Shutdown

You know this Government shutdown is serious when you try to lodge a complain on the National Do Not Call web site and get a notice that it's not available due to the shutdown.

I knew it was serious as soon as I showed up to work this morning!

Yes Sir! Sitting at home right now. Working on the Sabre brakes trying to figure out why the brake controller keeps throwing a code.

I'm one of the lucky few on my project that gets to keep working (for now, at least).

I guess I was lucky as a Federal Employee, but FAA inspectors have always been declared as "essential" as are Air Traffic Controllers during Government shutdowns.

I was sent home during a brief shutdown sometime in the 1980's for about 4 hours, was called back the next morning and got paid for the 4 hours.

I realize some are not so fortunate and feel sorry for being victims of this senseless act on part of the people who are suppose to be working for us.

All these people in control of the shutdown must have been the kids that their mommies took care of their problems at the sand box instead of learning how to take care of it themselves.

Worthless.

Not all Politicians are Statesmen.
Just not all like Managers are Leaders.

Shame everyone else has to pay when some people can't stop having a @#$ing contest. Feels like both parties are just generating sound bites for the next election.

Exactly... We had some folks go home because of it. If this were the private sector, they'd all be fired. Accountability??
