At least third stringers

Warning, non-game related post!

Without going into boring specifics, about one quarter of my job is to support software that banks and credit unions use to image checks and submit deposits. It is just as exciting as it sounds. It is also relatively easy as the software isn't very complicated to install or use.

At least not for me.

On holidays and pseudo-holidays like today the regular employees always find a way not to work. This leaves the third and forth string people in charge and they always end up calling. They don't know how the software works, they don't know how to enter a URL into a browser to get me connected and it is my fault that no one bothered to train then.

I suppose that I should be happy, it is just this type of incompetence that pays the bills. If everyone knew what they were doing and computers always did what they should I wouldn't have a job.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
