Furloughed Federal Employees

John and I lived in Falls Church, Virginia, for almost 40 years.

Former neighbor and dear friend Gina Caceci has a recent letter published in The Washington Post‘s letters to the editor–July 30, 2013, A12.

I loved it.

Here it is:

Here are two suggestions for “out of office” messages that furloughed federal employees can use in their emails or on voice mails:

1.  “I am currently out of the office on unpaid furlough.  Please contact Congress for assistance.  They are actually not working but still getting paid for it.”

2.  “I’m currently out of the office on furlough.  If you don’t understand what this means, please go to your bank, take out 20 percent of your last paycheck and burn it.”

Gina Caceci, Falls Church.

Somewhere I read that Congress is only slated to work NINE DAYS in September.  Good heavens!

 

Here’s a picture of my beautiful friend, Gina
