The Mayan Calendar predicts the end of Service Desk calls

12/19/2012 by: The SunView Team

That's right, on December 21, 2012, (12/21/12) the world will come to an end according to the Mayan Calendar. The good news is, so will the seemingly endless calls to the Service Desk asking for password resets and email box storage limit increases.

Of course, the planned summer vacation in the Bahamas for 2013 is pretty much cancelled as well, but what can you do?

If on the off-chance the Earth, as we know it, is still around next week, you might consider implementation of an ITIL-based ITSM solution. Check out the free offer below.

I read with interest the blog post 12/21/12: Definitely Not the End of the World by Erik Klemetti. He doesn't seem convinced that the world will end and gives absolute proof that the entire doomsday scenario is a just rumor. He discounts the following:

  • There is no evidence that there is a going to be a large-scale planetary alignment that will cause massive geological events like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
  • There is no evidence that the rogue planet Nibiru exists or is coming to a planetary orbit near you.
  • He totally discounts the feature film 2012 as an unbelievable Hollywood movie; and that is what I was basing my January 2013 mortgage payment on. Darn.
  • Total rejection of the magnetic field flip theory. The good news is that you won't have to turn your fridge over to get your magnets to stick.
  • He doesn't believe that a fleet of spaceships are coming to destroy the earth, either. Didn't he read The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy? We all know that the Vogons are coming to destroy the Earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

I personally find it more fulfilling to believe that the Mayan's created their infamous calendar just for you, the Service Desk employees. That way, we can all believe that the Service Desk calls will magically disappear on 12/21/12. Well, if tomorrow never comes, it has been very nice blogging for you. Or as the character from the movie The Titanic, Wallace Hartley, the violinist on deck said, "Gentlemen. It has been a privilege playing with you tonight."
