Memories from Apogee/3D Realms #3
Not sure how this one will work out. As I said in part 1, most good, some bad. So this one I have to change names and jobs because I don't want anyone that is still working somewhere thinking that I did this to them. Etc Etc.

There has been an ongoing Bryanisiam up here that I started YEARS ago. I LOVE to stick my foot in my mouth.

Back in tech support days. We loved to play jokes on people. And the the one that I loved was to stick Beastly porn on your start up, Shut down, and Desk top. You left work with your desktop on... I was going to mess with it. One night Dave left at 6 while I was on the phone with Debbie. (Yes I remember her name cause sometimes we had customers that called alot) So we got off at 6 and I was there till 6 45. Helping Debbie through a level in Wolf. The fun part about this was by now I had memorized every level from every game that we supported.

So as I was talking to her I was attacking Daves Machine. Had it all messed up. I was so looking forward to the next morning. And this is all while I am telling Debbie to turn right go to the nazi sign turn left. (I was and am a REALLY good Tech)

So I leave at 6:45 and shut down mine and Daves machine. Waiting and looking forward to the next day.

I get there the next day, and he is there looking lost. I thought it had to do with me. But what happened was his system was missing and he did not know what to do. Or where to look for it.

Me being me looked at him and looked at Dennis.. "Dude you are Screwed the only time they do that is when they are about to fire you" Now I have to note. They had never done anything like that before so I was really joking.

Turns out. Yea. He did something bad, and was shitcanned.

2 days later I had to talk to George about my "inappropriate" behavior on his machine that they needed to look at... Although about 1/2 way through the I expect better from you speech he told me it was funny. (This being one of the first times I was called into his office that stopped there) Sad part is they had to leave it alone and leave the porn on the machine...

Next one. Dave worked in upper management. I was really not sure what he did. But he did stuff. Worked there for a while and was over me. One day Dennis and I were joking around with him telling him that no one knew what his Job really was, and I am sure he will be fired..

Next day I get called into Steve's office (all the Tech's) telling us that he was let go. Dennis looked at me and said "Thats 2 you need to stop that shit. And you BETTER not do it to me!"

Fade to Black and zoom in on 2 weeks ago. Dave and Joe were carpooling home talking. Something is up at work and it is scareing Dave. Dave said to Joe "I think this is really bad and we are going to loose our jobs." Joe looked at him and Laughed. "Bull Shit. This is just one of those things that they are working on that no one can know."

Dave was still worried and asked where Joe would work. Joe said some things, and Dave was like "I have NO freaking idea what I would do"

Oh .. Wait .. That last Dave. Was not Dave. It was Bryan. Yep I got my self layed off because I said a curse that I had already been told not to say. DENNIS WHY DID YOU NOT SAY IT STRONGER!

HAHA mothers day..

Called my mom got a lecture on what I need to be doing. But my sister is taking her out. Oh and she read on the internet that 3DR does not have enough money for my Severance. I should walk now. And she has a friend in a freecreditreportnow.com that I need to talk to about a job..... Yea..

Made Breakfast in Bed for my GF and let her son take the credit. Cause I am cool that way. He handed it to her and then ran down to play "The Bigs" (xbox)

My daughters mom picked her up at 3, and now we are both (GF and I) watching what is on our tivo..

But she agrees that I have worked there 15 years and taken a total of 3 weeks vacation. I am going to take at least a week off. Even though we can make it for at most 3 months. And that is pushing it.

This reminds me of Keith Schuler's curse where he would ask "So what does soandso do around here?" and it would end up in them being fired for not really doing much around there.

Yes.. But my job was well strange.. In my mind I am a linux SysAdmin. I know more about linux than windows. I am an office manger. and I am Tech. My Resume is all screwed up atm. and Steve and I (Probally Brian as well) are going to go over it.

heh. Course it is in OOo so I have to save it to something else so they can read it.

The Coke story isn't that long, it'd be over in about two lines.

Bryan, I'm sure I can't convince you, but you shouldn't carry this around. None of the things you mentioned are your fault. It might have been if Dave #1 had been fired for the porn, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Exactly. It's like your mother saying, "I have a bad feeling my son's been in a wreck" every time you were a little late. When it didn't happen, she forgot about it. But, if there was one time when you really were in a wreck, she'd say, "See, I knew it!"

Actually if a book is written, about all those Apogee/3D Realms memories, I'd buy it without thinking. This series and the funny stories Joe added in the Legacy Interviews are very nice. Every one have its own stories from work, school, etc. and this are nice stories from you guys and keep me thinking 3D Realms and all this closure thing as a Graduation day that aftermath everyone have its own path and are likely to see each other not so often now. It's a very sad thing indeed, but reading all this stories keep me happy.
