It’s December 28th. It’s one of the worst days of the year. It’s a tweener. Christmas is over, New Year is almost here, the big retail days are gone, and I swear, if I eat one more bite of turkey they’ll have to lock me up cause I’m killing something.
Most people have to go to work. Some may have three week off, but not that many. How much work will honestly get finished today? My guess is very little, so what’s the point? Companies lose money when employees are unproductive. Just let them go home.
Same thing with New Year’s eve. Do you really think it is a productive day? Of course not. More wasted expenses, unless you sell party goods and alcohol. Then, it’s like black Friday for you. This year it falls on Saturday. Big break for big business.
In my opinion, getting wasted on New Years eve is ridiculous. You wake up in the morning, and some of you don’t even know where you are or how you got there. Just not a good idea. You spend the rest of your holiday miserable, trying to recover from the night before. It also is the most popular day for calling in sick.
The real issue lies with the employer. Do you really want hung over employees waiting on customers? Not me. Customers are very hard to find, and if you have hung over employees, you’re asking for trouble.
