Boxing Day

No one likes to go back to work the day after Christmas. The Dutch avoid that problem by taking a second day off (it’s called Second Christmas Day) and even those pesky Canadians have Boxing Day. Since I have a new job, I don’t have any vacation time and have to work today. Plus I’m the new guy, so I don’t think I should be taking any time off just yet anyway.

I was having a rough go of it this morning, but was still doing my best to make it to work on time. Luckily, I made up some time on the road because there was no one on the freeways. As I rushed into the office, I was only about 10 minutes late. I was greeted by a ghost town. Of the 25 or so folks that work in my department only two were here – the other two new guys. Apparently, I needn’t have rushed.
