Why take PTO when I'm just gonna be sitting at home anyway right? How's work going for you bros?

FML I just had my outlook calendar set to LAST WEEK so I was getting ready for a couple calls and wondering why TF I had so many meetings during the week of Christmas :omg:

Am dumb but they keep paying me. :cool:

Same. Never take off Christmas week because it’s basically free PTO and senior leadership always lets people go at noon on Christmas Eve.

Yep. I even offered to cover on call for a client for the next 2 weeks.... while there is a change freeze and nobody is working.

Pitted, so pitted
I let most of my team take time off so I'm covering. About to get serious on my cloud certs though - what approach worked for you to knock so many of the AWS certs out?

Interested in this as well, I would like to get some certs around AWS. I don't do much with it under my current job function but have used it plenty in personal stuff and have plans to move a few of our apps to run in the cloud over the next few years.
