Feeling Like A Dumb Ass [14 Apr 2005|07:00pm]
Who the hell injures themselves working at a computer store, ME, that's who. I had my hand inside a new case today and was popping out the metal plate so we could install a floppy drive. I went to push it out with a screwdriver and when it popped off my hand scraped on the side. I pulled my hand out and wasn't expecting much, it really didn't hurt and wasn't bleeding too much. But when I looked at my hand there was a big gaping gash and all I could see was fat tissue. The cut was about 2 inches long and was spread open about an inch. The other 2 guys working freaked out when I showed them and we all figured I should go to the hospital. So I get there and spend 4 hours in the waiting room, then they take my to the back, where I spend another hour waiting. I ended up getting 8 stitches and a new reason to hate computers.

Insanity wraps my mind like a child in their mother's arms.
Days blend together as if to never begin or end.
Fall, get up, fall again.
Try, fail, try again.
Too scared to stop, too tired to go on.
Cold, alone, angry, and distraught.
But I'm surviving.....

Great Quote [07 Apr 2005|11:13pm]
Was watching TV tonight and heard a great line describing this counrty. "This is not the America that America stands for". I don't think that could be anymore well put.

Customers Piss Me Off [07 Apr 2005|09:34am]
Some people that buy computers expect way more than they're going to get. They think that just because it's under warranty it's going to be fixed "free of charge" no matter what's wrong with it. I'm sick of people going off on me because they fucked something up and we charged them to go out and fix it. I'm sorry but if you buy a computer and we have to go out and reinstall Windows because your employee was looking at too much porn and got a virus that completely fucked up your operating system, you're going to have to pay for it. I tell you what, if you don't like that you can go buy a computer from Best Buy and call them about your problems, but they're going to give you less help than I am. I'm tired of these people acting as shitty as possible and expecting me to kiss their ass. I don't kiss anyone's ass (except maybe a judge). I had these people come to me several times in a couple days after we fixed their computer bitching and complaining that it wasn't working. "Your sound isn't working because you're plugging the speakers into the modem mam" "And your email is working fine, you're not able to send that email because the address you're trying to send it to does not exist". Sometimes people bring shit back because we did do something wrong and fucked up, shit happens. But a good 90% of the time the people could save their self a trip back here if they would just double check and make sure THEY aren't doing something wrong. The funny thing is, most of the people that come in here yelling and freaking out are the people who's computers are working fine, it's the user that's fucked up. To steal a quote from Clerks, "This job would be great if it wasn't for the fucking customers".

Sometimes You Just Got To Say Fuck It [15 Mar 2005|10:31am]
I tried to get my boss to let me do a complete wipe and reinstall on a computer that came into the shop. The customer is fine with it, he just wants his shit working. The boss is sure we can get it going without wiping it and it's driving me nuts. This computer is so screwed it's beyond repairing in my opinion. Load up the internet and it crashes, load up My Computer and it crashes, load up Control Panel and it crashes. Hell, this damn thing crashes when you boot into safe mode. The virus scan turned up 110 viruses and was only able to remove 6. So that leaves us techs spending countless hours removing 104 viruses manually. Now it seems that it would be a much more viable option to just do a wipe and reinstall beings that it would only take an hour or less and we charge more for that anyway. Oh well, if he wants me to waste time with this thing I guess that's what I'll do.

Great Night [12 Mar 2005|11:34pm]
Well I found out a lot tonight. I thought the owner of the store was just looking for someone to manage it in the future, but he's looking for someone to completely take it over. And it looks like me and Dylan might be what he has been looking for. He is wanting to retire completely but not wanting the business to close. He thinks we will make it grow and thrive, and wants to hand it over to us in the near future. All we have to do is make the place turn over a bigger profit and prove that we know how to do it. That shouldn't be a problem beings that the store already has a good reputation and between me and Dylan, there isn't a PC problem we can't troubleshoot. I have never been so ready to take on a challenge in my life.

Not sure how much longer this job can possibly last. There's no way this guy can afford to keep the doors to this place open with the very little business he's getting. The location of this place is probably the worst part. The entrance to the parking lot looks more like some back ally. On top of that, there's no sign out by the highway to indicate anything's back here. This really sucks, but is typical of my luck. I finally get a job I enjoy and work with people I actually get along with, now it looks like I'm going to lose it because of reasons that are completely out of my control. Then again, maybe something good will happen. Either way I guess I'll ride this thing as long as I can.

Can Someone Throw Me a Break Here?? [01 Mar 2005|09:24am]
What kind of crap luck does someone have to have to go to work on thier first day, only to get sent home 10 minutes later because the place has a power failure?? Waking up at 7 in the morning really sucks ass. But waking up at 7 in the morning for no reason is pure hell.

Moving Forward [27 Feb 2005|12:41am]
Everything has continued on a steady course for the better. I know I shouldn't be getting too worked up about it but that's hard to do.

I got a job today. It's not paying as much as I would like but I am actually going to enjoy it. I'll be working in a computer shop troubleshooting and such. Building and repairing PCs is what I'm best at but I've never had someone give me a chance to prove what I can do.

Every time I turn around I see that moving here was the best decision I've ever made. I still know about certain people that plan to complicate my life down the road, but I can't sit and worry about that all the time and expect to enjoy my life at all. I don't fear the demons that are coming for me. Fuck 'em all, they're just pissed off cause my life has meaning without them.
