It’s Christmas Eve, I’m at work, and I really don’t know why. All the offices (private and public) that we do work with are off today (or if they’re in office they’re not actually working) so I’m sitting here until 1:00 (i think they’re going to try and say 3:00 but it’s not happening) doing nothing but surf wedding bee. I’d rather be home in my PJ’s by the tree.
Who else is stuck at work today?

me me me. they generally let us off early but no idea what time. so i’m just sitting around waiting it out…. and like you i really don’t have any work to do. barely worth the commute costs. my fiance came into the office today too (we work for the same company) but his bosses are off so he is spending his day at the gym and the chiropractor waiting for me to be dismissed. must be nice!

All you guys who are leaving early make me sad 🙁 I will probably be here until 4:30 or maybe an hour earlier if they allow it.

I’m working (in retail, at the liquor store) until 6:15, tonight. My shift was supposed to start at 1:15pm, but I got ‘conned’ into coming in at 10:15am instead. I’m a glutton for punishment, I guess. The line-up will be snaked through the store, for sure…

@mu_t: I’m glad I’m not alone. I’m really not sure what I’m going to do all day. There’s no point in getting going on a new project right now as we’re closed until the 2nd. I’ve finished everything that was on my desk…
@brighteyedgirl: ick! I don’t envy you at all. BUT I have to say that the LCBO is one of my favourite places at the holidays. You guys are always smiling and happy (even when you should really want to shoot someone) and I always find everyone super helpful (at least at the locations I go to). This year I was on the ball and I went and got my booze on Sunday morning right when the store opened and everyone was hiding from the storm. It was perfect – no line for me and all the cashiers just waiting to help me 😀

@nearly-mrs-R: lol – took me a second when you said Jumper – I think of a jumper as a one piece suit for babies/toddlers, then I realized your in the UK, Jumper = Sweater, if I remember correctly. That’s so fun, are you wearing a ridiculous outfit or something sane and civil?
