    Not sure what announcement you are referring to as it is not mentioned in this thread. Many may not know what they consider county government functions are in fact closed today.

    I am gonna be pissed if I don't get mail when Clinton or Obama die.


    Yes, it is customary. GW Bush declared 2 days of mourning : 1 each for the passing of POTUS Reagan & Ford. Clinton declared 1 for Nixon and Nixon declared 1 for Truman.

    (I googled that because I only rememberd 3 of the deaths, and was pretty sure this was a customary thing to do)

    I know I'm a day late, but most websites give the hour and open/close status of any establishment. I think even my WAZE shows whether a place is open or closed.
    Chaos breathes life into routine.

    No one leaves it like that anymore.
    Didn't you get the new user manual? ZERO means go back to the main menu. In fact any key not mentioned in the menu takes you to the main menu. No matter how hard you shout "OPERATOR" or "AGENT", it's just going to play the main menu until it cuts off your call.
