When do you finish work for Xmas?

Well?

I was hoping to finish today but unfortunately couldn't get through all my work (see WOT for why) so will be back in tomorrow, possibly even Christmas Eve But then it's off until 2nd Jan

Re: When do you finish work for Xmas?

I finished on tuesday but as the property market has been slack for weeks I haven't done a full weeks work in months!

Last week there was so little on I basically had a week off!

It can't last forever though so I hope it picks up in March like they say. Either that or I need everyone to default on their mortgages as that will produce a bit of work for us!

I can sympathise with those of you doing long hours though. When I was at uni i worked for sainsburys (who are a bunch or scum sucking, money grabbing, pricks, or the company is at least) They had me working xmas eve until 10pm and new years until 10pm. What I think is if you really need to go into sainsbury's at 10pm on new years eve you are pretty sad so why they feel they need to open then and ruin their staff's day I don't know.

I also know people who work Boxing day because the company begs them to do it and offers loads of money. They are not even open but there is a sudden need to fill the shelves up. Basically they suck the fun out of Christmas. I was really bitter about it when I worked for them.

Amazingly I have found a company to work for who's priorty is building up a reputation and looking after their staff- not how much money they can make.

Re: When do you finish work for Xmas?

Finish today Friday at 5pm. With a bit of luck I'll finish early but I've already worked through most of my lunch and reports aren't finished.

Still, as I didn't get so much as a call from my gaffer let alone a bonus, and my pay rise is about two-thirds of inflation for the third year running, why am I so bovvered about work?

Been there, done that, until September 2007, even though it was for a bunch of [email protected]#$#@% administrative issues.

The good thing is, it does make you appreciate what you have more, better define your needs and objectives, and your skin gets (much) thicker.

Or maybe that was just part of getting older.
