Like a Hoover

So, why have I posted four (now five) times today? Because today sucks. I got hit in the head with an “emergency” caused by someone else, found by me, which I then had to fix while everyone stood over my shoulder and watched. I had to explain several dozen times what the problem was, why it was bad, what we had to do to fix it, and then have them all look at me like I was behind glass sitting in a tire swing with my hand full of my own waste. Then, not only did I have to go into histrionics explaining it, I had to try and work on someone else’s code while being watched, which is not good for my blood pressure. So, now, it’s all fixed. QA’s looking at it, which shouldn’t take long, and doesn’t require me to do anything except wait by the phone for bugs. So, I’m sitting here doing nothing, listening to the blood pound in my ears and wanting desperately to be somewhere else.
