Lets call the whole thing off

So the conversation with Ruth goes something like this

“you do realize one thing about this new job and Microsoft outlook don’t you?”

look of extreme horror, as the realization dawns, that our installation of Microsoft office is tied to the university’s academic licenses.

“Oh, Kevin, call them back, and take it all back!”

Ruth lives by outlook, so it’s no surprise she’s a bit upset. Still I have been tasked with finding a suitable replacement. We’ve ruled out actually buying Microsoft office, it’s far to expensive (we could just wave goodbye to any pay increase), replacing word and the like should be easy enough. It’s just outlook and it’s calendar

Still Ruth pushed me to go for the job, so she can’t really blame me.
