Annoyances of the Day

1) In an effort to further control the speeding that is happening in the parking lot here at work, the property management company has decided to raise the speed bump total from 20 to 40 (rough estimates) in our parking lot. Keep in mind that the original 15 are of the short but severely sharp kind, and the additional 25 are wider and a tad shorter. While this doesn't really bother me in the 4Runner, I am annoyed that this could have been nipped in the bud originally by posting stop signs at areas where traffic patterns cross rather than influence traffic patterns by arbitrarily throwing speed bumps down. I'll try and take a picture at some point to give you an idea of what I'm talking about, but for those of you working at WeatherBug, you KNOW what I'm saying...

2) My Outlook has up and decided not to work anymore. My "OST" file is "corrupt." As a company that relies on Outlook for communication and schedule management, not having Outlook since I got in working has been a real pain. I understand that there is a web version available, but it's just not the same... and I appreciate some of the suggestions, like "use your BlackBerry to do email" but in an effort to conserve my thumbs, I will pass.

My annoyance: When people don't backup their mailbox and then bitch whenever it gets corrupted.

To respond... ahem... it WAS backed up... but my ability to access the OST file was limited by the permissions that they had placed on the folder... so thanks.

Sounds like a shoddy IT department to me.
