Starting today on Thanksgiving, I get to enjoy a 5-day weekend courtesy of a vacation pick I selected way back in January of this year. I've done this every year at my job since I started at the Postal Service back in 2002 and it is always what I need. Because after the Thanksgiving holiday ends and Monday comes around (Tuesday for me, I have Mondays off), the Christmas season starts to get rolling and the mail volume increases as people send gifts and packages to their loved ones. That's when my fellow USPS employees and I kick it into overdrive and work overtime to get those parcels sorted, processed and delivered on schedule. But first things first, Thanksgiving.
I am going to enjoy this 5-day weekend especially this year, now that I'm a Rooster Teeth First member. Gonna play some video games, binge watch some exclusive First member content, and chillax. It's gon' be gud.
