    There I was, last nite about 9:30, and my on call work pager goes off. Some big emergency that an in production application is having and the development team needs help.

    Some guy named Stephen King answers the phone, tells me we need to implement an emergency rule for production on Friday the 13th with no testing in a non-production environment and a hurricane is hitting the data center where the rules need to be implemented.

    Anyone wanna take a stab at how my weekend might be?

    Fun? Interesting? If you're on call..a pain in the ass.
    Did I get it right yet?

    Fun? hardly.

    Interesting? certainly, but not necessarily in a good way.

    I'm a salaried employee, no OT for me.

    Maybe I should have added a touch of horror music to the post and then the post might have been funnier.

    I'm salaried too - but based on 80hrs per pay period. I still believe you should be/could be comp'd your excess time. :)
