It was raining again earlier, so it meant that I had to go to work wearing my hat and jacket again. On the plus side though, the vehicular traffic wasn’t as bad as it was the day before, and the MRT service was actually working this time. That said, given the fact that it was raining I had to take extra care not to step into extra-deep puddles, else my sandals would be ruined.
So I arrived at work, to find that my system still hadn’t been fixed. Rather than send me home, my team coach decided that I should just stick around for the shift, so I tried looking for a station that wasn’t tied down to my employee profile (which meant that I could use it to browse the internet without having to go into Citrix, which I still didn’t have access to). Luckily I found just that, and what’s more it was unlocked too! Must have been used by a team coach from the night shift, but I didn’t question my luck — at least I’d have something to focus my attention on this time around (even if it IS just browsing the net), instead of just finding an abandoned corner of the floor and sleeping for the rest of the day…
And that’s pretty much how I spent the rest of my day there. I kind of felt sorry for my teammates who were taking in calls without me, but even if it was indirectly my fault that my profile went down, there’s nothing I could do about it now but wait for the IT people to fix things… But since it’s going to be Independence Day shift tomorrow, well, this situation will likely continue for a little while longer.
It was raining by the time I got off shift, and rather strongly too. I was reminded quickly that I had forgotten something important — my jacket. After quickly running back to the work floor and retrieving it, it was straight home and, with the jacket I was able to get there relatively dry.
Too bad that the rain only started to strengthen again around late-afternoon, which forced me to cancel my plans to go to the gym. Mmph. Going to have to make up for that tomorrow.
And that’s how my day went.
