Crump: No One Works This Week

I tried to call you at work last Friday afternoon, the day beforethe long weekend. You weren’t there. Same deal Tuesday afternoon — yesterday — the day after a long weekend. Ditto last Wednesday morning — a little before noon — a moment in time when, in theory, everybody in America with a job should be on the job. All three times, your voice mail proclaimed that my message was important to you and you’d get back as soon as possible. I won’t wait up. The week before the Fourth of July and the week thereafter are two of several during the year — the week before Christmas, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, the week that deer season opens, for example — when nobody actually shows up at the office/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.

Question: How much time off have you had last week and this?
