Not feeling guilty about a Monday lie-in

At the end of a phone call about some embargoed news that comes out on Monday I had to mention that it's a Bank Holiday. There was a pause as those on the line, both calling in from different exotic places overseas, struggled to understand just why the Brits wouldn't be working on Monday.

For one terrible moment I felt very lazy and found myself apologising for not being straight into work. But then I thought; hold on a minute, chum - I'm allowed a day off now and again and if the banks can't give us our money back or help resellers get loans the least they can do is provide an excuse for a day off.
