent "approved" to sit next to it etc as it prints daily.
So shes like ... Yea so? I'll move over there. Where I said, well thats where we have 3 Pc's and this laptop which we're setting up for new users, and its all networked together. So in a strop she just sits next to the Laser cheque printer and starts eating. Next thing I know (as im organising the cartridges) she gets a door stop and keeps the door open. So I tell her she cant do that as its an I.T. Store room and technically its meant to be kept LOCKED when no I.T. staff are present but since we're breaking that rule for u, u could at least keep it closed. She then rants about being hot. So I'm like ... "***** SAKE!!"
Then to cap it all off I get "Wheres my phone?"
I'm like "Huh???"
She says "Theres no port for my phone and I need my phone, get it sorted, do something useful!" ... So I "Calmly" explain to her that there is only ONE network point in the room, this is a DATA point that goes to a hub and then into our "setup" pc's. What she needs is a network point with VOICE capability, and there isnt one. Since shes only there for 2weeks (temporary while the leak is fixed) it's a waste of I.T. resources and money to bring in an external company (since we dont actually own the building so cant modify it much) to wire in a port from the servers that are at the other side of the building.
She then rants about I.T. being useless and she needs a phone and this is rediculous etc.
Thats when I walked away, got a sandwich and now I'm trying to cool off, as I was about to launch her out of the window back to "Bonny Scotland" ...
And to think I have to go back there in 30mins to finish that laptop off ........................
