Bad mood :o(
My bosses won't give in. They want me to work on New Year's Day, which means I'll miss the Vienna Concert, which I've been watching every year, only for the past 25 years, or since I can remember myself.
It's like a tradition for me, like my lucky charm to make it a Happy New Year.
I can time the video to tape it, but it won't be the same.
I always call home when the first notes of "The Blue Danube" are heard and we cry all together, my mother, sister and me.
If you have never watched it before, do it this year. It's around 11 am GMT, most European countries show it at the same time, I'm sure it will be shown in the USA as well some time, look for it!
It is always a live broadcast from the magical Golden Hall of the Musikverein in Vienna, with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by a famous music conductor.
It's a spectacular show, if you have the chance, don't miss it. 'Cause I will...
So back to my miserable New Year's Day. I'll be working from 11:30am to 6pm.
When the concert will be starting, I'll be on the bloody bus to work... Aaaaarggggghhhhhh!!!!
I had asked for the day off a month ago, but they didn't respect my plea.
And today I was explaining that I have plans, that it will be difficult for me to come to work, due to train delays et.c and their reply was:
"Sorry, it's Sale time and we need you..."
Well, I know it's going to be completely dead, no one will come to the store, and they know it too, so I don't know what's got into them.
I've never asked anything like that before. I'm always the last to chose my holiday dates and I would say I'm a workoholic. I'm the first to arrive and the last to go most of the times. And I never complain.
But this time I'm going to nag nag nag them until they give me the day off!
Next year I'll book the day two months in advance...
Because I have BIG plans: if I'm lucky (it's by ballot) I might be in Vienna, in that Concert Hall!!!
