here we go again

The drive into work was…interesting. A good way *NOT* to start your day is :
– Realize you need to stop for gas
– overshoot the pump by about a foot so you have to back the car up
– forget the parking break so the car rolls forward
– repeat backing the car up

Yeah, I must have looked like a flaming MORON at the gas station this morning.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    my personal policy is to disregard errors that occur before 10am. i’m sure there are others out there who think the same.
