From time to time, Katie would go to school with a signed note from her parents. So it only made sense that Katie, seeing a problem with her dad's summer work schedule, would simply pack a note to go to work with him. So she packed him a note addressed to his employer, Google.
“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.
P.S. It is daddy’s birthday!
P.P.S. It is summer, you know.”
To everyone's surprise, Google actually wrote back.
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.
