Not sure what i would do if i didnt work. I dont think to many other people r gonna be able to take the day off. Plus i would just have to go back out on saturday. I think I will have the flag flying as I do everyday. I would love to take the day off to show my respect but I dont think it is gonna happen.

I have worked all the 9/11's since 2001. I was a senior in HS in 2001. The though that it is 9/11 does cross my mind quite a few times during the day though. Makes me remember exactly what was going on and what I was doing all that day. I'm not sure I would consider not working though.

Sounds like an excuse not to work. You must be a solo guy who does not have to much work.

I'll be working, 9/11 is not a Holiday, nor should it be treated as one. It is a day of rememberance and observation.

I will be working. I agree

I can just see it now. "Come down for our 9-11 20%% off our ALREADY low prices!!"

I just don't think so

Agreed. There is no reason NOT to work.
