April 30 is the end of the tax season. Since I work for an Accounting firm, today marks the end of the accountants madness.
I like to tell them, yet fear for my safety when I do, that during their busy season, it is quite slow for those of us in IT. The accountants only report issues if it stops them from being able to do taxes and what not. Minor issues don’t get reported. Not until after today.
Tomorrow, a lot of staff will be off. A lot of staff also take next week off. Then, the following week, typically anyway, IT becomes insane again with issues being reported that have been simmering for the last two months. I look forward to being a little busier, the days go by more quickly.
So, tonight we have the end of tax season party. We are going to a close by hotel for dinner followed by a casino night. Should be fun.
So, wish me luck in the casino, maybe I will win enough to get some decent prizes. A buffet for dinner is always good so it will be a good night regardless.
