Just my luck

April 26, 2008 § 9 Comments

It happened like any other incident in my life. It happened on an afternoon. Came back from lunch, only to find that I had been locked out of my office. Somebody had shut the door, when all instructions on not to shut the door had been blasted into everybody’s ears hundreds of times. But somebody had to do it. Now what is the problem with that, you ask? Locked out of office, na. Just tell the admins to get the keys and let you in. Not quite. Here at Microsoft, the security team takes care of such things. Which means that they have to be contacted. No, not by me, but by the admins. Which means I have to contact the admins, right? No, wrong again. The admins have to be contacted by my onsite manager. So, I have to contact my onsite manager. Then the admin contacts the other manager(who has to send a mail, saying its alright to let me back in), and in doing so, immortalises my name in the hall of people shut out of their office, which is a pretty small hall, I am told. And once they all approve, I am told to wait. So I wait. For 3 hours. After which a security dude comes and lets me in, after assuring himself that I am Me. A little later I tell him not to upgrade to Vista, when he asks me if he should.
