The Week from Hell

Having a Federal Holiday in the middle of the week sucks!!!

Yeah that's right, I said a paid holiday sucks.

I mean in the grand scheme of it all, it wasn't that bad but think about it.

You work on Monday and then Tuesday is just like a Friday.

But then on Tuesday night you go downtown and take a cruise out on the lake with your friends to watch the fireworks from the water and don't get home until 1:00 am.

So still, not too bad, because you don't have to wake up early the next morning but it is a Holiday anyways so you want to have friends over for a cookout.

That cookout involves all sorts of Forced Housecleaning and Forced Food Preparation, that you really couldn't prep for because you had to work two days before the party.

So then you have the cookout and you kick your friends out early because after all it is a "School Night" and you have to get up early and go back to work.

Thursday seems like a Monday but at least you know that tomorrow REALLY is Friday but mentally you're still half asleep because you just crammed a whole weekend into a period of about 24 hours.

Friday comes and because you weren't clever enough to schedule your vacation correctly you're stuck sitting at your desk doing nothing because all of the people that you work with were smarter than you and decided to take vacation.

But at least it's Friday and I was able to turn off my alarm clock this morning....two days of sleeping late, that can't be a bad thing.

I mean geez, if Prez Bush can Pardon (and you know he will) his old buddy Scooter (btw, what kind of adult goes by the name Scooter?) couldn't he make the Holiday fall on a Monday or a Friday.

So now there's only one more Holiday and then Summer is officially over.

Look at it this way, while they burned up a vacation day, you got paid to sit there and relax.
