You Know You Need a Vacation When…

Yesterday, I called the trading desk to sell a muni-bond and this is how the end of the conversation went:

Jen: “Okay, so you’ll sell the bond on Friday and it will settle on Monday, right?”

Bond Guy: “It will settle next day, which is Tuesday, due to the holiday.”

Jen: “What holiday?”

Bond Guy: (Pause.) “Uh, Christmas.”

Jen: “(Expletive.) Omigod! I can’t believe I forgot!”

This is what happens when your firm works you to the bone.

  1. Works you to the bone! Didn’t you get to leave early the night before Thanksgiving and had that Friday off! I had to work Friday and Saturday of that week. . .

    And didn’t you get a snow day??? When I had to drive to work in the dangerous conditions of Olive and Manchester. . .

    Works you to the bone my ass!

    Ha ha, can you tell I’m a bit jealous!
