Just a minor managerial oversight

I just found out a few minutes ago, via the earsplitting voice of Chimp-bo, that tomorrow is a company holiday. Nobody, my manager included, has actually told me that the office is closed; I would have come in to work as normal, finding the office empty and dark, miffed that I could have slept in, one less gallon of gas in the tank.

In the 16 years that I have been in the working world, as far as I recall, this is the first employer that has been closed on Veterans' Day.

So thanks, Chimp-bo.

We're working today... Notice that I'm making blog rounds. Ssshhh!

I heard recently on the news that they are estimating that something like 20% of the work week is now "wasted" on blogging. Though I can bet there are people in the company I work for getting paid to blog and read blogs. I need that job!
