Son, sometimes things in life come down to simple decisions we make. I have one facing me right now. It’s not life or death by any means, but it is still a decision I need to make.
As you know, I don’t get paid when I don’t work. Yes, this is unlike many of the corporate jobs I have had where you get vacation and sick time. Every hour I work means more income for our family.
Here is the situation: Our offices are “technically” going to be closed until the first Monday in January. I was told I could come in and work if I wanted to. I would be by myself in the office and it will be pretty slow. I was even offered the opportunity to put in 5 more hours, allowing me to get up to 40 hours a week.
We’ve talked about many things over the last few months. What do you think I should do?
a.) Take a few extra days off and enjoy the holidays?
b.) Take the two weeks off and enjoy the holidays?
c.) Work every hour I can to make sure we stay above water?
