    Hey, guess what?! We can have this argument again this December! Christmas
    and New Year's are on Saturdays and therefore also off-peak anyway. Then we
    can do it again *next* December when they'll be on Sundays...

    I plan to ask this question via email and keep the response on file. And
    then shove it down their throats when they renege.

    Well, you can't argue with them because they'll claim they gave you
    july 4th off which they did. Just happened to be that it was on a
    Sunday! While, it would have been good business practice to give us
    the Monday off as well, you can't argue with them based on the email
    above.
