1089 parts… just another Sunday night …
1945hrs – Travel into work.
2030hrs – Some bastard parked across our company car park driveway.
2045hrs – Find and pay for another car park, attend work, sign in.
2050hrs – Make up A4-sized “You have parked across a driveway” sheet, and liberally glue to offending windscreen.
2105hrs – Advise project manager that I’m ready to test the network change.
2145hrs – “We have a problem”
2146hrs – “Ummm, it’s a cabling problem.”
2230hrs – “Ummm, we’ll need to do this again in a couple of weeks.”
1000hrs – (following day) Cause: insufficient patch cables on hand to perform change.
Translation: we forgot the frickin cables.
