Today I found out that for the next four weeks, I will only have to work 4 days each week. Awesome.
For the next three weeks, the plant will go through its annual shutdown, which closes the plant for maintenance, any remodeling [two new offices] and so the employees who often work up to 60 hours a week can have a nice paid vacation. For us office staff, we still have to work, but it will be 4 10-hour days rather than 5 8.5-hour days. This means I'll be paid for my lunches for three weeks! Awesome!
The week after that, we have the Monday off for the Civic holiday. That means 2 three-day weekends and then a four-day weekend, without missing out on any pay! Awesome!
Also, tomorrow there is a big FREE steak BBQ in celebration of the shutdown, and every Thursday during the shutdown, there will be free lunch. That's 4 free lunches! Woo! HAHA
I can't wait to enjoy my special days off. AND I will save like 40 bucks by not driving to work those days! Yay!
