It's been a while since I've had a user who I dread seeing tickets from, but we've got a good one now. It's like tech-supporting my granny.
Today a colleague was troubleshooting why her built-in webcam was't working. After about an hour on a remotes session, he figured it out. The laptop lid was closed.

She's a department head for a science based company and can't be older than 40.

This is very common with doctors. They learn so much in their field how to do anything else slides right out.

I did college radio. EAS was drilled into us (pun intended ). The thing is most stations can't send out EAS warnings, the most they can do is send out weekly tests but that's it. Everything else originates elsewhere, almost always from the NWS in our case (the only thing that didn't was the monthly test, which came from another station).

e: actually, I think the monthly tests did come from the NWS. Don't recall exactly where, but we weren't the point of origin for them. We just did it whenever they came in.

Apology never came, the new drama is that our state re-accreditation is here; well, it was here weeks ago but they haven't finished the paperwork yet. They apparently do this every ~5 years, I think, and there's an "accountability committee" that meets weekly to discuss and prepare everything for this accreditation. Of the 200+ reports that are included in this, one is apparently a technology plan. In the 2.5 years I've been working here, this has never once been mentioned to me. This report is being submitted this weekend.

Boss comes blasting into my office this morning ranting about how we're going to take a huge hit because I haven't submitted a technology plan, and demanding that I go back through all the documents that my predecessors left to see if any of them have a technology plan on file since 2011. All I can find is paperwork to start a technology plan committee in 2013 that never got completed.

So, now I'm apparently responsible for a plan that none of the three previous TCs did any work on and that was not mentioned to me until it was the day before they're submitting it.

Seriously, gently caress this place right to death. I can't wait to get out of here.
