The week in numbers

At work, we have a voluntary on-call system. Basically, you carry a cell phone from Tuesday-Tuesday, and get paid $x regardless of how many times you get called. Since I've been needing some extra cash, I volunteered last week.

Some statistics:
  • Number of times the on-call phone rang before last week, in its 6+ month history: 3
  • Number of times the on-call phone rang last week: 4

When I carried the pager for my week in October, it didn't go off at all. When I covered a coworker's week so I could have most of November/December off from pager duty, it went off 7 times.

Ugh. Glad to know that sort of thing doesn't happen only to me, I suppose.

Murphy's Law. Sooner or later, if you carry a pager, it'll happen to you.
