I used to work with a guy, Jessie, who was a grumpy Cajun.

He would take the entire week of Ash Wednesday off--for religious reasons.

The company we worked for was based in Louisiana (though we were in Texas), and the company would take off Fat Tuesday. In fact, I believe it's a state (Louisiana) holiday.

Of course, he would take off Ash Wednesday as well.

Then he thought, why come in on Monday only to take the next two days off. So, he'd take off Monday.

Jessie didn't work on Friday at all, and so he figured, why come in one day for the entire week? So he took off Thursday, just to round things out.

I like that.

Mike
