I am contemplating buying a video camera so I can document my work-life.
It’s Corner Gas meets the Gilmore Girls with a side of Road to Avonlea.
Added bonus, no one here understands technology.
First thing today my boss and I got into a tiff because I wanted to remove some rather rude (but still funny) graffiti from the front hall. I work in a creative arts building; museum and gallery on the floor level, dance studios on the second, and music studios on the third. There are a lot of people coming and going, especially young kids, and I felt it was inappropriate despite the funny limerick.
My boss agreed that it should be taken down, however, wanted the building manager to do it because it technically wasn’t part of the museum. This goes into a much bigger battle between my boss and the building manager. Seeing as the manager wasn’t in today, and it was written on glass with a dry erase marker I told him I could take the three seconds out of my day to wipe it off.
This is when he turned into an 8 year old child, and refused to let me take it down. This then snowballed as more graffiti was found on the doors to the building and he pitched a fit saying this isn’t our responsibility, yada, yada, yada. I flat out told him it doesn’t matter whose responsibility it is, it needs to be taken down now, and I’m going to do it.
And I did.
Then he proceeded to not speak with me for the rest of the day.
Until about 30 minutes ago when a Trojan virus showed up on his computer and he didn’t know what to do. The admin staff was away on an errand and he can’t use the intercom system so he had to come up to my office on the third floor to tell me.
This amused me.
So did his pacing back in forth while I took my sweet ass time removing the virus. It was one of those fake anti virus programs that tries to scam you into purchasing the software to remove the virus, except the viruses aren’t actually there, just made to look like they are. Anyway, I downloaded new program and removed the scam one.
Unfortunately, there is no program to remove annoying luddite bosses.
I’m kind of tempted to write some of my own graffiti on the front door to our office and see what he does. Suggestions for colourful limericks? ;)
