Kids definitely have no problem asking for what they want. And in this case, Katie’s dad works for Google and she had something to say to her dad’s employer:
Dear Google Worker,
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.
PS. It is daddy’s BIRTHDAY! PPS. It is summer, you know.
And this was Google’s response:
Thank you for your thoughtful note and request. Your father has been hard at work designing many beautiful and delightful things for Google and millions of people around 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!
This little girl has no problem speaking what’s on her mind. And in this case, it paid off.
