Comments: Wasted Day.

Heh, that's exactly what my company does, except they give us a 5 day for Christmas and the Friday after Thanksgiving.

At least you get days off. I am expected to work whether open or not!

Stop your incestant whining about having days off.

Christ I would rather sit and home and watch the dust settle than have to work anyday.

Dude, 11.25 hours, (or 675 minutes) of Firefly is pretty awesome. Quit with your goram whining!! :-)

Would you feel any better if I told you that I worked the Monday after Christmas, the Monday after New Year's, and yesterday? Since I only get paid when I'm working, I REALLY bitch about holidays. Screws up all the finances.

Most companies actually work MLK day -- just the gubmint takes off usually. So work, dammit!

I spent most of the day Monday watching Serenity and the entire season of Firefly, when I wasn't playing with my kids or fixing my mom's fax machine. My husband was on the computer in the other room.

If it turns out that we're twins, separated at birth, I may just have to shoot myself.

*I'll* give you sympathy, Contagion. When I was at the bank, Monday holidays just blew the biggest chunks, because there was an extra day's worth of transactions to catch up on.

What made it worse was that I had to do that week's currency shipment before the doors opened instead of prepping it on Monday afternoon. Just threw everything off.
