I'll never forget the employee who came in to our office and wanted to take halloween off as a "religious observance". (true story, this guy had evil tatoos all over his body and always wore black) I'm thinking to myself, you have to be kidding? and, this is a first. The production manager was an ex-military guy. I thought I was going to see a repeat of that scene from Full Metal Jacket I think it was, where the drill instructor confronts the recruit with; "YOU DON'T LOVE THE BABY JESUS?!!!"
Needless to say the employee did not get out of work for halloween. You can celebrate tonight after work with everyone else, I think the manager said.
