So I originally booked the next week off from work. Being a long weekend, I thought I’d just take the rest of the four days off. I haven’t had any time off so far this summer other than other long weekends. I figure this is my last opportunity to take some holiday before the weather turns crappy and work gets busier.
Well, it turns out there was an unfortunate oversight at work which only got discovered about two weeks ago. Who knows how these things happen. All I’ll say publicly is that there’s going to be one hell of a post-mortem when the work is done. Oh wait, we’re supposed to call them “retrospectives” now, since post-mortem is too morbid.
Anyways, someone scheduled a big meeting for Tuesday morning to discuss the situation. That day also happens to be the first day of my “vacation”. Since I’m not going anywhere, I decided to push out my vacation one day. Instead of coming back on the Monday, I’ll come back the day after instead.
I was planning on just sleeping in, playing Xbox 360, eating, seeing movies, and seeing friends anyways, so delaying all that for a day is fine, especially given the serious nature of the meeting. I can tell you if I was going to France or something, I wouldn’t be doing the same thing.
