Off Topic

Canada has a three day weekend today. The US has one upcoming. I think every weekend should be a three day weekend. I think we would all be able to suffer through a four day work week and not complain for at least a year, maybe two.

It's literally impossible for me to agree more strongly.

I think I want to party at Rob Ford's house.

LowKey said...

Every weekend is a 3 day weekend for me. But I work 4 x 10hr days to have it that way. Not complaining, it was my choice.

Seven of Eleven said...

@DRAGON! If Lotta shows up, my day will be made.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Dragon, once you were gone, they realized what all you did for them.
Excellent news!
Miss your wit, tho.

Bacon Ranch said...

Yaaaaaaaaay Dragon! Grats

Lowkey, I would take that schedule as well, if for no reason than to look forward to those glorious 3 days off. As long as you can adjust your sleep schedule to enjoy it :)

My ex used to work for a place that had 9/80 options for getting in 80 hours per paycheck, so he had every other Friday off. It was kind of nice.

@LowKey.. I did the 4x10 thing when it was offered back in my 20s as well.. it was awesome!

Violet said...

I work Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Every week is a 4 day weekend for me.
Hey Dragon.

Violet said...

If it wasn't for those darned kids and husband who require domestic attendance it would be bliss.

Steampunk Jazz said...

It would mean an extra slug day for me. if I can , when I have two days off, I try to do all the Productive stuff in one day. Day 2, as much of nothing as is possible...;D

The Real Dragon said...

@Seven <3 Aww she hasn't been on?

Brea Lowe said...

What's a weekend? haha I work every day all day pretty much. At least I live in one of the most beautiful places in America!

GatorGirl said...

I had to call in today just to get the things done I was too drunk to do over the weekend like grocery shop and go to home depot...I call it a mental day off

The Real Dragon said...

@Jazz Thanks. I'll try to get on more. I have week off so all bets are off lol

IDoTheRobot said...

I shave my head this Sunday for childhood cancer research! Couldn't be more excited for the 3 day weekend. <3

The Real Dragon said...

Thanks Bacon!

Happy May 24!

Since this IS OT and all, awesome book club last night!! We need lots of book recommendations from everyone for 3 weeks from now, throw something out there! Woot!

Bacon Ranch said...

Wow Robot, that's amazing!! You are a shining star :)

Lil P said...

Just curious what would you do if you ran into someone from work on their lunch? This fear keeps me stuck inside house when I call I sick. My supervisor has admitted to driving by my house. Saw me shovelling snow this winter too but I had a bad cold still has to be done!

Bacon Ranch said...

Nothing wrong with that Lil, as you say it had to be done. I would think your boss would have better things to do than check up on someone who didn't want to make everyone else sick.
Lunch? Well uhhhh maybe you are picking it up for your uncle. You know, the one who needs a kidney.

Harry Knuckles said...

Years ago worked in a factory that manufactured leaf and coil springs for the Big 3. We had 12 hour shifts, from 6 to 6, with one week of 3 days on and 4 days off followed by a week of 4 days on and 3 days off. Sometimes it was a bitch to stay awake on the night shift but overall pretty much everybody liked it.

Bacon Ranch said...

..better yet you can say you were at the bookstore, picking up the latest Stuart MacBride novel.
It helps the kidneys, those booksies.

Snootches said...

This, Enty, is an amazing idea. Americans work too much and need a day off from all the parties, graduations, weddings, baseball games, and other annoyances that get jammed into Saturdays and Sundays.

Renoblondee said...

@Dragon! Yay missed you!

GatorGirl said...

Luckily we have 7 PPT days a year personal something or other where we don't have to give a reason we just call in a say I'm taking a ppt day and no questions asked. .. It's awesome but hard not to burn them up quickly

auntliddy said...

Robot!!!! How are you??? Enjoy being light headed, lol

texas rose said...

You would be amazed how many people have a 3 day weekend every weekend with alternate work schedules and telework (esp telework.)

Eros said...

And the choir said 'amennnnnn Enty'
Lol

Sherry said...

I would love doing the 3 day weekend as well.

Congrats Dragon! Am I to understand the place that let you go then changed their minds and made you a manager to boot?

Robot..how lovely of you to show your support. Bless you!

The Real Dragon said...

@Reno <3

@Sherry Funny, right lol.

airhead said...

I was just saying this today, during summer we should have all Mondays off!

IDoTheRobot said...

@libby

Hey! I'm doing well. Pregnant with #3 and excited about it. How are you?! I've missed you!

Thanks guys. :)

IDoTheRobot said...

^^@LIDDY ugh, my phone autocorrected that. My apologies <3

Dingle Barry said...

Seven day weekends aren't as exciting as you'd think they'd be. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?
