May Day May Day

May 1, 2008

Today being May Day is a compulsory holiday for us over-worked,under paid labourers.

Which means its illegal for you to work today.If you are still in office ,its not too late.Run before the communists come knocking on your office.By the way May Day was celebrated much before in medieval Europe, as some sort of a holy day welcoming the first spring planting.Knew that? Neither did I . See how much you learn by just not going to office, its mind boggling.

Also May 1,1886 (or 1889) is when workers demanded the 8-8-8 rule. 8 hours of work ,8 hours of recreation and 8 hours of sleep. Clearly our comrades never ever stepped into the modern corporate office !

Or did they mean 8 hours of work per week? Aah, now that makes sense.But then there are people like my hard-working boss who manage to pull up the average.

Updated : Of course me being from JNU ,the last fortress of the communists ,just had to celebrate this day.Remind me someday to write a scathing posts on the the breed of communists wasting away in JNU.
