So, he drives over, lets me in and I push the reset on the building's router.

He bitched to my Senior VP, who told him the problem wasn't even a Level B and he shouldn't have called it in in the first place. And next time he made security changes without keep our group current, he would be looking for a new job.

Monday was good.
that just made me happy

To me late night calls (for people who aren't on call) are always a sign that something bad has happened. A friend called the house at 11PM last night. Emergency...... NO.

Him: "Hey, I got an extra ticket to the Dark Knight starting at midnight, are you interested."

Me (to him): "No, I need some sleep"

Me: (Inside voice) Dammit, I can't believe that douche waited until 11PM to call me about a fricken movie ticket. What, did someone knock on his door at 10:59 and give him an extra ticket?

You know you've crossed over into some threshold of responsible abulthood when you don't just jump out of bed, throw on whatever clothes are lying on the floor and head off to the movie...I knew I reached that stage when I found myself buying a vacuum cleaner on my birthday....Growing up sucks bongwater sometimes, eh?

Not as bad as buying SWMBO a vacuum cleaner for her birthday!

She was NOT impressed.

Yeah, I think this is a totally different discussion but I'm with you. I shouldn't get excited about things like buying a new washer, or appliance (except maybe a big screen TV), nor should I admit that I like my wife's Honda Odyssey and it's actually somewhat fun to drive. My priorities aren't what they used to be.
