My life: A Day In A System Support Specialists’ Shoes

It has been a couple of weeks since I last update this blog. My day job is slowly sucking the soul out of my life with the new client and system. Most of the times I will end my days with blinking-red-light level of exhaustion. Luckily I manage to stay awake on the wheel. On a daily basis, I will spend at least 2 – 3 hours on the road and when on the road I do a lot of thinking and monologueing. What about you?

Recently, I was blogwalking while trying to ease the headache when I stumble across this 1 blog called martinvalasek.com. The inspiration from 1 of the post just made my day.

Now, lets walkthrough how my daily day job normally starts and ends.

When I go to work every Monday

When I start distributing the task list and everybody went…

When I checked the system and simulate the issue for the first time

When I try a solution without reading the test cases

When I propose the solution to the client

When the client calls in again and saying that we can just ignore the issue and that it wasn’t really important

code-06

When I solved the issue on the phone with the client without even looking at the screen

When I did a pretty good job for the day and the client is happy

When the boss came to check on my work progress

And asked “How’s everything so far? Good?”

Well, by the end of the day after doing the same thing over and over again with some additions of new issues and some improbable new requests, I still manage to finish my shift and barely alive going back home.

There you go folks. That’s basically how my daily day job life feels like. I really hope that there will be some incentives for us some time soon though. The workload nowadays are like 300% increase from last year. I need more times off and the office needs more FUN!.

Cheers~

  1. It was really cool how you incorporated these moving images into your post. I must say, though, that when I saw the first image, I thought that it was a still image. Then the head popped out and I jumped. It’s a very good way to draw attention from your readers, so well-done on that one!
