Today is officially my last day (for now...) as an office-bound employee.  Official word has come down, we've been given a site closure date, and all employees at this location are now officially designated as remote employees as of tomorrow.  :cheers:

 

Soon as I am out of here, it's on like donkey kong, if donkey kong was being freed from a cubicle.

Are you going to steal the cube walls and burn them in your back yard?

It goes to show that patience sometimes pays off.  I really like my work, and my team, and the company I work for, so I "tolerated" going to the office instead of immediately trying to jump ship -- and now, I'm getting to go back to working from home, but with the same job/team/company - win/win!

Glad it worked out.  Sometimes you get ####ed by coincidence, but sometimes stuff can really just fall into place.

Just the associate - I've been putting it off too long.  The only Pro one I would want to take is the SysOp.but the boss likes this SA more for some reason

Makes you a better AWS salesman/evangelist. The old Microsoft certs in the late 90s were like that. Good luck!

Nah. Company has many remote workers in areas where they don't have an office presence. I'm not too worried.

I mean, I'm always a *little* worried. Support can be a tough place to make a living. But I'm less worried now than I was when I was worried my actual job performance was suffering...

Nice!  You'll be able to do the little things at home during the day again like baking.

 

I say go ahead and buy the nicest bread making machine out there.

Good thing you're not saying that to Code. He'd find a luxury model that costs more than a car.:)
