Pretty much zeroed out in the voice department today. The happy news is that I made it to the drugstore this morning before work so I could refresh the pharmaceuticals that allow me to have at least some function during the day.
Okay, remember a few days ago when I was having problems with the phone? My extension is already assigned to someone else, my phone mail is attached to someone else entirely, and so on?
Well, it gets even better.
Apparently, my actual extension (2020) is the default extension of the operator. So if you call looking for somebody, and they don't have their phone set for voicemail, it gets routed to my phone. When I dial the operator, my phone rings.
Though the potential for tomfoolery exists in such brilliant scope, I have so far resisted.
However, what I have done is set my phone to auto-forward to voicemail. Which goes to the voicemail for David Reed. Apparently David Reed no longer works here, or has moved to another branch of the company, and no longer accesses his voice mail. Thus, anyone who calls and leaves a message will essentially be sucked into the void.
What I really wish I could do is to reroute the call to the operator, thus eternally terminating calls in an endless referral loop. However, since I don't have the password to actually change anything, the voicemail will have to do.
It's not like they're not aware of the problem. It's more that they have ONE guy doing all of the IT and facilities management for the entire building of 120+ people. He just doesn't have time.
I can live without a phone in my cube for a month. Anybody who really needs to reach me can either come find me or call on my cell phone. I'd just think it would be more of a priority for the company to get their phone system working.
