I have had an advisory role on a design project at my architecture firm. The PM left on vacation for 10 days right before the deadline (today) so I jumped in, and worked all weekend , to get it over the finish line.
Today, I ask her about her vacation and she said she was gone for the first weekend but then just bummed around at home for the next week. I was willing to support her if she had a long planned out-of-town trip but I just couldn’t imagine sitting out a major deadline while someone else covered for me.
The captain goes down with the ship.
