Infinitely Loopy, Part 8

| Portland, OR, USA | Working | April 5, 2013

(Our email server for the entire company has gone down. I am aware of the outage and get my small team to work on it immediately. Not five minutes goes by when the phone rings…)

Me: “Yes?”


Me: “Right, I know. I just texted you that the servers are down. I’m working on it right now.”

Boss: “You need to resolve this ASAP.”

Me: “Uh… I am.”

Boss: “When will you have it fixed?”

Me: “I don’t know. It just went down less than five minutes ago. I was in the middle of trying to figure out what was wrong when you called.”

Boss: “You need to fix it ASAP!”

Me: “Yeah, I know; I am working on it.”

Boss: “Also, you need to email the entire IT department to let everyone know there is an outage.”

Me: “…Uh, how praytell do you want me to do that?”

Boss: “Email the IT group!”

Me: “Think about what you just asked me to do.”

Boss: “Oh… uh, guess you can’t email, can you?”

Me: “Nope. So, can I go back to fixing this now?”

Boss: “Well, make sure you email when it’s back up!”
