Here are a few things that have gotten my proverbial britches in a wad lately:
Clients standing me up for a conference call with nary a warning. I know these guys are important muckety mucks, but I know one of them has a Blackberry. Just send an SOS message if you’re stuck in an unexpected all-day meeting, something along the lines of, “Sorry, must reschedule.” I feel so rejected.
Rude executive assistants who could care less that you have a life and children outside of work. (Not at my company, which is extremely accomodating to parents, but at a client’s.)
And, in a word, spam. My blog has been hit with an amazing amount of comment spam this week, starting on Mother’s Day. Thanks to seeing the program Jennifer at Spaghetti Harvest was using, I downloaded Spam Karma, a donationware program which has been taking a bite out of comment spam since I installed it. So far it’s worked without a hitch and you may want to check it out if you use WordPress for your blog.
And that is it. I’ve got my anti-pukey mojo turned on high, so I’m going to enjoy my day off!
