    I do not miss working for the civil service at Christmas time, especially how people with kids would go on about that they were entitled to Christmas leave more than people without children. Fuck that noise.

    Booked the day off, but folks in my office are there until 4.30.

    We don't shut down at all for Christmas, just the bank holidays, but I'm not back until the 3rd. Not going to use the leave for anything else.

    Yip, in cleaning a now empty office until 7pm. Can't go home early as you clock in/out from one phone and they check the number matches.

    I work in a toy shop so yeah, I'm working today. We're open til half past four but I've been promised an early finish as I have to get the train to my parents'. There are always quite a lot of people who are doing what appears to be the majority of their Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve.

    I have a child and that's outrageous. Entitled douches.

    It really is just me in the office today, or at least on this floor of it (and it's not a small building). There were a couple of people around earlier - one of our analysts and a finance person in a corner way down the far end. But they've gone now.

    Probably for me to make the call about what time I can reasonably head home.

    Also, must remember to put some clothes back on before I leave the office.

    We normally get an email telling us all to just fuck off.

    It's starting to feel like I missed the email telling us all to just fuck off.

    Still sat here with 6 people.

    Had a pot noodle for lunch.

    It really is a magical time of year.

    I bugged out 20 mins ago. When the cleaning staff started cleaning my desk while I was sat at it and when the heating got switched off, I took the hint that building services wanted us to fuck off.

    Nope. My office closed up shop at 4pm on Friday and doesn't re-open until 2nd Jan. I had to do a little working from home first thing, no more than 30 mins though and was done with it. Will have to do the same for two more days, but that's it. Woohoo.
