Currently, I am dealing with an emergency. It's an emergency that's been dealt with before, and an emergency that is only an emergency because the office is closed today.

It's an emergency that the person who is requesting the data has made as difficult as possible to respond to properly- but he's completely unapologetic about having set things up such that the response he wants simply cannot happen. This 'emergency' has cost me spending any time with my friends this Thanksgiving, and is currently costing me any enjoyment of the day off I have today.

So yeah. I'm thankful that there's nobody in arm's reach.

EDIT to add:
not only is this a lovely moment of Dante-from-Clerks saying 'I'm not even supposed to be here today!', but--
I CANNOT EVEN FILL THE FUCKING REQUEST.
  • I hear that. Not that I had a busy social calendar for this weekend but I was looking forward to the me-time. Love work. Just love it.
  • Dude. I so feel your pain. Most of our major systems are down. We can barely do activations.

    And it's Black Friday.
    • Oh shit.

      Yeah, I've just had this pack of fucktards ringing my phone off the hook since about 4 PM yesterday.
      • Oh, it gets better.

        The backup system we use to do manual activations isn't working now. I just did an activation through CARE, and it failed out at the switch. (All transactions get sent to a switch halfway across the state, and usually bounce back w/in a second. Not this one, though. Oh no. Of course not.)

        I will not commit homicide in my store on Black Friday. I will not commit homicide in my store on Black Friday. I will not commit homicide in my store on Black Friday. I will not commit homicide in my store on Black Friday...
  • *scones* Sweetie.
  • oh, no. My huge condolences.
    • One of these- the one I've just finished- I first had contact with 24 hours ago.
      Sheesh.
      • My day's over.

        How's yours going, comrade?
        • finished off about 7 your time.
          • Allow me to offer you a celebratory beverage of your choice. I finished up about an hour after you did.

            We are badasses deserving of tasty beverages.
            • In the immortal words of Dante:
              'I wasn't even supposed to BE HERE today!'

              And it wasn't my task, and it wasn't this and it wasn't that, and pfui. Assholes.
