Just as I did last year, I'm using the Good Friday holiday at my job to get a four day weekend for four hours of vacation. Falls out like this. We normally work 9 hour days Monday through Thursday and four hours on Friday so I automatically get a half day every week, which is a pretty decent perk. But, since we only come in for four hours on Friday, in order to take an eight hour holiday we have to leave at midday on Thursday. So, I decided to put in for the other half day and just take all of Thursday off. Thus, by using four hours of vacation I end up being off four days in a row. Not bad at all.
