Deprivation

I have been in a rotten mood over the past week at work. I don't know what it is, I deal with 'silly' people almost every day but lately it's been getting to me. I don't usually allow myself to get riled up over things but I have dealt with a couple of very frustrating users that I support. People have been calling in with some of the stupidest questions, things that would only make sense if they were blind or deaf. The thing is it's probably always been like this but whether it is sleep deprivation or God knows what, I've become a lot less patient when it comes to dealing with these people.

It also doesn't help that we are closing in on another release in 2 weeks and I have a sh*tload of documentation that needs to be updated, and during this time where I have all this work, these morons call me up.

You all know that I've had problems sleeping past 6:30. Over the past 3-4 days, I have been regularly waking up at 5:30. It drives me nuts and every time I wake up and see the clock I curse at myself.

[Brian wakes up, abruptly like an alarm has gone off in his head.]
[Brian rolls over, looks at his clock.]
Brian: "5:30? FIVE THIRTY?! What the HELL!!"
[Goes back to sleep.]
[Tick, tock, tick, tock..]
[Time passes. Very little, as it turns out.]
[Brian wakes up, checks his clock.]
Brian: "HOLY CRAP.. 5:37? SEVEN MINUTES HAVE PASSED?? NOOOOOO.."

It's even worse when you consider I slept at 1:30am..

It feels kind of like ... I'm in school again.

Edit: Woke up at 4:30am on Thursday.

Edit: Woke up at 4:21am on Friday.
