Re: Christmas Eve Question


I am in an English NHS lab and we don't get Christmas eve off.
It's 4:30pm now;  all the other staff left shortly after lunch so I
am just "minding the ship&#untiltill 5:15.
The place is very quiet although I understand that our out-patient
clinics are likely to run until 6pm.
So I will get two days off and then we will be back on Friday for
work as usual.
