This is new to me, being on-call for work, and not particularly welcome. Monday night (Tuesday morning) I received a phone call at 2:30am which led to my being awake until 4:00am. ARGH!!! Try to go to sleep after that, knowing that you have to get up in 2 hours.
Last night, I had to call an important client at 12:20am to make sure the issues they were experiencing that had been resolved earlier in the day - had not reoccurred. Can you imagine the feeling of wanting to sleep so badly - and talking to really chipper people on the phone who were the reason you weren't in bed? Heh.
Afterwards I had to notify 2 different people that the client was still good and after that came the documentation. My head hit the pillow at about 1:00 am.
Can you say - I think I'm too old for this crap?!
Please pray for the person who wakes me up tonight.
