Xmas eve knock-off?

By Fiona - 24 December 2008 64

As most of my workmates have deserted me to head “home” to Sydney/Melbourne/Perth etc for the holidays this week, I’m looking forward to the hour this afternoon when managment says “right that’s it, out you all go” and chases us out of the building. There’s a rumour going around it’s 3pm, but I’ve heard that some others in our department get 2pm…

What’s the customary knock off time on Chrissy eve in your workplace?

(oh and what to do then? I see a couple of xmas eve events in the sidebar – the bells of the Carillion and Seasonal Beats…)

What’s Your opinion?

That’s why I’m here! 🙂

Team leader just walked in and said “none of you REALLY want to eb here til 3 do you?”

It’s looking like 1.

And someone just got a hamper from a supplier! It has wine in it! (I’m int eh wrong job)

Wife gets to go at 3pm (IP Australia).

I’ve got a f**king brief to do. Can you believe that!

Kakked myself at that Thumper! On Xmas bloody eve? What can possibly be that important? Have to say I love that about where I am now – no briefs, no ministerials.

Do have work to do, but everyone I need to do it with has scarpered, so that makes it bit hard. Assignment time methinks…

Start the rumour early and you have a much better chance of getting an early knock off. Say to people you heard it was going to be lunchtime and let the rumour go from there.

That sounds like an excellent idea!

You and me both, thumper (*groan*)

We usualy get the word from high up around 10 that we can leave around 12/1230, but my other team member is not here and I rang up my boss (Located in Sydney) and he said i can P.O whenever I want.

How dead was the rex carpark this week… I took advantage of that and rocked up at 0800 and still had a choice of the whole lot.

12.30 here! The system admins very kindly shut down our main OS at 11.30, then it’s a very laid back hour til we can all head off. Can’t wait!

It was ghost town in civic walking in this morning! We’re going at 1pm, here in the private sector.

Skidbladnir 8:57 am 24 Dec 08

All staff here go home at 1230.
If anyone is still in the building at 1300, I suspect Management will put on black santa hats and start marching the coridoors swinging crowbars just to make sure the CA is enforced.

Kramer 8:55 am 24 Dec 08

I knocked off work yesterday – it will be a ghosttown in the office today.

Thumper 8:52 am 24 Dec 08

12.30 here where I work, so if you are planning to go into civic today, do it this morning before the PS rush at middas.
