Trying to get much work done on a Saturday is always an iffy proposition, but usually, if Iím fully committed, I can at least do whatís on my to-do list. Most Saturdays the people I work with leave me alone. In fact, thatís exactly the reason I do work on Saturday, so that I can stay with the tasks Iíve assigned myself and not have to zig and zag according to someone elseís whim.
Well, it didnít work out that way today, and now I still have that same to-do list, undone. I spent the day solving other peopleís problems, which isnít a bad thing and is part of my job but wasnít what I had in mind. I hope theyíre happy. No, I mean that. I really hope theyíre happy, because if not, my day was wasted.
