Computer Woes

Our place of employment just implemented a house wide computer charting system that has aged everyone ten years in the matter of five days, and I'm fairly certain that someone has kicked their dog as a result. There were tears, nuclear meltdowns, and nurses vowing to enroll for classes that will put them in the exciting field of fast food preparation.

I nearly bit the head off one of the Happy Helpertons who was trying to help me figure out why I couldn't do the simple task of printing labels. When you see a sick nurse trying to manage a new computer system that has more bells and whistles than a spaceship, it's not a good idea to be perky, happy, and cheerful. That is almost begging to get your ass kicked. Or at least coughed on.

Technology sucks.

So you have this system installed?. Good luck!

That just about sums it up.

It's good to visualize kicking the Happy Helperton's ass. I visualize that kind of stuff at work and then people wonder why I'm smiling... it creeps them out :)
