So, the story that's gone viral is that a little girl named Katie somehow not only wrote but managed to ensure that her father's employer got the following letter:
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.PS. IT is summer, you know.
The employer's response?
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 recognising the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time.
And because a good deed deserves praise, or because so many people want it to act as an example worth emulating for their employers, the letters have gone viral, ensuring great PR for Google as a result. Clearly a good deed didn't go unrewarded at least in this case.
Do tell us whether you think your employer would react as generously.
