Oh the FRUSTRATION OF IT ALL

I previously posted that my husband has a great job and that I am secretly jealous of him. We are both lawyers, but his job is WAY more fun than mine. Also, he gets WAY more days off than me. He knows this irks me and so he doesn't ever rub it in or talk about it really. Which is fine, nice even. But here's the thing. He knows I get annoyed when he has stupid days off, like the aforementioned ELECTION DAY. I mean, who gets election day off?!? So he waits to tell me until the last possible second...which is normally the night before his day off.

Behold our conversation this morning as we get ready for work:

me: Why are you wearing Khakis and a buttondown? (he normally has to wear a conservative suit with a white shirt and tie.)

him: I felt like going casual today.

me: Why are wearing Khakis and a buttondown? (repeated in exactly the same manner so that he understands I do not buy this for even a second)

him: Well...

me: Do you have today off?

him: I am going to work today but...(trailing off)

me: But what?

him: It's Veteran's Day.

me: And you were going to tell me this when?

him: The office is closed...But I'm going in, so it isn't really a day off.

me: HOW MANY DAYS OFF THIS WEEK CAN THEY GIVE YOU!!!!

him: This is why I don't like to tell you...

The kid has a point, but can you believe it? TWO DAYS OFF THIS WEEK!

While I didn't get election day off, I did get today off. Sorry ... enjoy your day at work! :)

I've never heard of anyone getting Election Day off - that is a stretch seeing that it takes all of 5 minutes to vote. Perhaps they're encouraging employees to be poll place volunteers.

Mark is the same way you are -- can't comprehend all the days I get off. He's an orthodontist, so he HAS to be at work everyday or all the patients have to be rescheduled and all the assistants get sent home.

Granted he only works 3 days a week, which I think makes him spoiled. But I'm always getting flack about my two weeks paid vacation and one week paid sick time each year. Not to mention, I work for a financial institution so we get all federal holidays off. He believes that my schedule averages out to me working exactly 2.5 days a year.

Whatever. I'd take his job to mine ANY day. :)

But since I don't know your husband, I will take your side and be outraged at his exessive time off. Of course, it was pretty sweet that he was trying to soften the blow by going in to work. What a nice guy.
