The 16th was a Thursday. The “Friday before a 3 day weekend” is amusing. Are we to understand that for government workers a 3 day weekend is actually a 4 day weekend?
Lol, any government office has a skeleton crew on Friday, and after 12 noon, all have departed. That’s any Friday of the year, no holiday weekend needed.
I was going to respond, but then I realized it’s Friday afternoon…
Lol. I’ve worked for both state and federal government employers around the country. Just passing along what I experienced.
It’s pretty true in private sector too though.
