    The only reason I knew it was good friday yesterday is that just about everything was closed, and are usually closed for three days in a row. Also the proliferation of giant chocolate bunnies all over the grocery stores, large hunks of ham and big chickens.

    Couldn't figure out on thursday why there were an unusually large amount of frantic people in the grocery store, buying flowers. Then I realized the following day everything would be closed.

    Try to learn to do it yourself as it's a big shock if you had to do it for any period of time

    Interestingly, when I was doing govt office work, they traded off public hols except xmas, new years and one other for 2 weeks extra rec leave, which is a great idea. I'd love to see that go worldwide, just 3 or 4 public hols and employees given extra rec leave in lieu of lost hols.

    I was on a call with customer service, and when the woman suddenly said, "Happy Easter!" I was all like "wha - Oh, yeah, S-same to -you too" She messed up my pre-programmed response by throwing that Happy Easter out there, lol.

    It's not Easter here, because it's a Christian Orthodox country where I live, but since I'm not religious it's only real significance for me is that I get some time off work, which is most welcome.

    I don't look at clocks or calendars. If I could, I would eliminate them from my home entirely. As a mom I have to use them, but I wish I could just rise with the sun, and just count the days of the week.

    You could if you said you were solely Jewish ,as it would be discriminating against you, if you were denied something ,the Jewish lunar calendar is rest to rest or Shabbat to Shabbat not live to work .

    I often look at the calendar and at the time because I always forget what date it is today... I was in the same situation, so every morning in the work chat I ask if I work today or today is a day off. (I hate work chats by the way ... constant conversations about nothing)

    I've been unemployed for years now. The calendar is meaningless to me unless I have a medical appointment coming up.

    I've tried to explain this aspect of my personality to my coworkers, and the ones who I suspect of ASD understand it, even if they have mastered the issue, and the clearly NTs don't. I have two jobs, a podcast, and teen children, and I'm always forgetting things or being surprised by how soon an event arrived. Especially birthdays, I'm so bad with birthdays, and it makes me feel like a failure at humaning. I even have alerts on my phone for certain things, but I forget to set up alerts a lot of times. Or I dismiss them and then dismiss them in my mind as well. Flying by the seat of my pants here, and not comfortable with that at all.
