Well I got up bright and early this morning, well as bright as it can ever get on a Monday morning ready to set out for work nice and early as the download music festival had come to a end and we had all been warned to expect very heavy traffic.
After pondering ( all of three seconds) I decided to leave about 15 minutes early to be on the safe side.
And I was correct that it would be on the safe side.
In fact it was too safe! As not only was there no download traffic but there was barely any "regular" traffic either.
I arrived at work to find a lot of other baffled staff members who were there way too early as well who had all experienced the same thing. According to the gossip chain ( and it's not church so I can call a spade a spade here, or a gossip chain a gossip chain in this case :-) due to the weather a lot of the festival attendee's chose to leave the festival late last night instead. Hence the complete lack of traffic!
Fine for them but a little annoying for us. Still at least it gave us a early start to the day and the day started off great, fantastic even. We were getting through work at a fantastic rate, everything was going great and things were nice and quiet. Too quiet we quickly realised and a quick check of the holiday diary revealed that it seemed like half of europe was off on a Bank holiday today. Which was great for our workload today, we're going to be totally screwed tomorrow mind you but at least today went okay :-)
