MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Little Katie had seen enough.
It was summer. It was her father’s birthday and he always seemed to be working.
So armed with a crayon, Katie decide it was time to take action.
In a crayon-written letter to Google Senior Design Manager Daniel Shiplacoff, little Katie asked that her father be given some time off.
“Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off,” she wrote Shiplacoff. “Like he can get a day off on Wednesday. Because daddy only gets a day off on Saturday.”
The letter touched Shiplacoff’s heart.
“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,” Shiplacoff wrote in a return letter.
