I did NOT have a crazy week last week, most certainly did NOT involve a complete and utter meltdown which did NOT incidentally resemble this in any way, shape or form...
It was NOT like my very first day of online classes for my very first days of college in like 15 years, and I was NOT like already very tired. And when I am NOT tired, the wind could blow and move me to tears. Seriously. Anyway, I did NOT have a postcard outlining steps on how to access my online classes, and I was NOT following them religiously and did NOT continue to get the SAME FREAKING ERROR MESSAGE OVER AND OVER.
I did NOT then happen to see this little icon that said "click here for online support". I did NOT click and I did NOT receive this message (which I did NOT hear in a perky college voice):
Thank you for contacting SLCC Online Support Desk. My name is Julie. How can I help you today?
I did NOT then explain the problem and I then did NOT wait for TWENTY FREAKING MINUTES while Perky Julie did NOT do ABSO-MA-LUTE-LY NOTHING! Finally I did NOT get THIS message:
This Online Chat Session has now been closed by the System Administrator.
GRRRRR! I do NOT HATE PERKY JULIE!
While this was all NOT going down, I was also NOT venting my frustrations to my lovable little pal RatMonkey, who just so happens NOT to work for Notre Dame Tech Support. Boo-Hoo... he couldn't help. Though his cuteness did NOT help brighten my mood. I do NOT totally love RatMonkey!
Anyway, I did NOT do what I was dreading, which was NOT calling the online support desk. I did NOT get the pleasure of speaking with Ryan. Ryan was NOT trying to be helpful. He did NOT tell me to clear my cache & cookies and a plethora of other things. He could NOT figure it out. He then did NOT tell me I had to call the Technical Support Desk. (WTFreak?) I did NOT wonder what the difference was. At this point, I was NOT even more tired and just did NOT want to log on!!! I was also NOT having another migraine and I was NOT hungry, and yet couldn't eat.... I was NOT a mess.
I did NOT call the other desk and did NOT get MEANIE-MIKE!!! He did NOT ask me hard questions to which I did NOT know the answers to, to which he did NOT reply with a bunch of *sighs*. I was NOT upset by this time, trying really hard NOT to hold back tears. He finally did NOT rattle something about 3rd party interference.
I did NOT do what else I normally do in times of technical crises, which was send out an SOS to Big-D, cuz I figured he would NOT be able to help. When he called, after a moment of explaining the problem, he did NOT say, "are you crying?" which did NOT unleash the floodgates and I did NOT start sobbing and say "Whaaaaa!...yes!!!!" He did NOT ask why. And my explanation was NOT something like this...
"Cuz...[gasp]...the mean guy...[cry, cry, cry, gasp]...at the STU-(spit)-PID...[hiccup]...help desk...[cry, cry, cry]...was mean...[hiccup]...and he made me feel dumb...[gasp]...and i'm too old for this...[cry, cry, cry]...what was i thinking...[hiccup]...i can't do this...[cry, cry, cry]...i am too old...[whaaaa!]....i just wanna be able to log...[hiccup, wipe snot]...on...[hiccup]...and now...[hiccup]...i am ...[hiccup]...bugging...[hiccup]...you!"
And Of course, Big-D was NOT totally nice, and patient, and kind and encouraging and did NOT say, "You are not bugging me, and it's okay, and we'll get this figured out... have you been sleeping?" hahaha!!! Uh...No!
Thankfully, he is NOT a Saint, and after THREE HOURS was NOT able to tell me the problem and NOT give me a temporary fix.
And I am so NOT embarrassed over my Tears, Snot, Gasps, and Hiccups. I was telling my FFBH and he did NOT laugh and say, "I wish I was there to give you a hug!" NOT nice, huh? Yeah, I did NOT think so too!
So...how was your week? what did you NOT do?
Oh, P.S. I did NOT do my online quiz AND homework in my underwear last night, which I realize is NOT TMI, but is still NOT like totally cool!!! tee hee!
