Welcome To The Bitchery

Case of the mothertruckin' Mondays

So daylight savings, so I’m sleepy. But got to work eventually. Got here, my computer was telling me “Your password expires in 14 days”. Not unusual- they have our passwords set to expire every 90 days, so no biggie. I figure, hey, I can change my password now, and then by Friday I will be used to my new password (they have our main password synched up to like 90% of applications we use) and won’t forget it over the weekend. LET’S DO THIS! Change my password, new password is accepted, I think everything is kosher. Start working, running reports on last week’s productivity, as you do when your a boss and it’s Monday. Get to one reporting service and it won’t accept my new password. Like the semi-caffeinated person I am, I typed my new password one too many times, and got locked out. But not just out of that reporting application, oh know. Remember when I said “main password synched up to like 90% of applications we use”? YEAH I CAN’T DO SHIT NOW. Can’t get into anything. Can’t get into the I.T. help desk website where I could change my password because it requires my password WHICH IS LOCKED. I’m afraid to leave my desk because if I lock my computer I may not be able to get back in. I am currently listening to some chamber music on hold, because the wait time on the I.T. help line is 25 minutes. Had to borrow someone else’s call in number for a 9 am call I couldn’t host because I couldn’t get into my WebEx/ call in account. And I'm about out of coffee. ALRIGHT I GET IT UNIVERSE IT IS MONDAY. THANKS FOR THE REMINDER. UGH.
