My attitude defects laid bare

Over a year and a half ago, I had a real issue with that Skype failure?

Do you remember?

Well it seems that this user does. Have a read of their comment posted this evening (on my post: Skype’s IT department must have balls of steel) and revel in my attitude defects as described by the commenter below:

Holy cow. You seem a bit uptight and harsh. Or shall I say, your attitude reflects a slight flaw that enables you to perceive experiences as a mere Human and not a perfect machine – this flaw also prevents you from showing a balanced form of compassion and understanding. Minus the PR bullshit…… what that means is that you have become another tech drone. Always demanding everything run perfect all the time everywhere in every way – or else! Lol. lol. lol. Get used to being frustrated for the rest of your life. Or maybe you could learn to relax for gods sake. Tech drones everywhere I go. : ) Always bitching. Always better than everyone else. I would much rather a company talk real with me. Rather than some PR guy blow smoke up my ass. No matter what is going on.

For the avoidance of doubt: Skype’s response during this time was simply not good enough to warrant being 500 miles in the vicinity of the phrase ‘business critical’.

And we move on.
