One Google employee has his daughter to thank for scoring him a week’s worth of summer vacation.
A letter sent from the little girl to the Internet giant asked that they provide her father with a day off to celebrate his birthday.
“Dear google worker,” read the letter, which was widely circulated on the Internet Thursday. “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!” the letter added.
The company not only obliged, but sweetened the deal.
“Thank you for your thoughtful note and request,” Google responded. “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. Enjoy!”
A Google spokesperson confirmed to TheBlaze Thursday that the letter was authentic.
