A Hoped For Holiday
Posted by d@rk_@ngel_kn!ght
An eruption of cheers reverberated in our 2nd floor office when I said that August 20, 2010 has just been approved as of 4:30 this afternoon as a Special (Non-Working) Day.
One of my classmates who works at the City Hall texted me that the declaration has just been signed this afternoon and that she’ll be faxing a copy to our office. Bless her sweet heart! ^__^
What would have been a really long weekend (a 4 day weekend) as dreamt by us with compressed workweek schedules was marred by the countering of the initially declared Holiday on Monday (August 23) Ninoy Aquino Day and reverting it back to its original date August 21 – a Saturday. Then our hopes pummeled down as our local city government initially released that the request in declaring August 20 as a holiday was not approved. *SIGH* Farewell, oh hopes and dreams for a joyous long weekend.
Then a ray of hope! An unexpected communication from an unlikely friend. YES!!! 3 day weekend!
For those interested, here’s the faxed copy I have.
Argh!!! I forgot!!! My boss will still be here by that time!!! Noooooooooooo!!!
