I can't help it those people are morons and I don't want them in my internets.

They need their own special moron internets. Free helmet with every new service agreement.


I thought it would be the helmets signing up to the moronternet.

It's certainly better than spending 20 minutes trying to work out how to describe your crap in 140 characters or less.

I can't help but shudder when I go on pinterest, probably for the same reasons as B9. :/ Sadly, I can't go on facebook now without somebody posting about it. I don't care what you cooked unless it's going in my effin' belly. I like crafts so I can't really dis that, but I never post my stuff online.

it's like anything, shitty people use it for shitty things, awesome people use it for awesome things. you can pick which kind of person you want to be.


Really? Why do so many people choose to be stupid, then?
I mean, the existence of Pinterestwitteretecetera kind of blows a leg off your theory, doesn't it?

no, because i use all of those things to be and follow awesome people. people tend to self-segregate. follow less shitty people.

That reminds me: if I'm following people, that's kind of creepy, isn't it?

"Hi, you don't know me, but I'm following you"
"Hello. What name shall I put on the restraining order?"

It's a bit embarrassing how long it took me to put this into play. I won't take all of the blame though, because social conventions guilted me into a lot of the useless people I followed or was "friends" with. I cleaned my Twitter out, and it is seriously a constant barrage of cool shit now. I use Facebook to keep up with buddies scattered around the country/world, so unfortunately that will continue to be full of stupid shit. I've been meaning to check out Pinterest too. When I first saw it, I hated it, but I assume that's because the person who showed it to me was interested in really stupid shit.

More or less... but that's apparently our company standard.

So, the president's wife works here, right? And I've met her on easily a dozen occasions. Every time, I make it a point of telling her my name and position - and I wear my snazzy, shiny, brass name tag to drive the point home in an engraved print. My name and title are also on the plate that hangs outside my door (she spends insane amounts of time in meetings right across the hall) and in the signature of every email that leaves my outbox.

Today, she sent an email:

Quote

Dear webmaster,

I realize despite my multiple years on campus, we've never met, and I'm sure you don't know who I am, but if you would please assist me with a small issue - I am unable to access my email account despite many attempts to enter and re-enter my account name and password. Please let me know what I need to do to reset the account.

Sincerely,
[Super important sounding titles here]


Part of me wanted to play dumb.
Part of me was sad to be reminded that I'm a disposable peon.
Part of me developed momentary nerd rage.

But then I remembered that the email server is not my responsibility, so I passed the buck on to the IT department and out of my inbox. Ta-ta, princess. Enjoy your stay in help desk hell.

I am hoping that email she sent was not from the email box she couldn't get into...

Surprisingly, no. It was from a gmail account.
