only incidentally.  i work in a hospital, you don't get holidays off.
2018-01-14 01:38:48 AM  
I'm at a hotel, we also never close.  Holidays just mean I get paid more that day.
2018-01-14 02:06:23 AM  
2018-01-14 02:58:56 AM  
Yes. But only because I'm unemployed.
2018-01-14 03:26:38 AM  
No.  I basically sit inside an off-brand bunker and make sure the internet works nice for the north east seaboard for my company.  People like their netflix even on a holiday, I'm here to make sure they get it.
2018-01-14 03:30:22 AM  
Out of respect for MLK I will cease my job hunting until the following Tuesday.
2018-01-14 03:30:41 AM  
Yes, but I volunteered to be the one on duty that day. I wanted the holiday pay.
2018-01-14 03:31:53 AM  
I was supposed to go in, but it got canceled because the main company has off.
Why do you care anyway?
Are you stalking me?
You are NOT my supervisor!
2018-01-14 03:32:16 AM  
I do have MLK day off. I'm so excited! I'm going to sleep late and... have a dream.
2018-01-14 03:34:57 AM  
I should have most of it off. Depends on what time the band gets done Sunday night.
2018-01-14 03:39:41 AM  
Granted, federal holidays usually mean less hotel visitors, even on Columbus Day.  But this Monday doesn't look very slow, especially since this is usually the slow month.
2018-01-14 03:42:12 AM  
No but I get time and a half.  Got paid not to work on Christmas and New Year's though, that was cool.
2018-01-14 03:42:36 AM  
Yes. I'm not sure about the other law offices in town, though.
2018-01-14 03:54:16 AM  

NDP2: Yes. I'm not sure about the other law offices in town, though.

Oh, you're not sure? Well, how about you find out and get back to us. *eyeroll*
2018-01-14 04:01:18 AM  
I am, and the way some folks are acting, I must be a magician.  It's one freaking day, the banks are closed and there's no mail.  Even if I dance on top of the building, nothing's getting done.  Deal with it.

I always gave my employees the day off.
2018-01-14 04:25:46 AM  
Yes, but I'm retired so I have everyday off!

I don't have any holidays off.  I work for myself.  Work happens when it has to happen, otherwise when it doesn't have to happen, it doesn't happen.

I work whenever.  I will most likely be working Monday, yes.
2018-01-14 05:02:14 AM  
My employer would beat me if I didn't come in to work monday. I'm basically a wage-slave.

2018-01-14 05:40:04 AM  
Of course. Thanks Martin, sorry about recent events, there is still plenty of work to do.
2018-01-14 06:20:35 AM  

/though I went in for a couple hours Saturday and I'll probably go in for a few today
//unpaid hours, of course, salaried, etc.
2018-01-14 06:58:29 AM  
I don't, but my coworker does.  (Her teenage daughter is having surgery that day.)
2018-01-14 07:04:49 AM  
Yes. But I'm working an extra 9 hours this weekend for the other job, so it's kind of a wash.
2018-01-14 07:08:04 AM  
I do, But because of the backward farks here in Alabama, we have to be stigginit, and so the holiday is also Robert E Lee's birthday.
2018-01-14 07:52:56 AM  
No, private universities don't tend to take state or federal holidays.
2018-01-14 07:54:04 AM  
My clients are all working on Monday, so I am, too.

//can take off any day I want
///as long as I don't mind not making money that day
2018-01-14 08:03:34 AM  
Yep. We get all federal holidays off. And, just for fun, i took Tuesday and Wednesday off as well. I have a lot of Christmas liquor to get through
2018-01-14 08:14:27 AM  
I do. If conditions were right I would see if I can meet for lunch near his work. Maybe I will work out in the daytime instead of the usual evening instead.
2018-01-14 08:42:52 AM  
No, but I'm traveling.
2018-01-14 09:04:28 AM  
I do but most of my clients are in the banking industry so it will be a slow day.
2018-01-14 09:15:57 AM  
No. I'm not quite sure where I'm working (depends on how badly the kid I may be replacing farks up today) but I'm working. Got next Monday off at least.
2018-01-14 09:17:15 AM  

/proof before sending!
2018-01-14 09:31:42 AM  
No, but I'll be calling in for a surgery post-op.
2018-01-14 09:41:57 AM  
It's a company holiday,but due to expected call volume,they are cancelingit for us.

Feeding us and giving us an extra floating holiday.
2018-01-14 09:42:41 AM  
technically? yes.  Since the kids are also out of school? no
2018-01-14 10:45:15 AM  
yes. since the kids are out of school, yes.
2018-01-14 11:38:25 AM  
I'm on call 24x7/365.  What is this 'off' you speak of?
2018-01-14 12:27:48 PM  
Our place is open 24x7 but things always slow down on holidays so it's no big deal.
2018-01-14 12:51:15 PM  
My wife does, but once tax season starts she'll be on six-day work weeks until April 17th.

/I'm retired
2018-01-14 01:12:19 PM  
YES!  I work for the govt. thank you taxpayers
2018-01-14 01:46:42 PM  
No, I'm in retail, sort of
2018-01-14 04:09:09 PM  
No, but it will be as easy as a Sunday. Get paid extra whether I'm on the schedule or not.
2018-01-14 04:27:38 PM  
No, but I live in Normay.

I hate that the stores are full of MLK merchandise the day after Christmas.
2018-01-15 08:59:16 AM  
It's a paid holiday for me but I usually end up working it.  No complaints though since I get 2.5X pay for working a paid holiday.
