NOBODY is in the office! I don’t have enough vacation to take today off like everybody else I work with. It’s so quiet and I have nothing to do, really. But I get Dec 24-Jan 3 off (paid vacation) so I shouldn’t complain.
Is it 3:30pm yet? Or 11am so I can go out for pho’ for lunch?

It’s dead here too. AND I have to work tomorrow. AND Monday. Ughhhh.
Not looking forward to crawling up the Thruway tomorrow after work to get to my parents’!
Also, pho? So jealous! Around my office is a culinary wasteland.

Dead here too! Unfortunately I work in HR so even if I had vacation time, year end is too important to us. We are having pizza lunch today and exchanging Secret Santa gifts. Come on 4:30!!!

I work in a hotel, so you can imagine how dead we are.
As a manager, I am required to work either Thanksgiving or Christmas, and this year, it is Christmas, so I work Monday-Friday this week.

Ugh. Yep, dead here too. I work at a University and grades were due yesterday. So, no faculty, no students (they had to be out of the dorms last friday) and almost no staff. Except me, with my no-vacation-time since I had to go and get married a few months ago. 😉

I just finished my shift at 0700 and I have to say – it was ridiculous. The longest 9 hours I’ve been through in a long, long time.

I’ve been not focused all week. Urgh. But we get out today at 1pm, 4 days off, 2 days on, 5 days off. Thank the lord. I’ve been in a funk this month and am really looking forward to coming in refreshed in January.

I am supposed to be at work but my boss is living it up in the Caribbean so I am coming in late. Right now I’m in my PJs watching Regis & Kelly.

You all read my mind!!! I can’t wait until 4:30 to go home and then head to my parent’s house for CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
And I’m trying to save my vacation time for my wedding/honeymoon in September.

I’m in the office today and there are very few people here. We’ve all got tomorrow through Jan 3rd off, and the clock today just ain’t moving fast enough!!!

Oh trust me, this pho place is like, 20 minutes away. We’re all taking long lunches because it’s our last work day and it’s so slow. Only two or three of us have had it before so we’re trying to convince our other midwestern coworkers to try it.
A big bowl of hot steamy noodle and beefy goodness sounds amazing–it’s like 45 outside but it’s rainy and gross. Perfect!
I feel bad for even complaining when most of you have to work near the holidays!
@said8me, any chance you work in the aerospace industry? Everything is notoriously shutting down for everybody I know in that industry…it seems like few other industries shut down for such a long time over the holidays.

At least you’re not running around like a mad woman! I work with my fam. and this time of year it’s REALLY dead – so I’ve been doing a lot of sitting around, BUT HEY! At least we got WEDDINGBEE!

UHG! HELP ME! We get paid vacation 25th-3rd though, and I’m saving my regular vacation days for the wedding/honeymoon. It’s just totally boring today.
