    I am sure this is in the wrong place, but I was curious and hope the mods will leave it for a bit.

    I will be working, but I gave all my employees the day off so they could enjoy a 4 day weekend with their families and friends. The younger kids especially seemed to appreciate it. Little things like this simple act has helped build loyalty over the years.

    We need a good job button but winner works too. I have Monday off. It happens a lot because my clients are basically lazy and have a ton of vacation days to use up. But it works well for me so no complaints.

    I have a meeting with a client but not until 2. I would have kept my normal schedule if need be, though. Good for the OP giving his people the day off :thup:

    I'm working by choice. Since I'm self-employed. I like the quiet days with no Teleconferences and client emergencies. .

    And of course -- my "real job" at USMB -- we NEVER get a day off. :rofl: If we did, the place would be full up with junk Spam from Vietnam and serious melt-down threads...

    I only work when I feel like it. However I feel like it a lot more than I thought I would when I declared that I would retire before I was 50. That's what happens when you choose an occupation that you love to do.

    I can't believe how many people are working. It's going to be the least productive day ever.

    In Europe most everyone works half day Fridays and they get a lot more holidays than we do.

    The weekend went by so fast I am going to play on the lake all day tomorrow
