when your work phone rings at 3:55am with an 'emergency'.

which turns out not to really be an 'emergency'..

but the customer won't give up, keeps pushing, wants you to call your boss...

And now its 6:15am and I'm at the office, trying to resolve an issue with someone in the UK who's not answering his phone!!!

Nah,

My phone's on and I'm in the office.
Call me if you want me to go kick someone though. I'm in the mood for it.

Malkore, I feel your pain. I've been here since about 5:45 this morning....Because I got a call that work is to "backed up"....Is it bad to want a HB at 8:07am....

Man that would be a hilarious prank. Imagine the following scenario (apologies if I get the grammer and diction wrong)

Some guy (orfy) shows up at this bloke's house;

Orfy: Pardon me, but are you Fatty McUseless?

FMcU: Yes, yes I am.

Orfy: Do you know a Mr.... Malkore?

FMcU: Yes, yes I do! Are you here to fix my computer issue?

Orfy: I certainly am!

*punt to the change-purse*

Orfy: Good day to you sir!

I know exactly what you mean. I get woken up all the time at work for toothaches and other trivial crap.

That's why they have me working these hours, so they can sleep. The good thing about night work is having an HB at 08:00 at the pool or grocery shopping with all of the housewives. (Do you like the size of this cucumber?)

Hate that. Calls in the first hour of sleep are the worst. 12,000 calls a year. Lights come on and the alarms goes off all night long.
