Quick post from work!

Was communicating with a coworker in Singapore and as he was getting ready to leave he sent the following email:

Taday is Eat Your Family day in Singapore and we all get to go home early.

While I was sitting there wondering what kind of barbaric customs they had in Singapore, he replied a few minutes later with Oops, I meant Eat With Your Family day. – at which I laughed out loud in the office.

For those who don’t know what he’s referring to, today is apparently a day that participating companies let workers go home earlier than usual so that they can spend a little more time with their family.  A practice I definitely think JAPAN should adopt!

    I like the sound of this holiday as well. Gives you an excuse to sneak out of work early =p

    On another cruel note, you could scare your kids and tell them they actually had an older sibling but he/she got too old…

    Tet’s post is too funny! 🙂 BTW, Josh graduated last night…wow, it’s an odd feeling not to have a kid in HS…now on to ??? Jess got a call before 4am today re his on-line course ( I just love the difference in time zones between here and the CONUS east coast, second time that’s happened!). He has lots of on-line reading so it’s tiring. Have a great day!

    just noticed that you edited your post…looks good, but “Taday”??? I’ve heard of ‘Ta da’, but “Taday” is a new one…Maybe I’m being too influenced by John Grisham’s “The Last Juror”…a good read. 🙂
