My day today:

Yes, I can google that for you
No, I don’t have authority to do that
Yes, I knoooooow
No, I don’t know where we keep that
Argh! Government websites!
Oh poop, I forgot to call my client to say I wasn’t coming in.

Can you give our office a call right way!. The positions are in Chelsea, Dexter, Saline, Ann Arbor, Milan, and Dundee. Do you have any friends also looking?

Huh. I got an email from UM saying that "Your U-M affiliation has changed, and this affects the U-M computing services
