People I am glad I don't work with

From MSNBC's article about yesterday's Blackberry outage. I'm removing the jackass who said its name and company so as not to publicize them.

"I'm mad — it's enough already," said a frustrated [name redacted], who said he gets 1,000 e-mails a day as director of field marketing for [company name redacted]. and can't afford the downtime.

[Name redacted], who worked most of Monday on a laptop while traveling, plans to ask his company to buy him a backup smart phone from a rival like Palm Inc., which makes the Treo, in case BlackBerry service goes on the fritz again.

"I don't know what happened, I don't care what happened. They need to save their excuses for someone who cares," [he] said.

Oooooh, pardon me, your majesty: Do you want your new Treo in hot pink or purple, you fancy man you?

What a total prima dona. I hope for his sake that this wee girl sells a lot of business, because if he worked for me I'd have a mind to fire his ass for being a jerk in the press and bringing bad publicity down on my company.

The service was down for three hours. It shouldn't happen, it's inconvenient, but give me a break. Take a deep breath, pop into a Starbucks, turn on your laptop and check your email while sucking down a venti white hot chocolate, you stupid drama queen!
