I'm finally back in Sydney after a whole month being away on holidays !!
Really not sure if that is something to celebrate.
It's my 1st week back at work and I feel like I've just gone and dug my own grave. I have so much work to get through, it just isn't funny. You would imagine that things that were looked after by me would be taken on by someone else in the team while I was away. After all, I was on annual leave for a whole month. But, no. They decided that everything could wait until I got back. Even when one of the SPs on the SAN failed (1 week ago), they decided that it could wait as well. There is a failover, but what happened if that failed as well ?! I think I would just refuse to come back to work if the whole thing failed.
Damn me, if I ever contemplate taking a whole month of annual leave again.
I think the next time I want time off, I would rather quit my job (get my leave paid out in cash) and find another one when I get back from my holidays.
