The power of observation, I guess

So this morning at IHOP the server asked if I wanted my usual, and I said, uh, what is my usual? and she said eggs over medium and pancakes with link sausage, and I said, how do you know that? I’ve only had that once here and you weren’t my server, and she said, when folks come in two Sundays in a row, they always get the same thing.

It was kinda creepy. But the food was good.


How my workday is going

I just spent several minutes staring at the names of two permissions groups, trying to figure out

  1. why there were two groups with the same name, and
  2. how anyone had MANAGED to save two groups with the same name. When I try that, the system bitch-slaps me.

Turns out one had a hyphen where the other had an underscore.

It is by such simple means that I can be trapped utterly into the world of Must Figure This Out Or It Will Kill Me!!!.

I am an easy mark.


On the possibility of going to India to train people

Katharine: I think you should go to India.

Me: I don’t really want to go to India.

[pause]

Me: I would go to India, though, if it was necessary.

[pause]

Me: Why don’t you want to go?

Katharine: Because I’ve already been on a business trip for this group, and you’re male.

This is the type of iron-clad logic that drives our world.
