Yes folks its THURSDAY and we all know what that means for MOST of us. Actually one of the better places in retrospect that I worked for was a Telecom company in Canada (sadly now a mere shadow of its former glorious self) and the only Nation wide one (contrary to what AGT and Bell etc tried to tell us). Any how I used to get Sunday Monday off and had to work Saturdays which were generally pretty quiet. So I would go in and do what I sort of needed to or wanted to. Of course the odd time the proverbial you-know-what-hit-the-fan and then there was the "pleasure of being PERMANENTLY on call (unless you were on vacation or SICK- of course I can recall getting a phone call when I was sick also- didn't go gee I wonder why LOL). I can remember for years after being laid off (well bumped actually I didn't have a helluva lof of seniority even though I was probably better qualified than most) I would get really stressed (to the point of feeling like I was jumping out of my skin) when the phone rang. Yuck I can still recall THAT feeling (after not working for them since May of 1994) PTSD anyone??
