I have a temper

So yesterday morning I decided to call computer services about the weird error message I get every time I open Outlook.  (Outlook is in recovery mode. Do you wish to log on, work offline, or cancel?)  The guy VNCed to my computer, reinstalled Outlook, and proceeded to import my archived emails onto the server again.

Turns out this filled my space on the server, and I was then unable to email anyone.  I got a bit frustrated while trying to respond to a student in my online class, and when I called computer services back, about halfway through my explanation of the problem I found myself screaming profanities at the hapless computer services guy.  Not even the one who screwed it up in the first place.

Eventually he got me to the original guy, who after quite a bit of messing around was able to move all the old files back to the archive and free enough server space for me to work again.  Later, I called back, asked for second guy at whom I’d blown up, and apologized.  I felt like a dick.

Now my email works more or less properly, although it’s lost my autocomplete file, so I have to type in people’s whole addresses.

    Well, at least you didn’t break a chair at him.
