Eric sucks

Had a call from a user the other day, thought I’d share:
“I have tried to print my open orders to Xerox printer, but nothing is coming out. Can you check to see if anything is in the cube?”

In second place, we have the guy who asked if I could change something in his ‘file’ on the terminal server. It’s amazing how leaving a few letters out can leave me scratching my head. “Oh, you mean profile!” But really, do the details matter? I mean, it’s not like a dry ink bottle and a dry ink waste bottle are all that different – they both contain basically the same thing…. right?

I keep getting surprised at movies I rent. I watched Without a Paddle last night and it was actually a good movie. Either that, or the with all the crap Hollywood’s been putting out lately it just seemed like a good movie. I’d give it a B- I suppose.

Manchurian Candidate was just Conspiracy Theory all over again. Still decent I guess. Another B-

Blade 2 was disappointing. I’m pretty sure the days of good trilogies are gone. I’ve heard that the third installment is even worse. As long as it doesn’t top the Matrix for “Biggest Trilogy Letdown Ever” Uhg. C+

I actually went and saw a movie at a theater! Sideways wasn’t as good as everyone kept saying it was, but it was a good story with decent acting and some funny bits to it. At least rent it when it comes out if you haven’t seen it yet. B

If you thought I had too much time on my hands, you obviously haven’t seen this guy.

Not that I ever comment on politics, but Bush is brilliant.
” Some in our country think that Social Security is a trust fund — in other words, there’s a pile of money being accumulated. That’s just simply not true. The money — payroll taxes going into the Social Security are spent. They’re spent on benefits and they’re spent on government programs. There is no trust. We’re on the ultimate pay-as-you-go system — what goes in comes out. And so, starting in 2018, what’s going in — what’s coming out is greater than what’s going in. It says we’ve got a problem. And we’d better start dealing with it now. The longer we wait, the harder it is to fix the problem.

Secondly, if you’re a person who is retired or near retirement, nothing will change, there is enough money. You’re in good shape. I know there are some who have heard talk about Social Security around the country here, saying, oops, he’s going to take away my check. That’s not going to happen. I don’t care what the rhetoric is, what the mailings say, what the TV ads say, you’re in good shape. It’s the younger workers who ought to be asking the members of the Congress and the President of the United States, what are you going to do to fix the problem. ”

See? Brilliant. Why didn’t anyone else see this coming? What he’s saying is that Social Security is broken, but if you’re an old person, don’t worry about it, you’ll be fine… we’re just going to screw the generation after you. They don’t vote as much as you… so you’re fine for now. We can drop a bomb in a 3 foot wide hole to level a building halfway around the world, but we still don’t quit grasp basic accounting.

And we’ll leave you with this parting gift
