Moments I'm not proud of...

Today, I may have said to an employee "Just change it, make it happen, I don't care (insert name), it's just fucking font!!" while maybe raising my voice. Firstivly, you don't argue with your supervisor, which she was. What I say goes.

I would like to think that in comparison to like, the President's job, this particular font incident, was as important as going to war or something. I mean, Arial is a common font, and all of Microsoft's programs have it, so arguing with me that it magically changed from Arial to Tahoma when you moved something from Word to Publisher, is just crap, and telling me the font isn't available in Publisher vs. admitting you made a stupid freaking mistake, will just get you cussed at. Damn.

But, it wasn't as important as war, I just lost my cool. Actually the rest of the department said they are suprised it took me two years to blow up on this particular employee, so that has to mean something, right?

I'm awaiting my call from H.R.

Hopefully it won't go anywhere.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
