There’s nothing I enjoy quite as much as coming into work the morning after an eighteen or twenty hour workday spent rebuilding a LAN to hear the local support monkey tell me that the reason I.T. puts all these firewalls and security measures in place is because we’re all just lazy, and don’t like to work.
Not a single thing.
Ever had a doctor tell you to wear your seatbelt? That’s ’cause the people who’ve been in car accidents go to the hospital and that’s like work, and who wants that? It’s sort like how parents diaper and toilet-train their kids, right? Because the only real job of parents is to mop up a river of shit, and most parents are just slackers.
Right now I’m watching our shiny new firewall methodically block a portscan coming, curiously, from a production machine (no, local support monkey, thank you) and really looking forward to the extra couple of hours of slacking I’ve got ahead of me this evening.
