Who else is at work today...

Federal employee here... Even though everyone else seems to be off today, we Fed's never get any "day after" holiday's off. Just 7 1/2 more hours to go at work!

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!!

Heh, I am a consultant. We never get days off.

I will, however, scoot out a bit early to catch the LSU-Arkansas game. I have a few extra hours to work with.

Stuck at work as well. Only one other here in the office and we just started for this company so we're the low one's on the pole. All good though, it's quiet and I can get stuff done.
Cheers!

I'm on the bottom end of the totem pole too! So it's just me and those that don't have any vacation time left who are in today.

I'm working today because I work for a hospital as a consultant. I think it is really funny that the majority of people on here are consultants and government workers. What are you guys complaining about, I might be here, but I'm not working.

I'm working today, and had to work a few hours yesterday. A boat was sinking, so we had to pull it out of the water and fix the dock sections it broke.

Self employed here. I worked on Thanksgiving Day and I'm back here working today. We work most holidays, including Sundays, and don't get any paid vacation time.

True... I've shuffled a lot of papers but haven't really gotten anything done... which should be obvious since I'm reading Foo! hehe!

I'm also a Federal employee. The shipyard I work at is technically shut down today (force leave), but since my office is only a tenant on the shipyard we are not shut down. There aren't many of us here, but it beats taking leave to fight with the Black Friday crowd. Gonna head home in a few.

Ha! I'm getting paid 1-1/2 to NOT go shopping with my wife.
I should buy some lottery tickets on the way home. Muwuhahaha!

Only thing is, looking from my office window I can see Mt. Diablo 80 miles away, the warm sun is coming through the window, and this makes me lust for a spin right now.

County employee here and have off, but state workers don't.

I did stop by work, but only to pick up my black shoes, and since it was on the way, it wasn't too much trouble.
