You can't stop sorting mail just because its a holiday, it would just be delayed and backlogged. The large mail centre tend to run at or close to 24hrs a day.

Ok the thing was that I was thinking both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were federal holidays here and was thinking it rather odd that someone who worked in the post office would be working on a federal holiday. Then what you said, Orgaloth, got me to look things up. Seeing as Christmas Eve isn't itself a federal holiday that's less perplexing now. Thanks.

Orgaloth is right. I do still work for the US Postal Service. It's Christmas Day that is the holiday...however I work third shift, so Christmas Day for me is actually Christmas Eve night. Then I'm working again Christmas night itself, but I only get the holiday pay for Christmas Eve night. For my shift, Christmas night is just another day.

And actually, Org, it's DON'T piss me off or I'll go postal... Wink

And the actual pay works out to either double time plus a day of holiday pay, which equals triple time, or it's time and a half plus the day of holiday pay, which is double time and a half. Either way it's a nice chunk of change, and I can't wait to get it into my pocket...muahahahahaaaaa!!! Twisted Evil

So much ammo, so little time...

Its 11:15pm, I'm at work waiting for customers to come in. Roughly another two hours before I get to go home. I'm bored out of my skull.

Although there are a lot of pretty girls, but I'm married to a beautiful woman, so I can't think that.

Wonder if he wanted a pepperoni or supreme.

Yeah. I would've at least demanded breadsticks and sauce, plus a couple two-liters of pop...hehehe

Though you do have to wonder what was actually going on there. I mean you take folks hostage and your only demand is for a pizza. What, did he not have the money to order a pizza? Or was there more to it and the media either didn't get told or was asked to keep the real demands quite (now that would be a real miracle in this day and age, the media keeping quite on something like this).

I do know there are some homeless that try to get into jail to get out of hte cold and get a hot meal. could be that, but i doubt it if it was not stated in the article....

could be he just really wanted a pizza and people refused to deliver it!

Posted this over in my game, reposting it here as an explination as to why I may not be posting in the next few days.

Well I'm getting alerts concerning Sandy. Maybe vong is too, don't know on that front. Not in the area where the storm is supposed to make land fall but am in an area that's supposed to be potentially effected by the remnants. Looking at high wind and flood watches beginning tomorrow morning which could cause me to loose power. Hopefully nothing happens, but if something does I may not be on for a little while depending on how long it takes for the power company to restore power to my area. If I don't post here or in vong's game for a while, then I'm hopefully just without power and nothing worse has happened to me.
