Fucking shit fuck! Absolute cunty-chops of a Work phone just went off at 3am because our directory has clearly been leaked.
This cunt right here is on 24/7 fallout so I can nae silence the bastard. It’s going inte do not disturb for the evening now but.
About 6 months to a year ago we started getting nuisance calls on the cunts. On floated numbers that seem geographically close.
Work have done fuck all in this time, because considering changing ours is a pain in the dick, and costs.
But tonight at 3am I got another; call, immediate hang up on redial.
This wee iPhone prick is looking at me like “ho! Got ya ye fucker”... it’s lucky it’s not been punted out the winde where it belongs. Little fucking prick.
If I look like shit tomorrow at the office, if any prick decides to mention I look tired, I’m gonnae tear the ballbags a new hole between their baws and their arse.
It’s now 4am, sorry fe the language, my Glaswegian heritage shines through at this time in the morning.5
I tried to contact a big German company about an API endpoint we might want to build a connection to. The docs are behind a login. I request login info through a form and get a mail that my request will be checked and I'll hear from them in 2-3 days. Because my boss wants this info until Friday, I try to call them.
First try: "we currently have a disruption in our phone central, please try again later"
2nd try: "sure, I'll put you through! *beep beep* - connection broke off
3rd try: "this number is not in use" (I used redial, didn't make a typo)
4th try: same as the 2nd try, again.
German red tape and technology at its finest. Fml.6
I embrace the removal of the audio jack on smartphones, and I like listening to music via my Bluetooth headset.
Yet why, for fuck's sake, is a double tap on the headset's play button mapped to Call Redial?
I have lost count how often I called someone by mistake. How is such on action a meaningful default? What were they thinking, were they thinking at all?
Everytime I turn on the goddamn headset, I take extra care to ensure that I don't doubletap yet it still often happens by mistake.
I rarely call people anyways on my smartphone anyways.17
