    Yeah, I'm working today... :phhht not to happy about that, considering I told the manager in charge of scheduling, that I really needed 24 and 25th off. And as a Full-timer I AM entitled to PH days (public holidays) and I can just claim them as I want. I claimed 24,25,26 as my PH days, yet she still scheduled me for christmas closing shift.

    I'll be working 7:00pm-2:00am today. I am SO not looking forward this.

    Annnd...here we go: the mystery of "Boxing Day" solved.

    Maybe I'll celebrate Boxing Day this year in the traditional English way by going out and soliciting for gratuities.
    Glad I went to your link about the origins of Boxing Day because in Britain "soliciting" can have a COMPLETELY different meaning!! lol

    Well, I went by the restaurant to check everything out, coolers, freezers, etc and much to my dismay what did I find? A walk-in cooler that wasn't at proper temp. Thank goodness I didn't have much stock on hand as I get my delivery on Monday. I had to move a bunch of product into another walk-in. So much for my 3 days off this week. I ended up with today as my only day off and still had to do some work. Merry freakin' Christmas. I did have fun playing with the grandkids today.

    I can tell you one place where no one's working. I'm not complaining because I like for everyone who can to be off. We're in Helen, Georgia and the Huddle House is open. That's it. We have many snack items and also will have dessert here at the B&B. We'll survive quite well.
    When I worked at the hospital I had a very good friend who is a man. If I was scheduled to work Christmas, he took it and if he was scheduled for New Years, I took it. He liked to party on New Year's Eve. The only time he ever called in drunk the boss was unhappy. We solved his problem, and mine, nicely.
