An interview with the IT dude:

June 23, 2008 at 4:30 pm 18 comments

So, at my new company (which is HUGE by the way) I walk in on my first day on the job to find out that;

a) I get to enjoy my very own office! It is sensational when it comes to views of–
· men – I overlook the the workshop three stories below me, where the guys often work topless. Yes, I’m being serious. Yes, they are mostly all sexy.

· the ocean – I get to see a lot of boats, you know what I’m sayin’?

· the city – well, okay, from my corner I only really catch a glimpse of smog every now & again. But still, at least I can see the smog!

b) Our IT manager walks right up to me and says ‘ohmygod – you are totally SheBee! I read your blog like every day!’ I had to stop short of him asking for my autograph, it was weird. Although, this is so intensely awesome, because now I can reap the following benefits:

· The ability to not feel guilty to upload my posts or comment on my own site, since he is a reader, he expects a post daily, right? (I’m still working on him allowing me access to blogger comments – Hi, RK, any luck with it? Will make you coffee forever and ever amen?)

· Whenever I break the internet, he is but a ‘holla’ away. This has yet to happen though. Kudos to me!

· If I feel like dodging phone calls, he sweetly allows me to hide under his desk and read Man-a-zines.

And so, to introduce this lovely new character to you readers, I did a SheBee-style 20Q on him J you’re welcome.

RK, beloved IT guru, what has been your high light of this month so far?

You are so leading up to an answer about you, I bet. I’m not biting. But I will say, that amongst other things, meeting you unexpectedly was pretty kiff, hey.

Well come on, its not every day you get to meet your favourite Blogger in person!

You are only my local favourite, SheBee. You know how I love [stupid bloggers name removed for selfish reasons] and her [stupid reference removed for public decency reasons]. But yes, you are a fantastic bonus to our company team, you fit in very well & we’re glad to have you. Welcome to the mad house!

Jeez, I feel like I’ve just been re employed, thanks! Come now, this isn’t a political interview –enough about you, lets talk about me!

Oh my word… where do I start? [hehe okay, I totally inserted that myself. He actually said ‘Do I have to do this stupid thing? I’m just a lurker, you know…’]
Alright, I suppose you are kind of pretty and stuff when you remember to brush the sleep out your eyes. Plus, your leopard shoes are somewhat sexy. Also, your boo-

Okay, jeez, enough about physical appearance damnit! I feel like a piece of chicken!

Lol! Um, seriously – I used to think you exaggerated a lot about how clumsy you are. I’ve now seen that Bridget Jones has nothing on you. Do your readers know that you locked yourself out of the office on Friday in the rain? Have you told them how you took a running leap and almost fell down two flights of stairs?

Well, now they do – am I going to have to put you on a leash, RK? Alright, cure the mystery for me. What do IT geeks really do in a company? I mean, there’s only so many complaints you can attend to in a day…

Well, I take care of the things you wouldn’t think of. Essentially I am there to ensure back ups are done, virus scans are running properly, making sure the (Ethernet / intranet) is working properly. Also, I’m there to google porn a lot and play games online, but don’t tell anyone that.

You know, that all sounds very nerdy, but to be honest – you don’t fit the profile of a geek. You don’t wear glasses, I don’t think you have acne on your back, you wear diesel jeans and you drive a sexy car. How’d that happen?

I do wear contacts, though. I go to gym a lot so that I can fill out these diesel jeans, and I just got lucky with the car J Is this you hitting on me, SheBee? You know I have a girlfriend, right? It’s okay though – she won’t mind sharing. Can I give you my number now?

Oh bugger off. You wish man, I was just merely pointing out that you weren’t totally disgusting to look at. Men! Alright, you’ve wasted my time long enough and I now have a call waiting, so. Go make me tea, please?


**puts down phone**

[Bastard. He’s completely colonized the ‘okthxbi’ from me!]

Yay! I’m so happy in my new position. Its hardly been a month and I feel so at home. I was welcomed with a bunch of flowers and hot chocolate the other day, and this morning I was sent anonymous lunch. The guys are hysterical and the women too busy to bitch. Its fab, dahling, fab.

PS:  Telkom adsl lines over the entire area of Durban have been stolen, or broken, or stolen or something.  Apparently it will take up to three working days to fix.  Joy oh joy.

  • 5. charmskool  |  June 24, 2008 at 8:02 am

    Aww bare-chested men in a workshop! I am so very much in the kind of profession where if the dudes took off their shirts you’d beg them to put them back on. Although…our IT guy is quite cute but his girlfriend works here and guards him like a little Jack Russel.

  • 6. icepickyo  |  June 24, 2008 at 8:09 am

    haha hilarious.

  • 7. shebee  |  June 24, 2008 at 8:16 am

    Charm – hehehe poor, poor you. Come to Durban and take one or two of mine, I believe they breed well.

    IcePick – hi! Thanks for commenting, finally 🙂

  • 8. icepickyo  |  June 24, 2008 at 9:08 am

    Busy going through all your old posts. Days work will have to wait!

  • 9. shebee  |  June 24, 2008 at 9:19 am

    Lurkers are always welcomed to come out of the closet.

    Also, I saw your IP address about the place …

    Good luck with going through the archives, it goes back to almost two years ago.

  • 10. icepickyo  |  June 24, 2008 at 9:32 am

    ip address is campus ip. So I could be one of 20 000 peeps 🙂

  • 11. shebee  |  June 24, 2008 at 10:03 am

    IcePick – Spoil sport!

  • 12. leez  |  June 25, 2008 at 7:48 am

    Nice!!! You have a real life fan. And one that knows how to work these computer thingys.

    Sounds like the beginnings of a beautiful relationship…

  • 13. leez  |  June 25, 2008 at 8:02 am

    PS. That other blogger is named after a small green veggie(?) isn’t she?

    And does IT dude blog as well?

    just curious.

  • 14. shebee  |  June 25, 2008 at 8:13 am

    Yes, I do. Someone that doesn’t actually have to like me because of relations. Its all very exciting.

    No, the IT guy doesn’t blog, he’s a coward.

    Which other blogger is named after a veggie Leez?

  • 15. Tamara  |  June 25, 2008 at 10:18 am

    Shebee, you are so funny! I’d also love to know who the vegetable is!

    I don’t understand blog readers that don’t blog. Yes, that’s you, IT guy.

  • 16. shebee  |  June 25, 2008 at 10:30 am

    Tamara, it takes balls to blog. I’ve learnt that. I’ve also learnt that RK the IT dude, doesn’t have any.

  • 17. angel  |  June 26, 2008 at 6:04 am

    simply awesome when one can love one’s job and view deliciousness all day long!
    can i be jealous…?
    okay no fine- now i wanna be recognised too dammit!!!

  • 18. Tamara  |  June 26, 2008 at 10:15 am

    By inference, then, I haz balls. Yay for me. And you. And all the other bitty bloggers. Sorry… English degenerating into LOLspeak.
