  1. Holidays

    In years pass I’ve worked for a company that gave your birthday off as a paid holiday. Also in this melting pot country of ours a ‘Floating’ paid holiday fits those that want a day off for some a cultural day of their native country that they may celebrate.

    Presidents Day is tricky in your business since that could be a busy travel weekend for those sick of winter snow and want t three day weekend getaway.

    1. In general on the “holidays” issue…

      Cranky thought 10 was way too many, but seemed to settle on 8. That’s not far off :) My company gives us 8 scheduled holidays (oddly, not the Friday after Thanksgiving, even though the office is dead that day) and 2 floaters. I like floaters.

  2. The year 2022

    Don’t be to sure, I was born in the mid 50’s and by the time I was adult we were to have flying cars and robot maids. It’s 2012 and I’m still waiting for “The Jetsons” era….lol
