Micro-rebellion [Apr. 25th, 2007|11:19 am]
Observation for the day:

If someone doesn't follow your detailed directions precisely, it may not be because they didn't understand or you weren't clear in your explanation.

It may be because they thought your directions were stupid and obnoxious, and they decided that, while they would still perform the appointed task, it wasn't worth their while to bother with the idiot details you attached to it.

And now, I'm off to misapprehend some details.

Funny thing is that I am the security admin for the test environment; nobody gets in without my say-so. I hold all the keys to all the locks, except the one on the physical door to the room with the machine with the button that says “start end-of-day now”.

So I get to wreak merry havoc as king and god of my own little domain… until I have to beg the castellan two castles over for the keys to the bathroom. Then we go through the “who’s on first?” routine.
