Hey-la, another one-day weekend come and gone. Gosh, they go by so fast! I wonder why?
I have, finally, scheduled some vacation time for next month. I passed up two already-set vacation weeks earlier this year, since we had huge ongoing projects and the Layoff Fairy was hitting pretty hard. Sure, they'll pull the plug on you as readily when you are there as when you're not, but you've got a better chance to clear out your desk yourself and make sure your ex-peers know about the stuff you have been having to kick once a week to keep running. The loss of institutional knowledge means nothing to thew accountants and executive, but the to techs left behind, a few clues can make a world of difference.
But if there were/are too many of us, why am I working so many weekends?
