I hold myself and the other students that work in the HDC in a fairly high regard when it comes to job effectiveness. So it pains me greatly whenever, rarely, one of us messes something up.
However, there is no level of incompetence that can compare to the "job effectiveness" on display from the student "workers" in the computing labs. I am firmly convinced that these students are striving to be as idiotic and useless as possible. I used to believe that this was some sort of sick system designed to punish students who may make the mistake of asking for help in one of the labs - but now I believe that this "quest for outstanding acheivement," so to speak, has it's aim squarely focused on causing immediate and debilitating insanity in my person. There can be no other answer - it's obvious that Commie spies are at work. They've failed in their previous quest to bring about the destruction of the United States, and now they have to settle for spoiling one of it's great natural resources ;)
I've learned to look at the CallerID portion of the phone as it rings, and it usually has time to display the number of who is calling right as I answer. If I see "SCC," "WERC," "BLOC," or "WCL" I know to brace myself for possible aneurysm-causing stupidity. If you've seen/heard Lewis Black's comedy album, you'll know what I mean when I say that most of the time, the things I hear coming from the phone rival "If it weren't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college..." - if you have no idea what I'm talking about... you should go see/rent/buy Lewis Black's comedy album. It's hilarious. You'll love it. You can thank me later.
As a side note, Spanish is really starting to fuck with me. I just caught myself typing "Tu" when I meant to type "You" - holy crap basket.
