Vaycay! Girl nets dad time off with a letter to Google
Here's a new tactic to get yourself some extra time off work - get your kid to write your boss a heartwarming plea.
When little Katie realised her dad's birthday was fell on a weekday, she grabbed a colour pencil and scribbled a note to his boss at Internet search giant Google.
For those who can't read the text in the photo, her letter read:
"Dear Google worker,
Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off. Like he can get a day off on Wednesday.
Because daddy ONLY gets a day off on Saturday.
PS It is daddy's BIRTHDAY!
PPS It is summer, you know."
Not only did the letter strike a chord with Katie's dad's boss Daniel Shiplacoff, he decided to give his employee more time to spend with his special little girl.
Once more for those who can't read the letter, the senior design manager with Google wrote:
Thank you for your thoughtful note and request.
Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people across the globe.
On the occasion of his Birthday, and recognizing the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time.
So if you see this guy in a California bar:
Remember to buy him a beer for making little Katie's wish come true.
