Thanks to this week’s topic contributors @db_user @songxuecheng.

:soccer: The once-every-four-years nationwide celebration, the 2022 Qatar World Cup, is about to begin. Surely, all the football-loving TiDBers are eagerly anticipating it!

:soccer: Imagine… the World Cup has started… You sit down in front of the TV, full of passion, ready to cheer with a drink in hand. :beers:
At this moment, the familiar and dreaded work phone rings :scream:, it turns out there’s a problem with the database. Although it’s not a very urgent issue, your boss asks you to work overtime. At this point… would you go? :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth:

(PS: There’s no boss here, so we can discuss freely~ Also, I hope all TiDBers won’t encounter the above situation :p)

I usually don’t watch soccer, but I know that only the Chinese men’s soccer team can stop me from working overtime~ :wink:

I don’t have the chance anymore, haven’t watched a game in years~ :see_no_evil:

The key is, no matter where the problem is, I will definitely know about it before the boss~ :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I might have received an alert while the boss is still watching the game.

I have to go, it’s a responsibility as a programmer, and besides, I don’t watch the World Cup haha.

Go, not solving it makes me uncomfortable. I’m not a football fan.

If it’s a message from M, then you can continue watching the game…

I will, although it’s my idea, I don’t really watch the World Cup much. However, I still quite like the atmosphere of the World Cup. It’s been three years, and it’s been a long time since I felt that kind of atmosphere.

If it doesn’t affect the business, our leader won’t ask us to work overtime. The happiness of having a good leader!

It’s still worth watching the opening ceremony. If someone needs something, I’ll quickly finish it. I can’t focus on anything else until it’s done.

Watching the World Cup while fixing issues :joy:

I still have to work overtime, but not watching the World Cup, instead from under the covers… The World Cup was something I pursued when I was younger.

I’m going to watch the overtime team, they’re sure to win the championship :trophy:

Since it’s known to be neither urgent nor important, it can be put off for a while. :blush:

According to the boss’s instructions, handle it urgently as it might be used for a demonstration to a major client. You can watch the game replay later.
