I work with a product every day that people loathe, hate and despise.
I’m not talking about just disliking it, people spit at it. They tell me that they want it to die and never come back.
I have been working closely with this product for nearly 10 years.
It is Lotus Notes.
Ouch..I can hear people getting ready to send me their horse heads and yelling, “THAT FUCKING STUPID PROGRAM”
It gets so bad that sometimes even the people I work with that are supposed to be on our side and supporting the products we work will go to any length to try and get rid of Lotus Notes in favour of some stupid M$crosoft product that doesn’t do half of what Notes can do and will have just as many problems.
I have been fighting these people every day because I believe in the product that I work with.
Not that it’s been easy smooth sailing over these 10 years. There have been days where I’ve wanted to put a fist through my screen or do this…
But one day….one day I will change what I am doing…and do something I love.
Something that I want to wake up in the morning and do.
