Weird Stupid Hard Scary for today

Weird, Stupid, Hard & Scary For Today. Feel free to add your own.

Weird: Out of all the IT professionals in my office that could have updated the webserver operating systems, they chose me, the technical writer who hasn't wrote code since 20 lines of code on a TRS-80 in high school. And it didn't run.

Stupid: I don't know what a BAD_POOL_HEADER error is, and I don't care. But the webservers have them, and because of this, I feel stupid.

Hard: I'm a certified project manager and have a B.A. and M.A. in writing and the propeller heads are complaining that they have to write manuals and take project management classes while I'm loading operating systems in the server room.

Scary: When people complain to me about breaking the webservers I'm going to unload on them with all the professional standup comedian anti-heckler verbal destruction at my command. I will reminisce on this destruction with a curious mixture of regret and satisfaction.

Feel free to add your own Weird, Stupid, Hard & Scary.
