Incompetence

...or Nepotism Must Run Rampant at My Company.

One of my job duties, it seems, is to answer the email of stupid people. That's a given for almost any position these days, but sometimes that incompentence comes from the most surprising of sources.

Today I got an email from a new manager in the Information Technology asking me to help her connect recording adapter to her phone/computer.

Granted, the thing isn't a common piece of equipment, but it isn't a Flux Capacitor. But you would THINK that someone with a Masters of Information Tecnology. NOOOOO.

In fact, not one, not two, not three, but FOUR...I repeat...FOUR Information Technology Executives couldn't figure out how to attach this device...and require my assistance. It must take an even more advanced degree to read one sheet of paper with a diagram saying "put the pink plug in the pink hole...put the green plug in the green hole...and then put your phone cord into the little phone hole..." and understand what the hell they are talking about.

I guess I need to lose some brain cells if I want to aspire to become an executive; I think I'd rather be a peon.

Maybe it's some kind of early April fools joke?

I hope.
