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
