    Last year I was scheduled for an 8 hour cashier shift on the Friday after. I wanted to cry by the end. I told them I had family obligations this year and wouldn't be able to work.

    Yep, I'm working Friday. When you are self employed, no paid vacations. I will probably work Saturday also, I have a remodel to finish by the 1st.

    lucky ass!

    I'm off for the rest of the week. seems unreal tho, since I haven't been back to work but a week today.

    the big question is how long do you have off for Christmas? we normally shut the plant down for 2 weeks but this year, it's going to be 3 wks. luckily I have enough vacation time left to cover it :D .

    no work...no morals..no decency..

    I have a friend who works at a parts store that I also worked at 11 years ago..he said the woman who co-owns and runs the place hadn't said anything about Christmas,so he asked if they were going to have the friday before,or the monday after Christmas off,since it falls on a sunday this year..

    She said "its not a scheduled day for you to work--as far as I'm concerned its not a holiday"! :eek1: --he said all the workers are going to ask the other half-owner if they can get at least 8 hours of "straight pay",or take one of the days off so they can travel to spend time with family..the lady said "we'll,see,but I don't see it happening!.. :mad: ..tell me again why I'd rather face a firing squad,than go back to work for a place like that...

    Our state attourney general had to get a court order to prevent Wal-Mart from opening in MA on Thanksgiving day!..they wanted it to be "bussiness as usual",but many workers called and E-mailed to complain it violated our "Blue Laws",which date back to the pilgrims,but seem to be challenged more every year..its like we cant have ONE day off with our families any more!.. :mad:

    I hope none of you guys work for General Motors..this week,30,000 workers were told that they will be out of work first of the year!...HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!...how come they always wait until the week before "Thanksgiving" to give workers the ax???...

    I'm thinking of living in a tent,away from society..move to the mountains ,far away from greed and slavery....Grizzly Adams had the right idea.. :crazy:
