    Who else is rockin' work on Christmas??

    So who else is taking it for the team this year and working Christmas Eve/Christmas?

    I'm working the day shift the 24th-26th for dispatch. It's going to suck, but got to love that holiday pay.

    I will be working a detail christmas day. I will pretty much be getting paid to hold a radio and stuff my face at home.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    things to do with Autumns A** to keep her entertained...HMMMMM

    Actually, I cannot think of a better place to be Christmas day than LEF
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    I have to work Christmas Day from 1600-2400. I'll be in uniform sitting at my family's house doing nothing. It never fails, I'll get a call on Christmas to respond to some BS. I hate it when people can't get along for one dang day! It really wears on me when I have to get called away from my family dinner because some scrote has a problem. Then again, at least I'll get to work traffic and maybe put some doper in jail on Christams Day!!! That would be a perk I guess.

    And I'll be making the most of it since I don't know when I'll get another Christmas off.

    My department you get holiday pay whether you work or not, so no perk to working holidays. Just another day.

    I'm off, unless the phone rings... (Not on call, but always subject to call...)

    But, hey, at least some of you guys get to be home and "available" while you're working... I never lived within the jurisdiction to get away with something like that. Years ago, we managed to sneak folks home for half the day of Christmas, at least if they had kids, but someone whined and complained and ruined that.

    Same here. For the first time off in a while though, I'm off on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
