I just changed it.

 

I tell ya, the US Embassy / Consular Agency employees have more damned holidays, sick days, and vacation time, than any other government agency or office in the world, I do believe. Jesus. Every time I turn around, they are closed. We need to cut their damned pay by 30%!

Good job on the quick change, fella must have been half asleep.

Does anyone at the consulate actually get paid.

I am willing to guess John is the only one who doesn't and I heard a rumor that he was leaving and being replaced by someone they will actually pay for the work.

Is this true?

Originally, he was going to retire. They were going to close the office. He informed them he would work part time, voluntarily, so they could keep the office open. 

 

All other employees, as far as I know, are paid employees.

 

I would imagine that, if he retires (finally), they would close it. But, I am no authority on that matter.

We really need that office, I hope they don't close it.

Had he not volunteered at the time, they would have closed it back then.
