I've been 'temping' at a joyless,souless lawfirm for over a year now. (is that a 'temp'?)

One of the bad things about being a temp is holidays. You see, I don't get paid anything for taking the day of, so "Enjoy your holiday weekend Zebra!" actually means "Enjoy your 20% paycut for next week!"

then the other day it hit me

ES: I suppose you want the whole day tomorrow?
BC: Well it is Christmas day sir.
ES: A fine excuse for picking a man's pocket every 25th of December. If I were to stop half a
crown for it you'd think yourself ill used.
BC: Ummm errr...
ES: Be in all the earlier the next day.

So ES or Ebeneezer Scrooge give Bob Cratchit a day off WITH PAY for Christmas. Ebeneezer Scrooge was nicer to Bob Cratchit than my boss is to me.

Merry Christmas!
