See, I'm not only the Dairy Manager at work, I'm also the pro-temp IT guy. They like to have me around whenever anything "newfangled" and "digital" needs to be dealt with. This can be anything from debit machines to setting up the network. I enjoy it, and they do reward me nicely.
But tomorrow is tricky because I have to to a couple of things:
- Upgrade a shitty computer that they have,
- Setup the network in the Main Office.
- Install, hook up to the network, and test the new debit terminals,
- Make sure to explain in simple terms what I did so they can understand.
The last one is the worst part.
Trying to explain to people that you can't just "put the disk in and everything is magically ok."is almost infuriating. They seem to think that I can get all of this done in about an hour ( I laughed at that part) and that it's all going to work wonderfully the first time. (Can you tell they've never done anything with computers before?) I'm also not at my regular location, all this is at the other store - so it's not like I can just stop and check on my stuff if need be.
But I'll get it done - and look like a genius in the end.
It's just going to be maddening, that's all.
I can deal.
