The worst day ever at my day-job

An HP ethernet switch with cables arranged messily going in to it. All the lights on the switch are currently lit, even those with no cables.
Some of the cabling was not even this neat.

In order to fully get the switch clear of the rack and the other cables, I needed to tilt it. And that’s when about 8 ounces of water poured out. So now, I was standing at the top of the rack with all our most precious network equipment, with my sleeve barely holding the water that I don’t want to hit any of the fiddly bits.

Then, the alarm on my wound-vac went off. “Canister full. Replace immediately.”

Some days it do be like that

Some days, be it bodily runoff, internet packets, rainwater, or milk…nothing flows the way it’s supposed to.
