In yesterday’s post, I had mentioned that I was paged out of bed at around 03:30 AM because of an operational issue. And for the rest of the day, my mind was fried and I practically looked like a zombie the rest of the day, my word constantly slurred. On top of all that, a different issue cropped up in the evening, the event lasting several hours and robbing me from having dinner with my family. Ugh.
Silver lining: my colleague Paul, a god damn saint, overrode the night time shift and he took my on call over night, allowing me to get some much needed rest. The next morning, I sent an e-mail over to my manager, praising Paul and making sure that his good deed(s) does not go unnoticed.
