  • Are you working today?

    It’s 29th February today…It’s just another day right?

    I just got off the phone to a supplier who said

    “If you call after three i’ll be in a meeting but there will be no-one else here. I’ve sent them all home early. As it’s a leap year they don’t get paid for today”

    Interesting point of view. You could argue the month is a day longer every four years so why should i spend that day at work?

    Very generous of the guy!

    But most of us get paid weekly, four weekly or monthly right?

    A week is still seven days, leap year or not and if you get paid monthly you don’t have the 31st off seven months of the year?

    No real point here but it made me smile!
