You approved early leave without permission.
Prepare to die.

My boss has a very strict rule about the workday before a holiday: 1pm is Bacardi time. You can stay and work if you want, but she is going to be getting her rum on and you probably don't want to be around for that.

A poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every twenty-fifth of December! But I suppose you must have the whole day. Be here all the earlier next morning.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: He just wanted them to have more time to enjoy their Hot Cocoa Sampler Boxes

I didn't bother giving out hot cocoa sampler boxes. It was far to much effort to poop in each one.

My name is Johnny Montoya. You let your subordinates go home early. Prepare to be placed on administrative leave.

I had a boss who used to call (from home) at 10 til 5 on the day before every holiday just to "check in and see how things were going". He died at his desk. Karma is a biatch.

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: hutchkc: Been there done that, never got in trouble through. Figure if you don't like the way I run my department then maybe you shouldn't have given it to me. As long as the work gets done they why be so petty and care.

Bit'O'Gristle: Big farking deal..its Christmas, giving them a 5 hour head start is just a nice thing to do, and lets them be with their families sooner. I can see your point, but the guy who suspended him looks like a farking Scrooge. Better just to pull the guy aside and say "you should have run this by me first" instead of suspending him. Kind of a dick thing to do on a holliday.

Mudboy: Fark Em. They should not have left me in charge.
I did it before and I'll do it again. I still don't care if I get suspended or fired.

The Southern Dandy: I'd take a suspension so my employees could leave early on Christmas Eve.

And fark anyone else who might be depending on them to be on that job at that time (you know, the time everyone else had EXPECTED them to be on the job, the time their customers had been TOLD that they would be on the job), right?

If you've been at the DMV for two hours waiting for your number to be called, you're only three people away from finally getting up there to get your license or tags renewed, only to have the supervisor come out and say, "hey, folks, I'm in a Christmas mood, so we're shutting down right now so my employees can go home to spend more time with their families"? I'm guessing you might have a different opinion about what a nice guy he is.

That's right! Why the fark are you at the DMV on Christmas Eve? Go Home! The world doesn't revolve around you. The world takes a break once in a while and this is one of them. Just because you've farked your own shiat up to the point you have to stand in line at the DMV on Xmas Eve is on you, not the DMV. The DMV is CLOSED!! GO HOME AND CELEBRATE XMAS!

Amateurs all.

As state employees a real suspension is when the office has a whiskey-laden party on state property during state working hours!

Real government celebrations can't afford those Hookers-and-Blow parties that the TeaParty corporate sponsors throw.

Five hours early! If you want the day off take a vacation day.

If it's convenient, sir.

It's NOT convenient. A full day's pay for no work done.

It's only once a year, sir.

Poor excuse for picking a man's pockey every December 25th. You'll be here all the earlier the next day.

Yes, sir. Except that I'll be hungover. And late.

My boss is wonderful on Christmas eve he left 4 hours early and left his work for the rest of us to finish we managed to do it quick enough to leave an hour and a half early. He wonders why nobody in the office respects or trusts him. He got all pissy at me when I went on vacation because he forgot how to do the work he makes me do that he is supposed to do.

I could see this as being a serious issue if he let them leave AND they still got paid for a full day's work.

What about when your boss gets the OK from her boss to close the office early, but instead of telling everyone she just leaves at noon to go shopping while the rest of us work?
