Degrees of Oddity

Holiday Cheer

December 23rd, 2015

I must say, I’ve settled in rather nicely at the hotel. I’m off today and tomorrow and work a four hour morning shift in Christmas Day. Next week I work all night shifts, three audits and then a secondary overnight for the auditor on new year’s eve. Which means, for the second year in a row, no parties or drinking for me.

It sucks, like a lot. But what are you gonna do? I could totally be a dick and call out, but the rule of thumb is that everyone at the front desk works New year’s event and just because I got a short stick doesn’t mean much.

Maybe one day I can enjoy ringing in the new year while not at work , but this is not the year. Still, hoping that 2016 is brighter by far than 2015 turned out to be.

After all, it will be a whole new year!

    It’s called “paying your dues.” We’ve all had points in our lives where we had to work the holidays. This is especially true when it’s a job like yours. Move up the chain high enough and you’ll find you get the holidays off.

    Working for the telephone company it was years before I got part of the holidays off and all of them off when I retired. As your daddy said it is paying you dues!
