i mean a day off work, but there's fuck all to do on your day off, the only place open is the bloody co-op, no buses running, tv is shit as usual, and for people who are self-employed (building work etc) it's just a loss of wages, even though i'm not old enough to work yet, i still think it's bullshit, and that they should be optional.

well not enough holidays for brits as it is, UK has one of the lowest rates of holiday in Europe, i think Germany and Estonia have the highest, Germany is around 4-6weeks i think

Fuck, this thread is super gay...

Bank holidays rule - you get three days off in a row, so you can get proper wated all weekend, get the chance to have a lie in, there's usually a cople of films on the telly...

If you've got a normal salary job you still get paid for the bank holiday, and if you've got a job that's pad by the hour, you can choose to work it and make extra money.. When I worked in a shop we used to get like 150 quid for doing 10 till 5 in bank holidays...

Especially this bank holiday just gone - Carnival!

By the way Boudi I know horses need to be seen to every day (my girlfriend and her family keep horses) they don't give you any holidays, so I'm not including you in this... But the rest of you, sheez surely sitting at home doing nothing beats work!

my mum was quite involved in riding/look after horses when she was younger. my mum and dad are self employed, which is alright for mum as she only normally works mon-thu (gardiner) and could change that to a fri etc and it's just me and her she earns child credit and whatever the fuck it is, but my dad being the stupid fuck that he is working as a hodcarrier leaving school with no qualifications and under the situation there's no building work to go around, is fucked lol.

"working on my new dub track"

Is that a euphanism for something? :teeth:

Never heard it called that before...
