What I learned this week…

At the risk of being accused of not taking anything seriously, the thought that’s occurred to me more often than any other this week is wondering how, exactly, so damned many people have eight or nine days off, largely in the middle of the week, to be able to spend so many days in a row schlepping around the streets of America’s major cities. 

I wish I were even being facetious. I’m simply amazed that so many people have the amount of free time in the middle of the day that being this level of involved would require. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’ve got a nice pile of vacation time stacked up, but not so much I can fire off a week of it at a time due to unplanned circumstances.

Maybe what I learned is that I’m not getting as good a deal on leave as I thought I was. Best believe I’ll be making sure to educate myself further on this one.

One thought on “What I learned this week…

  1. One of my college friends seems to have a part time job protesting… but she works as a free lance yoga instructor and Vedic astrologer… so she doesn’t have to worry about vacation days. Suspect a lot of the protesters also have free lance jobs, or at the moment, no jobs…. I want to know why large gatherings of people are ok if they are protesting something the media endorses, but are putting the country at risk if they are protesting the shut downs, or are just relaxing at the beach.
