So whats the big deal here? If you change the password etc then the problem is solved right? Ohhh thats right you're talking about people not READING the damn manual telling them what they need to do!

Well tell you what, tough. You didn't read, you didn't listen, then pay the consequences. It TELLS you that you need to change the password etc and what you should do. If you choose not to do it, then face the consequences.

See a Red Light means stop, if you choose not to obey that and get in an accident and get hurt, well sorry but you pay the consequences of your actions.

I hate being so negative sometimes but damn, there comes a time when even the Big red letters not the widespread panic across the news won't help.

Yes, I agree, the companies should make these things where you have to create a new password and username etc, but there's only so much they can do. B/c we all know that most people would leave the password field blank. I know this all to well as the CEO of my company has a blank password on his personal email addy.

Bored so here goes!

I've been contemplating using this journal just to rant from time to time. But never bothered with it. Today I guess I'm really bored here at work and decided to give it a whirl.

Lemme just say never under-estimate the ability to walk! Last Friday while working, all of a sudden I got a lot of pain in my right ankle. When I say pain, I don't mean a little hurt where you can probably yell and it will go away. I mean pain where it's hard to respond to people and their questions.

Drove myself home, yeah I know stupid right? Got home in more pain. Called my mom to come take me to the ER b/c I didn't want to call an ambulance in. Turns out I had gotten arthritis due to exhaustion. Most likely from my workout and probably doesn't help that I work in a basement where it's normally 60F.

I was on crutches this past weekend and I had an ankle brace on. I took it off today, but I'm not sure if I should have. We'll see how it goes the rest of the day. Hopefully nothing will happen.
