Preparing for Sping Break

First of all I just want everyone to know that Mike Perry loves me the most. There I said it. This spring break is going to be ridiculous because I'm going along with the Perry clan and friends to Clearwater Florida. I guess I'll just go in with no expectations because there's no telling what kinds of mischievous deeds the Red Baron will be up to while he's making margaritas on the beach. One things for sure though, the gingers with their pale skin kissing the afternoon sun are going to need a lot of SPF and aloe to cool their hot backs.

Turns out, today is also my last day at work for co-op. Yeahhh! I came in an hour an twenty minutes late, too (supposed to do prayer thing in morning.. I didn't wake up). No one said a word to me about it when I got in ahahah. I walked in and said high to the tech-guys as usual, those guys are cool as hell. Bill and Mike are like 60 and they're friggin hilarious, they rag on each other all day. Yesterday, I asked Bill for some superglue, and he said he might have some if Mike didn't sniff it all in his free time. I finally got into my office (cubicle) and Bob (crazy phone guy) was already knee deep in sh*t. One of the tech guys was at some company in Kentucky, and he had to spend another day there. Well that's not good, because Bob needs him in Milwaukee the next morning to fix a different machine. That phone conversation is going to be awesome hehe. I'm going to miss it. The smell of coffee and the blinking florescent lights.. I'm going to miss it. But Florida is calling, and I'll be back in June to hopefully give this blog some more scenes from the real office.

First Entry

Well, I started a blog due to the recomendation of one Derek Rusty Johnson. I'm not really sure how these work, but I guess I'll just talk about my work for right now. I'm currently co-oping at a company in Erlanger that makes presses. Anyway, it can be pretty boring sometimes. The most entertainment in the day is usually listening to the customer service guy (Bob) freak-out. Yesterday he started cursing after a conversation on the phone... "Sh*t, EFF, Sh*t!" (I'll keep this PG for all you kids out there) Today was probably the best so far. He was notified yesterday that he would be getting a new laptop, but the tech guy had to take his old one to do it, and he was given a substitute computer in the mean time. Well, today I came in and he was calling the tech guy franticaly (techy only works on certain days). "Ahh, yeah David please call me back, we've got a huge problem." Apparently the server was freaking out, and when Bob went to go open his emails on the substitute laptop, it started to delete all of his emails, one at a time. The worst part, is that it makes a ding sound every time one is trashed, so all of a sudden the laptop just started to rattle off all these dings. By the time Bob was able to stop it, he had lost 80 emails from already angry customers. Later on the day I was able to ask him if they had fixed the email problem and he said something like,"They can't find them anywhere. The server deleted everything that is missing from my account and I have no way of knowing what is gone. I'm pretty much Effed."
Well, that's enough for today. Tune in next week for another episode of James' office.(This isn't really going to be a series)
