As My Mother Pointed Out

There were a number of typos, misspellings, and completely incorrect grammar moments in my previous blog. There is a reason for that....I was creating it while still in bed Sunday morning on my Blackberry Bold, so I have an excuse. However, please forgive me especially since I was pointing out the errors that the staff at the Queen Mary made.

I would also like to note that I have updated my blog to include links to the other HCBCs as per the rules of our undocumented charter. Since I was made the official "Metro-stop Counter" and VP of Marketing and I think Parliamentarian, then I should probably start following the rules. And as my first act as Parliamentarian, I'll get those rules documented and approved by the COO, CTO, CIO, and whoever else wants a vote in the rules...we are a democracy, if I'm not mistaken.

Now, if I can take a few moments to vent about things that have annoyed me thus far today...
  • My computer has completely blocked access to the Queen's blog. I can only view it via my Blackberry or wait until I am home and view it on my MacBook.
  • I live in a building that is supposed to be animal-free, as in nobody is supposed to have animals. I don't have a problem with pets. I love pets. Every body's dogs seem to really like me and cats tolerate me. However, I am annoyed with the lady who lives on my floor who has a little dog in her apartment and who it seems can't quite get it outside in the morning, but rather lets it pee on the carpet by the elevator or in the elevator.
  • Why can't we have paper actually delivered to the room where the copier/printer is located? Why do I have to walk to the other side of the building to get the case of paper and why can't somebody offer to help me carry said case to the copier/printer room? And why can't the case of paper that I schlepped across the building be the plain copier paper and NOT three-hole punch paper?

I am hoping I have resolved issue #1. That is really unacceptable.

Issue #2 needs to be reported. Rule breaking is so not allowed.

Issue #3 I have experienced before and is super-annoying.

You should buy your copy paper from a particular office supply company that sells Staples :)

very legitimate irritations! I'd report the dog...I would've let it slide if it weren't for the accidents in the hallway.
Glad your back & had a good time.

I do NOT like AT ALL when my computer dictates what I can or can NOT see so issue #1 would probably be top priority........
Issue#2.....I would not report but apporach the situation one on one in order to resolve the situation w/o getting her kicked out....I would die over a situation with my Sasha
Issue#3.....must be addressed UNACCEPTABLE

Darn, I have wanted to get my hands on a Blackberry Bold. How come I didn't notice you had one?
