Blithering Blathering

Tweedledee has returned, and he’s already yammering. He started talking to himself (in his normal, full-volume way) within minutes of when I sat down at my desk this morning. And now the month-long, 90 decibel monologue about his trip has begun.

I got so much done last week, when it was quiet enough to hear myself think — and I felt so smart, checking off all of those issues. Fixed, fixed, fixed. But now we’re back to normal.

*whine*

    Ever consider slipping some fart powder into his coffee? he’ll be quiet.

    Alternately, and lkess intrusively, see if your new overlords will spring for a Lencore system. Hard to beat, I’ll tell you. One of our suppliers has one which dampens talking of the audience in a 350 seat auditorium, and it works almost flawlessly.

    Or perhaps just a pair of noise-cancelling headphones…

    It’s not that simple, unfortunately. He’ll come over and ask a legitimate question, and then linger for fifteen minutes trying to rope me into a conversation when I’m obviously trying to get work done.

    He’s not the one who drives me insane, anyway. Tweedledum gave me a program change to test today, that didn’t work, as usual. And instead of fixing the program, he’s spent the last half hour screaming into the phone about not wanting someone’s input on his freaking songs.

    He had a program fix last week, where he was supposed to disallow a specific change, and give an error. And he gave it to me to test with only the error message. The disallowed change was still completed, just fine. And the test script didn’t even include a step to check if the change was made.

    He explains not putting in drop-down select boxes on screen fields by saying that it wasn’t in the spec. Aaaaaarrghhhh!

    I swear, it’s like working with a trained monkey. Well, a semi-trained monkey.
