If you're the IT guy, you know how hard it is to take a vacation. Your users need you, and they have the hardest time coping with your absence.
I asked Kay, our receptionist, to attend to the blog while I was gone.
IT has been gone for way too long.
Partner B to Partner A: Is Ricky back today?
Partner A: No, not until next Monday.
Partner B: What? He was out all last week.
Partner A: No, he wasn't.
They continue on with their conversation as they head out the door to Starbucks.
An accountant, on his way through with his coffee, asks, "When is Ricky back?"
"Next Monday", I reply.
Accountant: "J.C. @!!*&!!!"
Me: "Are you having computer problems?"
Accountant: "No, I just miss him"
