Who has to work on the Holiday? including SOs

i understand the world doesnt stop on the holidays, but it sure would be nice to have my husband home for christmas eve, especially since its when we do our celebrations for the most part. dh is a material damage appraiser for insurance, and he has tomorrow off. i could not believe the amount of people that DEMANDED he come on christmas day. it just makes me mad that people have no consideration for things like this.

well, Merry Christmas to everyone! i hope its a good one, even if you have to work!

  • My fiancee chooses to work holidays so that he can make more money - he gets time and a half so now that we have our son, that helps out big time. He's only workin til mid afternoon tomorrow so it won't be SO bad.

  • My husband doesn't have to work on Christmas Eve/Christmas this year, but he has before. The way my husband's schedule is, he will work on Thanksgiving/Christmas Eve/Christmas for 4 years and then have 4 years of being off on those days.

  • My husband has to work today but he is supposed to get off early. We'll see. Honestly I'm okay with it. I am dreading what we have to do when he gets off work.
