Jury Duty

I woke up for work at 5:15 AM today. If you know me, then you know what an amazing feat that is for me. Even on a school night, I'm more likely to go to bed at 5:00 than wake up at 5:00. But, despite the hour, I managed to drag myself out of bed and my Satanic coffee maker decided to cooperate for a change. So I had coffee was waiting for me in my mug rather than on my floor, and I managed to get into the office by 6:00.

I checked out the system, and wouldn't you know it – the same issue we had last weekend was there again. So I kicked off everything manually, and everything seemed to be hunky-dory. I found a small bug, but no biggie... we can address that tomorrow. But today, I have to go to jury duty. Which is why I am in the office at such an ungodly hour. The release on Thursday went so poorly, and the patch on Friday went anything but smoothly, so I decided to play it safe and lose some sleep so that I can make sure the system is running the way it should.

Glad I did. Now to do my civic duty and say proudly: "I'm a consultant, send me home!"

They will pick you because you said that. It will be a civil case. It will drag on for WEEKS!
