Why am I such a baby?

Why am I such a baby? Someone sent me a flame mail about our group’s site. It’s someone in the group, but not someone I work with. Basically, the trashed everything I’d done on the site for three months and said it was unusable. Normally, this wouldn’t bother me, and I’m not sure why this did. Is it because I spent a lot of time on it, built some amazingly cool AOLserver stuff, did it all myself, configured the box from scratch (installed RedHat, AOLserver, PostgreSQL, etc), and then pored over it every day for a month (in between my real work)? Or, was it the dismissive tone? “and I hate the studio site.. ” Wow, thanks, that was constructive, baby. That told me what you think is REALLY wrong with the site. Educated, and thorough in your criticism.

Or, wait, is it because it’s the Friday before Memorial Day and I’m the only person in my group left in the building, because I had to go to some stupid two hour meeting AFTER solving the world’s problems and continuing to make this company millions? Oh maybe… Maybe I just need a vacation and two Exedrin.

  1. Your rant has touched me, for I too am a baby.
    Rather than dispute over your long list of misfortune, or my equally long list of misdemeanors (damn you, Sharon Smith, burn in hell!) lets focus on whats really the problem here.
    Should you have allowed such a novice to destroy your lifes work?
    Should I have shat all over my supervisors desk? No.
    Did the people who demeaned & belittled us deserve a swift a fiery vengeance?
    But accountability, Mr. Kevin, thats the issue at hand. As long as we have learned from our mistakes… thats all that really matters.
    I’m positive that by this time you have updated your virus & hacker protection programs, as I have learned the valuable lesson of DNA testing.

    Farewell & good luck on your future endeavours,
