I can't even



  • Today's things not to do:

    • Don't get all your information wrong and call your IT department's account manager in a huff.
    • Don't get angry about something for no reason and try to take it out on IT who is trying to help you.
    • Don't refuse to follow the decisions of the owner of the company.
    • Don't claim your staff is bored and needs their time filled by just moving a mouse around.
    • Don't make ridiculous demands that are so extreme they require service level adjustments and approval of the owner.
    • Don't lie five times to your account manager while on a recorded line.

    Yes, still employed. Mostly because we are still on the call.



  • Turns out she's only a part time receptionist, and very new.

    Not an excuse, that person does not belong in a business

    Oh no, it wasn't an excuse. More of a "just how much trouble she is in" point.



  • Which is to say... a lot.



  • Talking to support at Weave, the supposed phone vendor today, and their "technical support" asked us the difference between switch ports, and wall ports, and tried to claim that they have customers that don't need switches! Um... who do you think you are fooling buddy?



  • This is a bit involved, but I about bitch slapped someone who refuses to:

    • use a system that they have access too
    • been repeatedly told to use said system
    • decides to yell at me because we have none of an item left in stock because
    • they continually take things without accounting for them

    So yea, I may just slap an idiot today.

    Oh

    • they get emailed weekly about said inventory
    • and they have the purchasing authority

    Wow, that's a complete scam. It's amazing how much equipment in the digital audio space is targeted at selling "analogue fixes" to digital systems in the hopes that the customer doesn't know what digital is or how it works. It's a huge market.



  • Just had a Covetrus "support tech" not be able to install their MSI and to try to blame us he actually made the claim that their MSI file that he had just downloaded and run himself was actually "our responsibility for being part of the operating system."

    WTF dude. Obviously we aren't going to fall for that. How the hell would their application's MSI file be provided by Windows 10?
