    Did you actually fill out a request form, or was it all verbal?

    I would enjoy the day with your family. Life is short not like our endless flow of cardboard.

    A wise man once told me its only cardboard and envelopes. Pick ups and deliveries. That's all it is everyday.

    Did you fill out the paperwork for an option day? Here, they need to give us an answer within 7 days. If they dont, contractually we get it off if they drop the ball.

    You should have put in a personal day off request form or call in sick tomorrow.

    Never seen or heard about forms where I work.

    If I needed the day I would take it. If it wasn't that important, I would go in.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with his experience!

    Take the day off and enjoy. You did your part, staffing is their problem.

    I was driving to work one day last week and it was snowing on top of blanford mountian. If I hadn't check the weather forecast I would have been worried I been wearing shorts since the beginning of March.

    I think its all done for the year or at least it better be when I get back the 17th.
