Currently giving thanks there's nobody here to kill.

Currently, I am dealing with an emergency. It's an emergency that's been dealt with before, and an emergency that is only an emergency because the office is closed today.

It's an emergency that the person who is requesting the data has made as difficult as possible to respond to properly- but he's completely unapologetic about having set things up such that the response he wants simply cannot happen. This 'emergency' has cost me spending any time with my friends this Thanksgiving, and is currently costing me any enjoyment of the day off I have today.

So yeah. I'm thankful that there's nobody in arm's reach.

EDIT to add:
not only is this a lovely moment of Dante-from-Clerks saying 'I'm not even supposed to be here today!', but--
I CANNOT EVEN FILL THE FUCKING REQUEST.
