I am "working" if you're using the term loosely. I mentally checked out shortly after I got here at 8 and I'm waiting for 5. My goal for today? Do as little as humanly possible. I get a 4 day weekend, hooray!

I have class tonight. It's not so bad though.

I will be suffering with you! I work only a half day tomorrow from 7 till 11. I am working a regular day on Friday though. I probably won't take a lunch break though so I can make more money so I will really be working 9 hours that day.

Are you working retail or something?

I'm still working, but just for another hour. I'm off tomorrow, but then back to work early Friday morning. I do not work in retail either...thankfully.

15 more minutes for me!

Not that I'm, you know, watching the clock or anything.

I'm off in 25 minutes but since I carpool and wife doesn't get to leave early, I still have 2 more hours.

No but the company I work with deals with both Canadian and US companies so we still have to be here on holidays. We just have a skeleton crew on holidays.

My company kind of sucks because the only holidays where my department is completely off is Christmas and New Years Day. Our customer service is here 24/7 every single day of the year though.

Ah. When you said you'd be skipping lunch to make more money I thought you might have a commission-based retail job, considering Friday is Black Friday. Any other day I wouldn't even think about it.

Well since I am working on a holiday I really get paid two and a half times what I would normally make. It shouldn't be as busy as it normally is on Friday so it should be easy enough to just eat at my desk.

Yikes. You better be getting time and a half!

I work Friday. I like to think that while people are out spending money and getting angry at other people for being in their way, I'm making money and getting angry for not being able to stay at home and play.

I left work at 12:30, not exactly a hard day.

Haha. This, for sure.

I've got my typical 9-7 shift today :(

I only have to work 4-7 on Friday though, for some reason and then Saturday. Not much time for Wii-U!

Worked until 10:30 tonight, and working 1PM - 9pm on Friday, the store is closed on Thursday. Not exactly a work slave.

I'm at work, it's 4:36 AM right now. I'm essential personnel as our office is critical to the mission and requires 24/7 manning. However, I'm the one that volunteered to work this shift. It works out for many reasons, though. 1. I work Sun-Thurs Midnight - 8 AM anyway, so it's like working any other week. 2. I'm not missing out on any festivities since my family doesn't eat Thanksgiving dinner at 3 AM. 3. I do not get overtime, but I do get 8 hours of comp time accrued for working on holidays, which I have saved up and plan to use towards the end of the year when I'll burn through my "use or lose" sitting at home doing absolutely nothing for the last 2 1/2 weeks of the year.
