Late I know (story of my life!
) but I ended up being a dedicated employee for Halloween. I planned on getting out around 4:30-5:00 so I could come home, get dinner and then get ready for the kiddies to come and get candy!
Plus my niece was coming over to show us her Indian Princess costume. She's such a little cutie!
Instead...I ended up staying at work until almost 7:30...we had been having problems with a server for almost a week and the vendor engineers had been working on this problem since Monday, with no success. I finally had them give me access to the box and started working on it around 3:00. I ended up finding the problem and by the time I got it fixed and tested to make sure things were working that we had been having trouble with, it was almost 7:00!!!
We have to send status emails to our project manager every day before we leave so by the time I got that done and got out of there it was nearly 7:30. I was so upset that I missed the kiddies...but this problem had been lurking for so long I just HAD to finish the work once I found the problem.
Good thing about all of it is that my boss was SO happy that I fixed a problem that the vendors of the product couldn't even fix that she gave me Friday afternoon off. With pay!
I did manage to make it home in time to see Rachel (my niece) in her costume and get a few pics of her (I'll be posting them on my website soon) so it wasn't a total loss. Plus a 1/2 day off on a Friday. Hmm...maybe I should pretend to be a dedicated employee more often! LOL!! :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
