On Monday

Yesterday, Monday, June 21, 2021, I completed a task and walked away from the desk. I stopped to chat with a coleague which degraded into a grievance story about my reality. He has similar grievances so we connect on the same frequency. The conversation ended and I strolled to the bathroom and did my business and strolled back to my desk. Immediately upon sitting down I saw the alert that I had brought down the Company web site with the task I had completed before walking away from my desk.

Ugh. I quickly found the error I made and the site was back up and potential customers were submitting their contact information for the sales department to follow up on. So all was square in the world.

Yet, I felt bad. Not only for the coding error I made which brought down the site but for the extended conversation, the slow bathroom visit, and for the retelling of my grievance story for the thousandth time.
