Oh Vaal, Where Art Thou? (where I’ve been)

I’m sure you’ve all been wondering what the hell is going on with updates to the site this month.


Short story: I’ve been recovering from a nasty flu without really any opportunity to recover at all with my job.


Long story: I work for one of the dumbest companies on Earth. So basically, my schedule got changed so I no longer have two days in a row off. If you’ve ever worked this schedule, you know that it lets you get nothing done and you have no time to relax.

The reason for this was told to us as that our call volume was going to dip in the next few weeks after the change. This despite the volume being way up because… reasons. I signed an NDA, so I can’t tell.

Anyway, they then immediately gave us a WHOLE MONTH of an extra hour of overtime because call volume was so high. Yes.

So the day this started, I got the flu. I only took one day off and suffered the rest of the week with only one day of rest. I’m still not feeling good, plus I just don’t have time off to rest and sleep and think.

That ends next week at least, so expect things to get back to normal.

  1. I haven’t experienced that schedule but I’ve had my share of dumb bosses, including one who’d read somewhere that it wasn’t possible for fatigue to last past a night’s sleep. My condolences.

  2. Is it more of the same Vaal, or has something else happened?

  3. Hope u get well soon, don’t give up!
