You aren't a politician, teacher, student, radio or television show host, investment banker, lawyer, government worker and you don't live in Europe. You had your one compulsory day off. Were you thinking that just cuz New Years Day landed on Thursday you had a four day weekend? Good Christ you are naive.
The holidays are over January 2nd. Throw out your Christmas tree stand and all. Phew! Dang holidays messing up commerce enough as it is. High tail it back to your job and get to it. So the rest of us lucky ducks can catch up on errands and vacationing.
