What I’ve learnt today (from yesterday most likely) is not to have sex with a sick person.
No matter if he says it’s OK, he’s not feeling that bad etc, do not succumb. JJ did not seem to be that sick and he was the one to start the whole thing and I did try to stop him (but I am only human). So, today I am feeling feverish / tired and cranky… And of course I blame him and his South African germs… I’ll find a way to make him pay for that (with a huge grin on my face)… That reminds me of the episode that Monika is sick, but doesn’t want to admit it and tries to have sex with Chandler in Friends:
On a very different matter, I’m quite annoyed with one of my colleagues (another reason that I’m cranky). I’ve been working (a lot) on a project to create a new extension for one of our software packages. I had a small data sample and I was happily working on it.
When, I finally thought that it was working OK, I thought of giving it a try and test it on a whole client’s dataset. The software kept crashing without an explanation. That really got me worried (/annoyed), so I tried to find the error. I spent a whole afternoon and the following morning trying to use debug messages and compiling the code over and over again to see where it might be going wrong.
After many attempts, I realized that the code was crashing when work was done on a very big table (I’m not going to go too much into detail) and I saw that the server I was working on had only 3MB free space! My (quite thick) colleague had the idea of copying 10GB of files on that server the day before, after my line manager specifically told him not to copy these files there. He actually copied the same data in two different servers! And it’s not the first time he’s doing something similar.
That cost me a whole day of frustration when I have a deadline coming…
Is it justified if I go and sneeze over his shoulder?
