It Could Have Been A Great Day
Hey, who knew you could put italics in your post title? Cool!

This morning had all the makings of a wonderful day. Upon arriving at work we had no power (some fierce electrical storms last night), which meant not only were there no lights, computers, servers, air conditioning, and telephones, but also no toilets as we run on a septic system.

We all sat around the lobby waiting for someone with some authority to tell us to go home, which happened an hour after I had gotten there. We all left with that lighthearted feeling that only an unexpected paid day off can provide--the electric company had said they'd have the power up around 8 p.m.

I got home around 9.30 a.m.

They called us back in at 10.30 a.m.

So here I am. There's no airconditioning upstairs where my office is. There's no voice mail. And none of the engineers came back in.

So, yeah, it could have been a great day. But it wasn't.

    A word of advice - when they send you home, DON'T GO HOME! Go somewhere else to play/relax. See a movie. Then they can't get a hold of you to call you back in!

    I agree with Sally. That's what I used to do.
