Ah, mandatory minimum callout times...

At previous employer, on call after 10pm on any night incurred a minimum 1.5 hour callout at weekend rate (double time). The best ones were the calls at 22:05 which involved the ops person saying "we've had alert XXX out of server YYY", me responding "yeah, that can wait until morning", "Ok, thanks" Ka-ching!
