Jane

You know what I hate? I hate when you go on vacation and you come back and your computer is “touched”. And I don’t mean touched as in “physically used”. That’s all fine. It’s not mine to own. I mean “touched” as in “special” as in “tweaked”.
I have and use QuarkXpress daily. I have for years. I know it like the back of my hand (whatever that means). When I returned to work, I was trying to use the export to PDF filter I have. Printer descriptions are gone. Gone. All of them. However, they’re there. I see them. I reinstalled them. Still it’s pulling generic PPDs from my computer. I have no idea why. So I have done pdfs (as of late) the “old fashioned” way, drastically slowing down my job and it’s pissing me off.
I noticed, that when I sign on in the morning, the computer is suddenly looking for “Jane’s” name to sign onto the network. I don’t have this set up. I never have. But this led me to the sneaky bastard who was on my machine. So I asked Jane,

What the hell did you do to my Mac?!

Words were exchanged. Unpleasantness. I was accused of being the one who was wrong as I had saved a file in 5.0 instead of 4.0 and that was why she had to use my machine. Yadda yadda yo. Who cares, right? I do. I guess. I don’t mind when people make mistakes on a machine. I do it. I admit to it. But this is annoying. DAMNIT!
But it’s raining. And I love it. I love rainy days. I do.

  4. Throw Jane a “Rules Girls: Book for Online Dating” (sadly, I feel this is the beginning of armegeddon) at her and tell her to get a fuckin’ second job on your way out.

  5. I don’t like it when people touch my computer. My computer is so personal to me…it’s like a diary or something. It’s got my shit on it, just the way I like it. I hate turning it on to find that Remy “did” something. Okay, so it’s OUR computer. But it’s really MY computer. I may need help, I’m aware. Or maybe I just need to get my hands on a nice iBook…all my very own. Someone send me some $$$.
