Not so for my situation. As you can imagine, as the restaurant industry has all but ground to a halt, those few that remain have halted all maintenance spending, even government institutions are ceasing spending where possible. Work trickles in mostly from grocery stores in emergency situations.Coder wrote: ↑Fri Mar 20, 2020 12:15 pmSame here! I’ve worked close to 15 hour shifts every day, punctuated with the brief lunch then “oh, could you help me with this”. I vow to make next week more normal - this is just an outlier.crfriend wrote: ↑Fri Mar 20, 2020 11:31 amThe "work from home" bit is bothersome,though. Without powerful mental restraint, and a strong ability to say, NO!" to the boss, I've found myself working positively insane shifts, and the change in mental and physical status is already apparent. Tuesday was a mild day, I only worked 9 hours; Wednesday was insane at 14; and yesterday almost as bad at 12 -- all of it with unrelenting interruptions and stress, causing nothing to get done. I'd been hoping to get some stuff done that's complex, requires a lot of design and engineering, and which hasn't gotten done in literally years. Well, that ain't going to happen... It is impossible to do good design work when you can't get more than five minutes without a distraction or a meeting. Meetings, of course, are scheduled for when they'll be most disruptive.
I'm not really sure what to expect, but I wouldn't be surprised if hours are cut significantly in the coming months.
Jenn and I are debating canceling my 40th birthday getaway to Gatlinburg this December as the trip will cost over $1000 and its starting to look like I'll be burning up all of my vacation time on this dammed virus.
After vacation is used up.... I dunno. Trying not to worry, and I admit I take comfort in the fact that millions are in the same boat. Amber, who works at the local KFC has seen her and her coworkers hours slashed... everyone there is worried sick.
