Is it really a special non-working holiday?

Not for those in sales. Our government declared October 31st as a special non-working holiday. A day for us to travel back to our hometown in time for tomorrow's All Saint's day celebration. But one of our dear Sales Agents was able to close a 2.9M sales today and he didn't allow the holiday to get in the way. I'm happy for him for doing the last hurrah for this month! Hardworking people really do earn what they deserve!

@infatuatedbby Nope. We have a special celebration we call the monthly general assembly. That's when we all treat all of our 300 agents out.

@toniganzon Good for you! Here in Italy, we are pratically at the "hungry". Are not enough two pensions, we never get to the end of the month. You must however calculate that we in the family are in 4. My brother and me, we're jobless! (And we cannot work, because we are ill)

@ebanreb I think you misunderstood what special non-working holiday means in the legal term. Today is a regular holiday it means the calendar is red. When we speak of special non-working holidays those are days declared by the government as a holiday when in fact it isn't. October 31st is a special non-working holiday. Check your calendar, it's not red. That's the meaning of the special non-working holiday in the legal parlance.

He is really hardworking. The way people are normally excited about holidays. They just want to stay home and relax while he ensured he didn't have one.

It's not like he worked all day. When closing a deal like that, you'll ignore the holiday!

@toniganzon Sure i also would ignore that day because a deal like that if lost will never come another like it.

In this industry that's not even considered that really big. It's just an average amount.

@toniganzon in the corporate world, it may be an average amount, but for us who work as health care providers, having that huge sum of money is so fulfilling and rewarding, salary-wise. a 2.9m sales is so good to be true, for a health worker to gain from his salary.
