Independence Day, July 4, falls on a Sunday this year. And because the 4th falls on a Sunday, people are having to take a furlough day today on top of getting paid for Monday due to the holiday. Which is Monday… the 5th of July.
What, is this some sick joke? Because I ain’t laughin’. No, seriously, it’s the same thing as if Christmas and New Year’s Days were to fall on a Sunday respectively. Public transportation would run funny the next day. Garbage pickup would be delayed by a day or two. So while you’re firing up your grill and setting off fireworks to celebrate our great country’s independence, know that you got an extra day to, um, whatever.
Happy 4th of July… or should I say 5th of July.
