Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday

I was probably thirteen years old when I finally learned there was a ‘dne’ in Wednesday. I always thought it was ‘Wensday’ and I was so stubborn, I refused to acknowledge anyone telling me that I was wrong.

Long story short, it’s Wednesday. Wednesday is off to a greeeeeeeat start.

My company’s network is down. I’ve got nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. I’m frustrated that I can’t work at the moment. On the other hand, I’m grateful that I’m not a programmer, or IT right now. Because we’re a tech company, if our network is down, none of the customers have access to our products. Their phones are probably ringing like crazy. Me… I just get to sit here and patiently wait. I guess their are worse things in life than laying on the couch, devouring sugar and waiting for the network to reconnect on a Wednesday morning.

  1. yikes! My brother is one of those IT guys you’re talking about and he was facing a weird crisis moment a few days ago… I know because he got called to work (he’d been WFH) in the middle of lunch and my mom threw a fit (cause she likes the family to eat together) and he came back some time in the middle of the night and slept through the day after.
    Quite a spectacle in the house.

    Wednesday is super fun actually… I remember my school days when I’d be counting for the weekend and that means it’s just two days more! (not that it matters anymore now)

    1. Your brother must be a very patient soul. IT guys/gals always get beat up on when something goes wrong.

      And you’re right about Wednesday being equidistant from the weekend. Almost there, now!

    1. Back in ancient times?
      Actually, internet was just really becoming a ‘thing’ when I was in Elementary. I remember we had our first computer class in grade five and that seemed so weird to me at the time. Now my nieces and nephews are 2 and 3 and 4 and they can use technology better than I can! What a world we’ve gotten to.

      1. I think children of the future will be born “wired” to the internet which will eventually develop into a true connective single mind – which we all can tap into now but it just takes meditation and hard work. There’s a book there…

  2. Well, I feel better that I wasn’t the only one that believe Wednesday was spelt that way! Even now I have to think about it because I spelt it wrong for so long. Thanks for making me feel less like a weirdo…LOL
    My husband doesn’t get it!

  3. Isn’t the English language fascinating? “Wednesday” is a crazy one; it also blew my mind that it was spelled the way it was when I was younger! Hope you get over the mid-week hump at work!

  4. It just occurred to me – that since we pushed all of the services we are dependent on into the cloud, we are a lot safer than we once were – when we ran servers in the offices. Now the office is completely gone it’s probably even better – because the staff are distributed as well. Of course if Office365 goes down, we’re dead in the water 🙂

  5. I love this admission! I too had my own language and pronunciations for certain words that I was very stubborn about correcting! Long story short, I have suffered a hearing loss and only hear certain tones. Even today I have trouble with some people. Working at the drive thru for Starbucks was a real challenge wearing that headset😜
    In the meantime, sit back and relax my friend! Sounds nice😎

  6. I’m one of those I.T. ‘guys’ that used to get into long calls and/or work nonstop for ‘the fix’. Just enjoy the break 😉 I remember some clients/customers before would have that look in their face as if to say, ‘don’t fix it right away’ lol

    1. I thought about it. But, my boss kept phoning me and I definitely had to answer. I don’t think he’d have been too impressed if I didn’t. I’d be like ‘Sorry! Time of crisis, I decided it best if I just remove myself from the situation and go back to bed.’

      1. It’s 5am and I haven’t gone to bed yet. This has been my sleep schedule all week…. I need to join video game anonymous if one exists. Cannot stop playing Animal Crossing it’s bad man. Ever since I’ve unlocked the terraforming tool I was like whoa, there’s options now! Things haven’t been the same since.
