this makes me suspicious

In an effort to lull state workers into a false sense of safety make up for the lack of cost of living increase, Crist is letting us take off the day after Xmas and the 2nd of January with pay this year. On the one hand, that's fucking awesome. A five day weekend is a great thing. On the other, I can't help waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I thought the exact same thing! And I'm not even a state worker.

Why are we so cynical?

Ms. Moon said...

Hmmm.
Because we think about things?

downtown guy said...

Dang thinking.

I think... I think it's too little too late. I think it's motherfucking bullshit. Where's your goddamn raise? I'm glad you get some days off, y'all deserve it, Happy Christmas, but to me it smacks of giving a hungry kid a sandwich and expecting him to be pissing himself with gratitude.

Well...it could be worse.

Yeah, when I heard this on the radio, I had the same reaction. I kept waiting for the "without pay" part, so you and I are on the same page. Living in the state capital will do that to a person.

May - we're on the same page.

Ben - Crist is suggesting that most state workers be sent home for two WEEKS without pay.

EDP - they made us this way.
