People always expect IT to pull a damn rabbit out of their asses. Here's my story.

The legal dept for a fortune 500 company has decided that their software needs to be upgraded. So they hired a specialist to upgrade the software and write documentation on how to install the software. Now here's my IT nightmare. The head of the legal dept told me on Monday that they will be training their 30 legal dept users next week and she wants them to have the new software installed while they are training. Which also means they will be upgraded to Windows 2000 at the same time. She has told me I need to do 8 people per day. The documentation is over 30 pages long for one install. They are not even done with the documentation. So by Thursday, I must have an autoinstall process and image cds created for the training PCs. Does she also want me to rebuild the WTCs while I'm at it? Damn. I am a 1 man crew. Shit! No testing of this new software and they want it implemented now. No wonder I have ulcers at 24. These fuckers are going to be the death of me.

I just got a $4500/year raise. I think they need to be paying me like a porn star for how much I have to take it up the ying yang.

You probably make more than a porn star. They just have more fun at their jobs!

Yeah the IT field can be pretty messed up sometimes. They think that IT professionals are GOD or something?!

Be damn glad this wasn't sold to the company I work for. In addition to the rush job, we would want changes to the final code done during installation.

But hey, if it was easy they would have anybody do it.
