I am used to the idea of working on a bank holiday. The place I work at just lumps all the bank holidays into your normal annual holiday allowance1. If you want to take the bank holiday off, you need to book it off. The places my dad and my wife work are the same.
But the factory that I am doing the testing in is one of the ones that fully shuts down on bank holidays, and so was very quiet today. That didn't stop us from continuing our testing though. It was odd how quiet the whole place was, though we did manage to make good progress.
The other nice thing was that the roads were quiet. I doubt they will be so quiet tomorrow.
