I guess I have to.
I have one call back appointment for Comcast who is an 89% probability, and another who is a 50%.
Wish me luck!

Just so long as I am home in time to let in the mob for an Empire game for an exile who hath returneth to the field and fold for the holiday.

The good thing and the bad thing about door to door sales is that I get to make out my own schedule.

Going near a STORE? Are you nuts?

When I dispatched tow trucks for AAA Black Friday was the worst day for…not accidents, flat tires or jumpstarts but(drum roll)…LOCKOUTS! We would have one truck in or near each mall for those and locksmith vans for lost keys. A big tip day for the drivers also.
So be careful, watch out for the nuts and get home safe.

Doing six hours of predictive policing.

Crime never sleeps and we don't either.

Worked today, working tomorrow. Next year I get Thanksgiving off!

No Thanksgiving here so it's just a regular day for us.

Extra duty at the mall keeping traffic flowing Thursday night/Friday morning. DUI patrol Friday night.

Just getting up now for work. Very busy week when you work for an airline. Extra brownie points for guessing airline, job and station based on my name! Storm and snow up here did not help but was better then forecasted. And de icing is fun with the new heated trucks (and OT).

Archaeology never sleeps!
Hah, couldn't keep a straight face on that one…

Actually, I'm going to France for 3 weeks, in exactly 13 days, so I have to catch up on all my backlog of report writing before I leave,,, :(

I covered for a guy Wednesday and he covered my Thursday. (Thanks Mike!) We're both working today…but Der Baas said to work from home, 'cause that's what he's doing!

I'm getting ready for the release of Goose Island's Bourbon County Brand Stoout and all the madness retail entails with sought after stuff.

No work but it's a Game Day! All the buddies are coming over for a game of The Rules With No Name, then a gladiator match using Arena Games, then some VSF with Valor, Steel, and Flesh. It's going to be a great day-- ah, here comes the first guy up the drive now! 8D=

Worked in the morning yesterday. I'm working all day today and tomorrow, and Sunday for that matter.

It's the start of the busy season at the ice rink so I'll be working.

Mr Elmo28 Nov 2014 12:53 p.m. PST

I'm out of vacation days for the year so I have to work.

Charlie 1228 Nov 2014 6:01 p.m. PST

Hospital computers don't take days off (Thanksgiving and the day after). So neither do I (also posted from work…)

I did, although it wasn't as bad as most other places. grin

I worked although all my US staff were off. Since I have folks who report to me in EMEA I felt I should be available for them. I did get got up on a number of reports so it wasn't too bad.
