:'((

We got some training schedule for the OJT guys from one of my seniors. It had some schedule put up even for April 10 - which is today.

But we thought - it was probably a mistake - since April 10 being a Good Friday - US should probably not be working. And then, the schedule had been a copy-paste of what the three days prior to it had - which gave us more reason to think it was scheduled without checking for Good Friday on calender. 

And the team in India made our own plans of enjoying our Friday off! A colleague & myself were planning to catch a movie too!

And yesterday - on a late night call - my boss tells us that Friday is a working day - since the client is working! And he wondered how we could think Friday was on off inspite of getting that schedule! 

Can you imagine what it feels like to have your hopes, plans & fun dashed a day before things were going to happen?! If yes - thats what my situation is like, right now! How can we be held responsible for taking it granted that Good Friday being an international holiday - US would have it too? :(


Mummeeeeeee :'(( I am working on a day that should have been the start of my long weekend! :(
