The Official "I'm a loser at work the day after New Years Day" Thread

Morons working on 1/2/06 (2/1/06 for my European friends) representin'!!!



Same old story here...

No holiday, new to company, not enough accrued vacation to make it worth taking... etc.

Now... Someone find me a stream of bowl games or some college basketball.

My former co-worker just sent me an email saying that he spent a long time getting to work today (from Connecticut to NYC, trains still on holiday schedule) only to find an email from the boss saying "I hope you guys know we're taking Monday off." Whoops!

Of course, as a basement freelancer I'll be in my office just like I was on New Year's Day, New Year's Eve, etc etc etc... But you gotta love it!

Why all these threads about "Oh, I'm working on such and such a day that isn't even a holiday?"

It's Monday. Get to work! I worked yesterday for cyring out loud.

I am working, but since a lot of peeps took the day off anyway, I don't really have much to do.

I'm here, at my desk listenin' to Fireball Ministry - nice I get to listen to my CDs at work anyway. Oh, and I get *all* the coffee as the rest of the office staff is... elsewhere.

I'm here, but prob not much longer. It's pretty dead. I've been cleaning up old emails and stuff.

We're discussing midi-chlorians over in Movie Talk if anyone's feeling dangerous

I'm working, but at least I'm getting paid overtime, and it will be so damn slow I'll just read a book and watch movies on the laptop all day. So I don't really consider myself the loser in the deal.

You bet. But from the looks of where you're at the commute would be a bitch.
