Easy come easy go.

When the market was hot here in Calgary they had to do something to retain staff. Now that things aren't so hopping in the oil patch they figure they don't need the extra perk.

Still, an extra day off now and then really was nice.

Humbug.

Bummer.

2011 - This  year is about the journey to December 31, 2011, not how soon the number on the scale satisfies me.

Couldn't you make the argument that it is better for the environment? Less cars on the road, less computers on. Less energy used in the building?

They're extra days off. One company here in the oil patch basically gave everyone every other Friday off. That's excessive, but we had an extra week of personal days to take.

Woohoo.
