    I had to go to the bank today and they were packed. When I asked why they said they were closed yesterday. I didn't realize banks closed on Holidays. Who else had off?

    Sheesh you live in a cave?!? Banks are like government offices! They are ALWAYS closing for whatever reason they can get away with. I am always working.

    Yes I do. I really don't like talking about it. I worked yesterday. At what point do we decide a particular field gets the day off and the others have to work?

    I work for a private company (and one of our co-owners is retired Army), and we had to work. I'm not really complaining, though, because we get off from Christmas Eve until Jan 2 each year. Plus, they're really lenient about sick days/personal time off.

    My mom works for the state and she was off. I guess Federal and State businesses were the ones that were officially off yesterday.

    I'm unemployed so I had the day off.

    Mrs. HandsomeRyan is a federal employee (USDA) so she was of as well.

    I've never had Veterans' Day off, I've always been told that that was in exchange for Black Friday.

    I was off, I'm off every day. Thank you very much.

    Know what you mean Doc. Did you do Nam?

    Or did you say they sent you to Korea instead?
