RE: Christmas Eve Question

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine"

As Tim mentioned, we get a half day off with a Presidential Directive.  But
not usually.  Typically they let us off 2 hours early.  This is the first
time I can remember that they gave us a half day.

Subject: Christmas Eve Question

Just out of curiosity, does anyone out there in histo-land still get
Christmas Eve off as a holiday?  We got it off up until 5 years ago when we
became a reference lab.  Now, all of our outside clients feel obliged to cut
their staff loose for Christmas Eve and hammer my lab with all of their work
with no feelings of guilt that I am working on a skeleton crew as well.  I
was lucky enough to put in an 11 hour day yesterday and have no idea when
I'll get out of here today.  I think that the Christmas spirit is something
that reference lab histotechs can only hear about because we have no time to
enjoy it ourselves.  Ahhh, Christmas venting feels so good.
