Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

One word cancer.

My dear friend is in in hospital and it is looking like she has a brain tumour, friends and family have noticed a difference in her personality, mood etc but we never suspected this.

Totally gutted.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Doing something nice for a few friends and then getting into trouble for breaking a rule that I wasn't even aware existed. Ugh. Won't bother being nice again.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

This idea people seem to have these days that if someone doesn’t like you it’s because you’re “jealous” of them.

No, it could also be the fact you’re sometimes a bit of a <four lettered expletive>.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

People who don't do their jobs. I've been fielding complaints from users, directed at me personally because I manage the system we use to deploy software. In this case, they have requested new software, but I can't deploy it because this person (who is the first person to throw me under the bus given half the chance) hasn't told me hasn't told me he has created a deployment for the software, tested it, or given me access to it. Unfortunately, I can't do much because he outranks me (he is on a different team, but is at the same level as my boss). He is apparently ignoring my boss.

Still, on the plus side, I am on a Health and Safety committee with him. Despite the face he is dealing with potentially dangerous equipment and I am not, I turn up to every meeting I can, and submit all my paperwork on line . He did not. Our previous Health and Safety manager never did anything about this. I don't know what happened, but at the first meeting since the new H&S manager took over, the secretary who was taking the minutes noted he had never turned up for a meeting. The H&S manager said "Thank you". He was at the next meeting, with a face like thunder, and has turned up for every one since.

The funny thing it, I don't think he is lazy. He just takes on so many responsibilities that are strictly speaking not part of his job that he doesn't have time to do his job, and he is someone that turns up at 9am and leaves dead on 5 (not saying this is a bad thing, it's not - he has every right to leave at his contracted finishing time).

<snip>
We use a product from a vendor that comprises the product and a number of frameworks the product runs on. All products are from the same vendor but are dealt with by different teams.

We have an issue with what we see in our product but is actually caused by one of the frameworks. We can't raise a ticket just to the product team, it needs to be raised with the framework team (sort of fair enough) but they then want us to do all sorts for "frameworky" stuff that we really don't have the skills to do, and anyway we bought the product, we should be able to report to the product team and they liase internally with framework folk.

Image you had a fault with a laptop and the laptop team (or you) worked out it was an issue with the power supply but instead of just sending a new PSU you had to open a new ticket with the PSU team who wanted you to do all sorts of engineering tests first.

The related issue is with updates. The product team mandate versions of the framework that can be used with versions of the product, when they update the product there maybe update with framework but do they package the lot together or even allow the installer to choose? And then our security folk say version of framework is unsafe so upgrade it but the new version of the framework isn't supported by the product.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Being told we’re “archaic” and of course “racist” for only offering our services in English. Regardless of the fact the general location we’re in is very much non-multicultural.
