My Apologies

March 20th, 2017 by G.

Odin hired a new secretary.  She exceeded expectations in ever particular–except she returned Microsoft Word to its presets.  All of Odin’s carefully built up hotkeys for runes and such were lost.  He had a word with her, and then began restoring his Office suite.  But she did it again!

Although Odin’s first thoughts were wrathful, he reflected that in all other respects, she really was an excellent secretary.  So he asked the Norns to destine her each day not to mess with his customization of Microsoft Word.  The Norns obliged, and all went along swimmingly.

Until one fatal day one of the Norns was sick, and the destiny was not wrought.  What did the secretary do?  Yep.  Norn the less, she presetted.

Burn in hell.

Arrgghh. But why is she able to re-set your Word? Aren’t the settings saved at each workstation?

Jesus saves.

Be sure to tell Odin to keep his eye on it.

For those out of the media loop, Google Autocomplete informs me that “nonetheless she persisted” is apparently a “meme” these days and is available on T-shirts. (I should have been able to figure it out without Google’s help, but I couldn’t for the life of me think of any probable words that sounded like “presetted.”)
