Where I work, we get our birthday off as a paid holiday, but only the actual day unless it falls on a weekend in which case we take Friday off. This has bugged me for years. How come employers and the government can move Lincoln’s and Washington’s Birthday around to make 3-day weekends, but my employer won’t let me move my own birthday to do the same thing?
You get no special treatment because you have (a) Never been elected president; (b) Never fathered a country and/or (c) Never held the country together during civil war.
So you get a paid day off on your birthday? Shut up and stop whining. Most of us only get our birthdays off if we call in sick. Not that I would ever do such a thing, of course.
