So, the thing I’m working on with the 5/31 deadline? That I’d already said I’d put time to it this week to make sure it’s done on time even though I’m on PTO?  It’s incredibly annoying but not the end of the world – hey, sleep in, work a couple hours in blissful silence, go do the things I took the PTO for.

Tonight I get a text from my coworker, “Is there any chance you get that done by Friday?”

Sure, and monkeys might fly out my butt.  To have it done by Friday, I’d have to cancel ALL my plans and that sure as shit isn’t happening.

Told her I’d planned the remaining work around this 5/31 deadline – a deadline that has been widely and officially communicated.  “Well, OK, I can say we’re still on track to be done by 5/31 [in tomorrow’s meeting]”  Which we are.

This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten “can you get this done way before the actual deadline” and it’s annoying as fuck on a good day, but FFS.

I’ll still toss a couple hours a day to it, and I’ll put every second on my timesheet so I will be taking that lost PTO later, but no, it’s not getting done by Friday.

And on that note, I’m going to bed and sleeping the fuck in.
