Why Poya on a Weekend sucks

January 10, 2009
  1. It’s not a weekday. So you just got cheesed off from a well earned holiday*.
  2. Planning to hit your fav waterhole for a drink. Guess what. They’re closed. Unless it’s Buba or some dingy joint.
  3. You put off soo much to be done on the weekend, only to realise that 90% of the shops are closed.
  4. You have to come to work, and your sick. Bleh

*One of the good things about living in Sri Lanka is.. Poya Holidays. Your ensured of 12-13 days a year to run away from the rat-race. Atleast for those who are doing regular/boring jobs.

    jerry u suck.. šŸ˜‰

    im not a fan of poya either. more holidays is not what this country needs. i’m a buddhist and i say this, becuase i want to see this country prosper even a little bit with a days work, to which we all can contribute. maybe they should make it optional half day or something…

    dee, if you maybe work instead of blog so much from office we can still be properous without the optional half day or something.

    It’s a SUNDAY! Sabbath? Seventh day? Day of rest? Lie around day?

    dee, i dont think the problem is the poya holiday, i think the problem is in the work ethic of the people. its hard enough to get anything done anywhere without being shuttled back and forth between a hundred counters before some lazy sod puts down their tea long enough to attend to your needs. if people became more efficient, we could have 4 days workdays and still be more prosperous.

    lol ‘I love Poya’, that was MY opinon, if you like a random holiday in the middle of a week with hectic audits, where you anyway have to come to work and finish it up, with NO OT or holiday pay, be my guest. šŸ™‚

    ahahaha, my dear ignorant girl. that’s the beauty of it. i DON’T have “hectic audits, where you anyway have to come to work and finish it up, with NO OT or holiday pay”, which is precisely why i love my poya. some of us CAN enjoy it at home doing nothing, me love.

    let’s hope you’ll have better luck next poya šŸ˜‰
