    I got fired. Well, beginning of October, that is. Not because of my performance, but because I told the company's owner that I was not going to do something of questionable ethics, so they canned me.

    Been on the hunt since...

    Good luck friend! Good on you for standing up for the right thing, even at your own peril. Very admirable.

    I get both Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve off this year as the office will be closed.

    I have to "make up" the 16 hours by adding one hour per day to the 11 to 14 I am already working . . . . .

    I can not complain! I’ve been fairly lucky in my working career. When I started working it used to be a ham then moved up to a turkey! Now after all these years (25) in my industry I usually get some sort of monetary bonus plus we’re off between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day and it’s paid each year! I am a fortunate and lucky individual!

    It makes all of us feel so special around the holidays.

    I'm just trying to beat new restrictions starting at the 1st of the year. My 1 gun per week plan is somewhat on schedule. Might be serving rice and beans for the family Christmas dinner.

    We used to get holiday bonuses every year. On Christmas eve we closed the machine shop at noon, got out the poker table and whiskey and the boss would then hand out the bonus to each of us.
    Those days are long gone, CEO's make millions of dollars and don't give one penny to the folks who put them where they are today.
