As I looked out the window into the Spring morning sun light, all I could do was hope that the call I was on would be over soon. It was around 10:00 am on a beautiful morning and I was on another conference call to put out a fire. As I watched the children play a little while on the call I started wondering just what I was doing. This was not the first call on the weekend and I knew as an Incident Manager "as ITIL would coldly label me", it would not be the last. Then my daughter came as asked me to go outside and blow a dandelion with her, and I knew I could not, and I said what any father in my position would, "In a little bit, when I'm off the phone". She smiled and went away, while I stayed and worked in what would become an all day affair of calls and problems that was "just part of the job".
However, I cant but help to laugh a little though when I see the see the quote that connect snow to kindness! Yes it is very very true that kindness can and always will cover all thing and make them better, however, my humor comes from the fact that these snow storms do not always bring out the best in u, but can bring out the worst instead!
