    Are these people crazy? We do not get much time off and these people have the N*ts to call. Anyone else get calls on holidays? I should mention my company is run from my house. The co number is seperate and we are building an office downstairs. I still answer the darn phone so am I as crazy as the ones who call on the holidays?

    I am not yet a father so I don't mind it quite as much, but I still have a father and a grandfather that I like to spend time with today, so I do not consider loading up unless they are willing to pay more than normal. Holiday pay is much higher than any other day.
