This is the end… my only friend, the end. – Jim Morrison
My company just announced that we will be forced to shut down for ten days, 6 over the Christams holiday, and 4 in February during Chinese New Year. And, in a tune all too familiar with the other Silicon Valleyites in my audience, these days will be unpaid.
I think it’s funny that I only get 10 days of vacation a year anyway; which means I would have to use them all on these shutdown days just to break even. Time to brush up that resume.
