Always check the caller ID

SATURDAY AFTERNOON
Ring Ring

ME:  Hello?
CLIENT:  Oh, great...you're working this weekend

TO MYSELF:  *%$! (insert expletive here) well, I am now
ME:  Sure, how can I help you? (strained politeness)




SUNDAY EVENING
Still working...


Sorry to vent...this client, weighing heavy on my mind.  Hey, I have to work some weekends...it's the nature of the beast.  I don't mind....I do mind, however, the presumption I'll be available without notice.

Next Saturday...I'll be checking the caller ID

Always, always check the ID. We get this crazy stuff too. I thing people forget you have a family, or a life.

I expect to work weekends....but coming off a working weekend last week as well. This one surprised me. The consequences...I've had waaaay too much mountain dew, two doughnuts and a piece of cold pizza. Ugh
