Generally the amount of annual leave is poor in the US, but I had 20 days when I started my job (which is the same as I had in the UK when I started working) and the pay is so much better too (about 40% higher for comparable jobs).

Just realised that there is a game on thursday. I may have to juggle the meal times to watch it live, we are having friends over so I will have to be careful not to upset the wife.

 

2 good NFL games in the afternoon and evening as well.

 

Could be a pleasant afternoon and evening.

Exactly... I love Thanksgiving. Really is a great holiday. I even get half day on Wednesday so we can start the holiday early...

 

 

I'm starting early wednesday so I can finish at about 2pm. do the last bit of shopping (IE pick up the booze I want/need) and then get on the ale for the evening as the wife will be working.

 

 

Do they make you go in on a Friday PM, b*stards.

I know! have a word will you.....?
