Happy Mandatory Vacation, Day 1, to my government employee readers!
As my friend, you may have already gotten an earful on what I think about the shutdown. But as my reader, I come bearing resources.
So [try to] fret not.
Here are some things that may be helpful, including some steals and deals:
-Each agency's plan.
-Also, it seems that a lot of people haven't heard about DC Mayor Gray's declaration that he would consider all DC government employees essential in the case of a shutdown. Therefore, DC will not [likely] be shutting down.
-Furlough food freebies for government employees.
-Happy hour specials for the shutdown.
-Live updates on all shutdown specials.
-How to MacGyver DC (and save more money during the shutdown).
-For a small chuckle: Government Shutdown Pickup Lines on Twitter.
