For those with a typical 9-5, is anyone else working Monday? I assumed, wrongly, that my office would be closed. We just got the internal memo saying we're open.

I'm kinda pissed about that. If Christmas falls on a Tuesday, we don't work Monday. Pretty sure the same goes for New Years.


We're working. I need to bring entertainment.

We are shut down...just means a floating holiday is used (vs. it really being an extra day off). We get 10 holidays and a couple move depending on when the holidays actually fall. My wife and most everyone I know don't get it off though.


Same for us.

Got a bonus half day Friday because everyone just decided not to come back from lunch, which was nice.

I was off Monday and yesterday.

This year we also get the Friday before Labor Day weekend off as well. It's nice to get a couple of 4-day weekends.

We got an email a few weeks ago from CEO saying we are closed so we had time to plan trips.

Besides the obvious issues with taking away her paid ticket, that's so wrong on a safety standpoint. Imagine if there had been some turbulence and they were seriously hurt because he was on her lap. I've flown with a 18-month old in my lap and that was hard enough, I can't imagine a 27-month old boy. Looking forward to my family flight with United over Thanksgiving, ha.

Interview a few. I probably met with 5-6 before I found someone I liked. It's the people that make the company

Funny how moving from the city to the burbs changes your mindset on local crime. We live in this quiet liitle corner of Northbrook, nothing ever goes on here.

Yesterday about 7pm, I'm coming home with my 5-year old daughter in the car, from a movie. I turn there corner and there are like six Northbrook Police squad cars all parked around my house, a bunch of cops standing around, including a crowd of them on my driveway. I parked nearby and flagged one down, he said there was a domestic situation like half a mile away, the guy ran and jumped into the creek one door down from our house. They caught the guy, so all clear.

But I have to say, it's weird how your mind builds a bubble even if you don't intend it too, then it feels very weird when it pops. Having the kid with me just amplifies it.
