View Full Version : Knocking off work today 23rd Dec
23rd Dec 2005, 11:48
Just found out that they want me in the office until 1730 :(
Anyone getting an early shoot or are all employers Scrooges?
No decorations or good wishes here. Maybe it is time to move on to bigger and better things :E
So who else is in the same boat and expected to work right up to the final hour?
23rd Dec 2005, 11:54
Nope. Knocked off at 12:00 and...look at that...that was 12 hours ago now!:ok:
23rd Dec 2005, 11:54
Which final hour?
I'll be working tomorrow as well.

Sittin on my sofa, waiting for my brother to come round so that we can go down the pub for a beer.
Finished at midday....
23rd Dec 2005, 12:00
Finished today at 11am but spent most of yesterday afternoon in the pub so not much done since midday yesterday.
23rd Dec 2005, 12:00
Finished at midday too
I'm not going to the pub, though. One has copious amounts of amber nectar all around the house!:=
23rd Dec 2005, 12:02
I've done what I need to do and am now going to tidy my office so it's nice and organised ready for the New Year. How long it stays like that is another matter!!
Probably leave about 3.00 ish?
23rd Dec 2005, 12:05
Have finished 4 minutes ago - no more in the offcie until Weds! :ok:
Only downside is I'm on call until then as well - everything is just bound to break....:(
Have a good one evryone:}

Good lord, thank you for the reminder. I'd better go and see that the minions are still hard at it. Can't have them slacking can we.
23rd Dec 2005, 12:12
No such luck, flying tommorrow..but then 25th, 26th, 27th off..woohooo, the beer is already chilling..:E
23rd Dec 2005, 13:01
I could finish when I want I suppose as hardly anyone is around, and those that are couldn't give a......
However I need to spend an hour writing a report before I do, and I think I have writers block (or lack of inclination).
Bored, bored, bored.......

Went shopping this morning, bought some smellie for Mrs G-CPTN from a doll dressed in a red Santa smock and wearing a red hat lined with fur. No white beard though (well not visible). Asked her what time she'd be round mine on Saturday night and the darling said "Would one minute past midnight be alright?".
Really made my Christmas. Can't wait . . . .:E :ok:
23rd Dec 2005, 13:25
I'm obviously the wrong sort of boss! All the staff have deserted me and left me manning the office until about 1600 - only 35 mins to go!!!
Big Aahhhh for RT :D
Happy Xmas all!!!!
23rd Dec 2005, 13:52
I'm here until 1930hrs. Same again tomorrow (Christmas Eve) and then a 12hr night shift on Christmas night. Luxury!!
All the very best to you all.:ok:

To all out there working over Christmas, take care :ok:

Bad luck. Operation G.C. about to kick off fine style on the South Bank down here.
23rd Dec 2005, 15:04
Leaving in an hour to start 4 x 12 hour night shifts. What a delight !
Merry Christmas to all ! :( ;)
23rd Dec 2005, 15:15
At least the airport is closed on Christmas Day:D
Merry Christmas to everyone!

Having started at 0730 this morning, was supposed to have finished at 1900 tonight. Just been told I now have two more sectors to carry out (taking the boss home after his social event this evening) so won't finish until 2200 earliest, then a weary drive home.
Another 14 hour day! Good job we got lunch today........ :rolleyes:

Was supposed to head off to deepest Africa today, the Boss called during the night, said trip CANCELLED!! WooHoo!!
Merry Christmas to All. Or insert your favorite politically correct greeting here __________________.

Mum will cut herself a slice of finger making dinner
Gran will trip over the dog and skin her shin
Dad will try out his brand new radial arm saw and remove a couple of digits.
Little Pietie will drive his new bike into a fence and split his lip.
His sister Susie will fall out of a tree and cut her head.
Big sissie Elmien's horse will refuse a jump and she'll sustain facial fractures.
Uncle Stefan will try to encourage the braai with petrol.
The gardener will get shot, and the maid raped (not usually my affair, thank goodness!)
Just another Xmas on call for The Practice
