Modern Middle Manager
Primarily my musings on the practical application of technology and management principles at a financial services company.
Dirt Doesn't Need Luck

OK, I don't know what that means, either.

Moments from today:

Coming in at 10am because one of my staff forgot what the words "quality control" mean in English. Tomorrow he gets to learn.

Picking a fight with the Banking Services Manager because his damn staff keeps trying to install instant messaging software but our security only lets it half-install, thus (*Q#@&$^(#*&^$ up their systems and calling the help desk for support.

Meeting with the Real Estate department because they bought into the thin client strategy wholeheartedly and I rewarded them with a Harry and David's basket that sent them into a blissful sugary coma. Mmm, moose munch...

Waiting 15 minutes for a status meeting with my boss -- he didn't show.

Called a guy at the appointed time who's heading the new data center building project to try to answer a question he had raised last week and subsequently forgotten.

I need sleep.
