Help. I'm being held hostage... Working the day before Turkey day rant.

Someone please come pay my ransom.

With the holidays here, our clients have provided nothing for my dept to do. I am stuck fixing the errors of other depts. The only "working" dept has had nothing to do for the whole day.

I continue to work at the mind numbing task.

Oh dear.... they are now warming up the Bio-Chem Weapons of Gastric Destruction. Yep they are warming up the leftovers from yesterday's Company Thanksgiving lunch. Nothing like eating reheat food that sat at room temp for at least 4 hours.

For the love for all that is wholesome and good in the world.... I hope we get pardoned before the noxious gasses start getting release.


Have a great Turkeyday y'all.

I let my staff go a couple of hours ago. I get lots done when I'm here alone and now that I'm done, I'm off, too.

Yea I have today off, but I have to work Sat to make up for it.

I also wanted to take the rest of my vacation (10 days left) this week.

Instead I was told that I have to work the next three Saturdays and there will be no taking time off till very, very late Dec
