A new rule that states that IT staff can’t have time off in October seems to have created a bigger problem… everyone has taken this week off.
Today I was called away for something critical… updating a web page. This thing isn’t remotely my job and having the permission to be able to do it was just a technicality. However all 3 web editors spanning two separate Humanities departments were all on holiday.
So I, not even having the software to do the job, had to go to a different building to sit in someone else’s seat to do half an hour of work that I shouldn’t have done. This is on a day that I went to the Humanities campus early because I had far more work than time in the day to do.
At least everyone seems happy to see me back, even if I don’t know what I’m doing once I am back.
