    I worked the whole summer. Mainly because these two reasons:

    1) I work as IT support and some other responsibilities for a big government company. During the summer most people are gone and therefore less issues. I spend my summer mostly chilling on the balcony, drinking something and checking my phone.

    2) Swedish summer is bad. It lasts for like a few weeks. I take my 1 month long vacations during the winter, when it's cold, everyone's depressed and going to work sucks. That's when I hit one of the SEA countries like Thailand and enjoy hot and sunny weather.

    Solid on some levels, shit on others. Which makes it kinda standard, I suppose.

    What about those of us living in regions where there aren't any clear-cut winter, summer, spring, fall?

    How was your rain season?

    Pretty much shit

    Summer time is seasonal time. Worked nearly every week 7 days a week, the record was 23 days on the trott without a day off. 8 / 8 30am start, 7-8pm finish every day. The weather was shit so our trade was down significantly. Less trade = less staff. It didn't effect my hours but our set up is

    3 shops, 1 on the till in each shop
    1 in each shop keeping an eye / topping up etc.
    2 floating between the three shops doing what ever is needed.

    This year, we had:

    1 on each till,
    1 person in shop
    1 person running between the three.

    The person in the one shop was a new member of staff, 17 year old girl. To be fair she pulled her weight (Without being funny every single woman we've hired has been a colossus pain in the arse and a waste of space, sitting down all day texting and not contributing), but she's still technically a kid. She wanted a part time job a few hours a week. She was doing the same hours as me and it exhausted her a quater of the way into the summer to the point she made herself ill. So that left me pretty much doing everything.

    So, my summer was shit dealing with tourists and exhaustion. Oh my relationship also got finished and my bank pulled a Uturn and decided to suspend the perks of my graduate account sooner than they said they would. Which resulted in three of those weeks of work going straight to paying off a fine and the left over bit of my overdraft. In heindsight, its a laugh of cry sceanrio so I'll stick with it being funny

    Still a few months away, but winter her was pretty warm indeed.

    Where I live the seasons are:

    Nov-Mar : the floor is lava
    Apr-Aug : warm to hot
    Sept-Oct : these pretzels are making me thirsty.

    What Summer? We've had the coldest Summer in 49 years, the hottest day this summer was a wooping 28,2 celsius >< I've already ordered 2 vacations next summer to get out of this wet cold shithole.

    Thanks to the heatwave in the southern parts of Europe, we had an overcast 24/7 with constant rain here in Ireland...

    So summer SUCKED this year.
