Yesterday and Today my office has been Coyote.  Starting Monday around noon we got the call that 5 different products were being recalled. This entailed having to figure out where the product had allocated,  which orders had printed, if they had been pulled and packed.. What  various stages the picklist  were in throughout  the warehouse,  even had to pull most of the orders off the fed ex truck.   Then back them out of the clippership,  delete outbound on the defective items,  then have customers service reenter the orders,  after that figure out how many we need transfer them back to raw material.  

Just now at 2:00 I think the problems have been resolved.  OOPS' spoke to soon.  Maria just figured out that the EtQ quarantine does not list all of the lots.  3:10 Baan is having problems with the generate outbound and we can't get any picks to print.    3:30  IT just called and they generated outbound manually.  I just finished routing the picks.  Maria is now back at her desk so I  am thinking things are good.   Damn.  

I want to cruise into the holiday - not go out like this.   My friend Federico is from Italy and sometimes he is unsure how to say certain words in English.  One day while implementing a new computer system -

I asked him, " how it was going? "

He said " its Coyote" 

I  said" what?"  

He asked me how to say it in English. 

"I don't know what your trying to say" I said. 

Frustrated he said its a English word that we use in Italy.  It means its all crazy.  "Coyote" he said again.  I said a "Coyote is like a dog"  He said he knew that.  I am laughing because I don't know what he is trying to say.  Finally together we figure out he's trying to say Chaotic.   He was telling me it was Chaotic. 

Ever since then when it gets crazy I say it's Coyote. 

Oh yeah, sometimes when its coyote I like to say that mercury must be in retrograde.  I don't know what it means but I like how it sounds.

This is good stuff!  I've heard you say Coyote before but I'd forgotten where it came from.  Federico sounds like a super cool guy.  We don't have cool people like Luke and Federico at my job.  Maybe I need to change careers.  Everyone bores me at my office.  They all think they're so smart...... ass kissers.  Ask Federico how to say ass kissers in Italian. I'll use it at work.  ;)
