This is the last you will hear from me on this topic, I promise. I don't want to run you guys off by bitching about work too much.
I was told today that there will be no disciplinary action for my co-worker who did not answer his phone while he was on-call. Apparently it would have been ok if he had returned the call the next morning after our UPS unit melted down overnight. This is good news for me, because my job just got a whole lot less stressful. We are the only network administrators the I know of that can "not get" an emergency call in the middle of the night, and it be ok. So there it is, if I choose to take another call like the one I took over the weekend, it will be on me. Who's the fool now 'eh.
I'll be back to my old self tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
