Little Things You Hate

I fucking hate couriers and their bullshit 4 fucking days to deliver something to me that's coming from..........an hour away by car. Oh holy shit, that's so fucking far away. Bit better than the 4 day wait on another box only to find the lazy pricks hadn't bothered to even come to my house at all.....but lodged a "you weren't home" with their company (it was Fastway btw). Since they didn't bother and show up even, there was no note left on the door. Then, in their brilliance, the ATL, which should've meant there was no "you weren't home" anyway, was fulfilled and left at my neighbours house. These people....wtaf.

Mindless bureaucratic bullshit. Having my music player taken by security and having to process paperwork and have it signed off by a very high up to get it back...

FFS. Its my fucking device, its not as if they'd take any responsibility if it was nicked... "its in the policy" is the only answer I get. "Why is it in the policy and what are you trying to achieve?" is only met with "it in the policy".

FFS you mindless wankers.
Security hasn't forgotten you from your previous encounter.

I get this from Austpost but at least most of the time it gets sent up to the local Post office.

Sorry - more context needed here.

It is written in the department's security policy that if you leave an "attractive or portable item" on your desk over a weekend security will take it to avoid it being stolen. But if it is stolen they of course take no responsibility - so my take on that is mind your own fucking business then.

But when I went to get it, they contradicted the form i got and said its because its a storage device i might use to steal files with. But its ok to have on my desk, and to put in a drawer or take home every night... They nick any USB sticks you leave out (or in the case of my last breach notice, a micro SD card adapter with no card in it they just thought was a USB stick...).

These guys are not hired for their independent thought abilities and unfortunately for me this reliably presses my buttons.



Perhaps the public service is not a great career choice for someone who cant handle mindless bureaucracy...

Have you go the chord tagged?

I feel some kind of message is being sent to you. Perhaps Canberra reciprocates your feelings. I was on the road for work way back in my public service days, visiting another office in canberra. I had quite long hair at the time and when I arrived at the security desk with my luggage for the visit it caused quite a security stir as I rummaged around looking for my security card etc. Being a self important wanker, once the apologies for their brusque behaviour were flowing, I made the flippant "I'm sure it happens to all the visitors with long hair..." sometimes they just know you're a git that doesn't belong there. Though you sound lIke the pubic service is perfect for you.

Nah, someone has to make a sacrifice for the greater good and enact change from the inside. Become the union rep and give'em hell.

Urrgh, that's a horrible thought... I'd probably have to take it seriously to do that!!

Nah, rant over all better now. Now to listen to some tunes on my "ipod" and not worry about annoying people.

Although it will get you fired, leave a USB killer on another desk for security to pick up.

Or glue one to a desk or the floor, like the old coin trick.

I think i found some floppy discs in a box of old crap i thought i threw out years ago. Will have to leave some out and see if they're taken.
You could always go stealth with a USB drive.

Can't see the security guy taking this.

ahh IT departments. I have my old desktop running as a Virtual machine on my own personal workstation (thats there just as a decoy for IT).

GM was down visiting "who the fuck let you have four 24" monitors and this workstation?" (quad xeon, 16gb ram, 1tb ssd) told him i bought it all myself. he's jealous.
