"Honey I would go to work but they won't let me. I had beter go kill something for us to eat till I go back to worrk."
That was my complaint against the last furlough, it didn't come during hunting season.

So I got to stay and work with gauranteed pay, but no pay check until they pass a budget. A lot of other guys were sent home that day with out a gaurantee of a pay check. But as of yesterday they will still get a paycheck because congress passed a bill saying that they will back pay all federal employees. So they get a free vacation and I have to work. how does that work Those of us "essential personnel" were told no comp time will be authorized for the time we are here while others are off. On the bright side, if the ball went the other way and congress did not authorize back pay I would have still been paid due to being "essential". On a different note my Dad relies on the commissary for 75% of his pay check because he is a vendor. When the commissary closed down he pooped a brick. He was very excited to find out that all commissaries will open back up today at noon.
