    It's a holiday. Why not work and get time and a half all day plus your 8 hour holiday pay?

    They used to do that here, I've heard, but that was probably before I was even born. Wouldn't mind a free turkey, ya know, UPS.

    Must be nice, although you are probably going nuts by now just waiting to come back. A lot has changed since you left. New guard shack, new cross walk, "old" car wash is no longer there, finished the retaining wall for feeders, and they upgraded security to TSA security to come in and out.

    Depends on where you work. Some buildings as of last year it's a regular work day.

    There won't be any volume, but it's a regular day.

    Triple time here and they can keep it. Only time I worked it was as a casual because I had to. Never again.
