OK, so we’ve got this commercial client who expects us to work over Xmas so we are working over Xmas. This is just taken for granted, no discussion, nothing.
It’s a really good job that I didn’t go to visit my family in another city like I was supposed to because my client is having a load of work stuff delivered to my home address tomorrow. On Xmas eve. Without asking me. I just received a surprise email about it this afternoon from the warehouse that is doing the delivery. Because obviously I couldn’t possibly have any plans or any reason to be doing anything on 24th December apart from wait in my house for couriers with business packages.
Good thing I didn’t go to family Xmas, isn’t it. That would have been a right old mess. Crucial business packages being delivered to an address where I’m 120 miles away.
So that was Day 3 of the so-called Xmas holidays.
