I used to like the firefighting part of systems administration.

Critical systems are broken! Break out the terminal servers and laptops! Ride to the rescue! It's glamorous. People need us! Huzzah!

Now I see firefighting for the tedious bullshit that it is. It means that someone, somewhere, has failed to do their job correctly. [1]

To be blunt, someone [2] has fucked up and I can't rest until the situation has been un-fucked.

[1] Guess what I've been doing since long before dawn.
[2] Probably me.
