I worked for about a year and a half as tech support at a little domains'n'more shop in the Phoenix area, before I up and moved to California. After moving, I went back through all my journal entries and came up with a list of rules.

Things Azz (or Azz's co-workers) Shouldn't Do in the Workplace:


  1. Must not knock over computers in the training room, even if they are just where a stray foot can push them over.

  2. "A great big truck" should never be included in any description of how the internet works.

  3. When specifically excluding "a great big truck" from discussions of how the internet works, should wait until instructor's mouth is no longer full of coffee.

  4. Must sign out for breaks with something at least resembling her legal name.

  5. Must not claim the last name of "Lunatic" when calling Tier 2, because they will take me seriously and get mad when they don't find me on the list.

  6. May not throw beachballs at the heads of teammates anymore.

  7. May not throw beachballs over the heads of teammates anymore.

  8. May no longer violate the airspace of the nearby Quality Assurance cubes with:

    • beachballs

    • frisbees

    • frisbees-missing-their-centers

    • hackey-sacks

    • Nerf footballs

    • Nerf baseballs

    • ...anything, really

Found this on the wall at work...

Last night as I lay sleeping
I died or so it seemed,
Then I went to heaven
But only in my dream.

Up there St Peter met me
Standing at the pearly gates,
He said "I must check your record
Please stand here and wait".

He turned and said "Your record
Is covered with terrible flaws,
On earth I see you rallied
For every losing cause.

I see that you drank alcohol
And smoked and used drugs too,
Fact is, you've done everything
A good person should never do.
We can't have people like you up here
Your life was full of sin".

Then he read the last of my record
Took my hand and said "Come in".
He led me up to the big boss and said "Take him in and treat him well,
He used to work in a call centre He's done his time in hell".



So I thought I'd share it with the rest of you.
