  • Man asks for vacation time, gets free trip to Las Vegas


    A security guard who works the night shift in the United Kingdom just wanted some time off work, but got much more — including a trip to Las Vegas — due to an email that was forwarded unintentionally.

    According to Metro, the security guard at Arcadia, Greg Heaslip, simply emailed his boss for some time off before his shift ended on Thursday and then went home to sleep.

    But his boss accidentally forwarded the email to 3,500 employees, who then jumped in to back Heaslip’s request for some vacation.

    While he was sleeping, the hashtag #givegregtheholiday took off on social media.

    According to BBC News, Heaslip’s coworker Kimberly Jaina was the first to take the hashtag to Twitter. “#GIVEGREGTHEHOLIDAY #ARCADIA,” Jaina tweeted.

    And then the news of the hashtag started spreading through the office.

    “@BHS_UK mayhem in the office #givegregtheholiday,” Twitter user Nicolette Morgan (@nicomorgan90) tweeted.

    Companies started offering him free stuff — T-shirts, hair gel, a cat magazine subscription and even a trip to Las Vegas courtesy of TrekAmerica.

    That is so sweet. His co-workers must really appreciate him to encourage that.

      a cat magazine subscription
      May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
      Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
      And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
      may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.
