He turned around with a puzzled look on his face and said "All week? Even Friday?"
I replied, still trying to hold back my choking coughs,"Yep, though I only work a half day that day. It's next week that I have a couple days off."
"Really?", said he. "What groups do you have that would even be open for anything that day? Or do you just have a lot of work that day?"
I was somewhat puzzled by this time, it's not like we were the only business open on Christmas eve. "No, I have absolutely nothing to occupy my time. But the office is open until 1:00 that day so I'm here."
"Really? On Friday?"
And then it dawned on me, Friday is Christmas not Christmas Eve. facepalm!
"Umm wait, Friday is Christmas huh? Hello! I meant Thursday." > insert nervous laughter <
"Oh, well that's good." he said.
Then I ran away and cried. Not really but my confidence is deflated by like a bagillion percent.
