The Blame Game

I had a server fail this weekend...which isn't real news because hardware fails. Cars die, blenders burn up and computers lose their cotton-picking minds. The part that is a shock is that I opened a ticket a month ago to have this computer looked at because I knew it was going Tango Uniform on me. Naturally when this said machine breaks I am the first that they come down on but now that everyone is actually at work because it is a Monday in starts the blame game. I love this game and already know the outcome...the person with the lowest title is to blame. In this case it is me although they are having a difficult time pinning it on me since I followed the process, but rest assured my title won't save my butt against high-ups and this will go down as an epic fail. Oh yeah and the backups that run every night...well they haven't been running but no one let me know but apparently I should have guessed. Again Crystal comes up with a failure. Now I know why some of my fellow comrades have given up the IT blame game and taken on other fields. If this reaches the levels that it might I am hoping the circus is hiring. :-)
