Twice now (in this role) I've been contacted, on my personal mobile, whilst away on Annual Leave...

First time I went into work (was flying home anyway - they could swing if I'd had to take an early flight) - had to "invite myself" (aka gate crash) the meeting about the "emergency". Turns out it was nothing to do with me - although I did point out a few things that stopped them making a complete hash of the "recovery"

Second time I was not only on leave but also in an A&E department waiting for my wife to get some treatment. I advised them over the phone where to find the documentation on how to proceed and added a few additional pointers.

There won't be a third time.
