You paid how many hundred dollars for that office suite? [Feb. 14th, 2003|04:56 pm]

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets without formulas, with all the numbers added up by hand?

Why do I get idiots sending me spreadsheets with multiple numbers per cell, separated by slashes? (with the top column labeled something like (per unit/total))

Why do I get idiots sending me 1 page plain text Word documents attached to plain text emails? Just include the text in the email!

My god, people.

at this one place i worked:

i watched the woman at the desk next to me, for 4 hours, add up a collum of numbers from a spreadsheet by hand on the 10key machine on her desk. she kept loosing track so another lady came over and took a small piece of paper to hold her place on the screen and read the numbers off to the other lady to add them up on the 10key.

as my brain screams; TWO FUCKING MOUSECLICKS WOMAN!
