That is where I am right now. It sucks. Anyone else having to work on this UK Bank Holiday?

My daughter is working today and she was working on Saturday as well. My car mechanic was working today too thank goodness.

I gave up my job because they wanted to force everyone to work on Saturdays. It was the best decision I ever made. But then I was lucky enough to be able to survive until the pension comes in.

I saw it as a form of slavery. I know I was being paid, but they were taking away my right to choose when to work. I accepted Monday to Friday but weekends were sacred to me. They are a time for family and friends and are precious.

I completely agree, John_Little.

If I had been offered work this holiday weekend, I would have taken it, but I was not scheduled to work, neither Sunday nor Monday. I did go to the charity food source alone on Saturday because Ruby was working Saturday, and I went to give plasma today (Monday) while Ruby was at work. I also took home the nieces who had spent Saturday night and Sunday with us. And I mowed the rest of my estate.:D:P;)

To be fair, I did volunteer but only because I would get the day in lieu and therefore bump up my holiday allowance for the year - I only have 2 days left now until January!

However, it still sucks!

At least you get to go on a forum while at work - that's a big no no in most work places.

I won't tell, if you don't.

You do realise, of course, that w*rk is a four letter word and should be included in the swear filter. Please place you penny in the swear jar!nananana
