I was curious as to which Fugazi song it was. They are one of my favorites.

Ah yes. I remember feeling, mistakenly, that I was indispensable and that the company would collapse if I took leave. Truth is that I probably would have collapsed if I didn't take leave.
I guess the bottom line is that a firm is under-resourced if it can't afford to honour it's staff holiday entitlement.
Anyway, I am now retired and the firm I left is still going strong. They're not missing me at all, damn it!

It was Margin Walker with the discordant axe blast right up front. I just listened to it again before posting this and the Pavlovian response is still strong within me. My wife walked by, my Blackberry co-dependent, and she stopped in her tracks too, thinking I had to go to work.

Great song! 13 songs is a great album. Waiting room is still heavy in my rotation.

I have the same problem when it comes to getting my monthly pay. Will they, won't they? Will they kick up a fuss this time? Will they say no and force me to carry over some salary to next year?

Getting what you're entitled to based on your employment contract is hard.

Here our DBA staff is 5, 4 Oracle and 1 SQL Server. We have been trying to find another DBA that has experience in Oracle and SQL Server for 9 months and come up zero. So, for years now... I continue to the SQL Server DBA. Not fun not having a backup person.
