Default Getting Hosed

Just got this email:

Paul,

Are you available to work the next two weekends to support the PDACS TFTP (and to get the GPCAM/SAS requirements verified)?

...


Now normally, I'd say "hey check the vacation schedule" but that satellite waits for no one. I did the s/w for that system and they are bringing it on line with the satellite; I gotta be there.

So guess what is next weekend? I told them that I want every assurance that come next week we are absolutely damn sure that I will be in that high bay getting this done if I'm going to cancel my time off (and be forced to miss CM).

I love my work, really do, and I get paid silly money to do it but trust me, I got stress round the clock and to a very large degree, they own me.
