Friday was a public holiday so I had a three-day long weekend. Long weekends are always nice but I have to go back to work on Monday. I know a few people who decided to take a vacation day on Monday and made their weekends a four-day one instead. In all my years of working I don’t think I’ve done that. My memory is hazy now but even if I did, I don’t think I would have done it more than once. I prefer to use my vacation days for when I’m actually traveling somewhere.
Of course, when I wake up tomorrow morning and curse that I have to go to work I will then wonder why I didn’t take that extra day like so many of my co-workers did. Perhaps one day, in the near future, I will extend a long weekend myself. For now, I get to commute to work like a chump tomorrow.
