It’s Fuck It Friday, bitches!!

And not a moment too soon!

As a result of the app of many broken pieces, I’ve been pulled into more special client troubleshooting than usual, which is fine, but yesterday support was a bit “FFS, status please?” and I let them know we were working on it, and really appreciated any and all patience because “a lot of things are happening all at the same time”* which was the nicest way I could say, “Look, I’m up to my ass in alligators here.”

Our department VP was on the email and he reached out directly to tell me I was doing great and if I needed him to run interference on any of these numerous status requests, he would be happy to do so.

The acknowledgement that this is all A LOT right now and that I am not a complete fuckup in his view was very, very appreciated. As far as VP level types go, he’s definitely one of the better ones that remembers the grind.

I’m also very close to removing Teams from my phone, LOL. Last night my team lead came looking for me trying to find our US dev who was rightfully offline. He seemed to think I had additional contact methods for her – nope, email & Teams is all I have. Not sure why he thought I’d have another way to get in touch with her, and she’s been working as hard as we have and even if I did have her cell number, I wouldn’t bother her at night, especially since we have other devs on his side of the world who are very talented and can handle things.

Well, time to go see what fresh nonsense today brings – but, IT IS FRIDAY.

*Trying to get 3 releases out the door in the span of roughly 5 days. Zero stars, do not recommend.
