    Its a holliday, why do I have to work

    Wandering around the office today I could not help but noticing that everyone of importance (4 of 5 executives) took the day off. It is 60 degrees outside and sunny. I would much rather be doing almost anything than work.

    So in protest, what are you doing today instead of working like you are supposed to.

    I must say, this game is appealing. I do like monkeys throwing darts.

    Re: Its a holliday, why do I have to work

    My wife asked if I had the day off today, it hadn't even crossed my mind that people wouldn't be working today.

    It's a federal holiday. I get it off because I'm a government contractor.

    Government holiday. Some DC folks have tomorrow off, as well (officially for Inauguration Day, unofficially because getting to a job in the DC area tomorrow will be next to impossible)

    Re: Its a holliday, why do I have to work

    You need to work for the gov't, state, schools or a really good job with every holiday off to get today off!

    I have it off!!!! But, I have to makeup class on Thursday night.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    My wife is a lobbyist here in Des Moines and she has today off since the legislature isn't in session today. What a joke.

    Make that official... I'm 1 county away from having the day off and a 5 day weekend...

    They've closed all the bridges from Virginia to DC for tomorrow, numerous other restrictions / barriers on streets / super crowded Metros / enough people to keep an eye / crowds in general / security for the President (i.e. probably some building closures)
