HemiBeers Posted March 25, 2020 Share Posted March 25, 2020 (edited) So to combat Covid, our large government organization is implementing work from home. I'm an IT guy. Today we were sent home with our laptops so we could do that. Late today, I got a text message from my boss that a health related division of our government wants me at their location from 8-10am tomorrow. This division is the same division preaching 'stay safe, stay home', but I guess that doesn't apply when they need their IT security blankey. It's alot of people in one building (you know the large groups of people we are supposed to avoid). On top of this, I'm in the older demographic with diabetes and considered higher risk for Covid. This division also called me into work Sunday morning to set up some equipment and wasted two hours of my time by not transporting their hardware. Sorry folks, no hardware to pull out of my butt. And they had me back Monday morning first thing, 'just in case'. Monday morning, i did nothing for a hour and bailed. Tomorrow is no assignment, but 'just in case'. I used to work at this division and I'm like their security blanket for a 2 year old (they are hopelessly needy). At some point I would think the highly educated people of this division would realize they're contradicting the advice their handing out and realize they're not making any f***ing difference whatsoever. Folks, working in government is truly like working in a f***ing Dilbert cartoon. Edited March 25, 2020 by HemiBeers 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
