Google Gives Employee Week Off at Daughter’s Request
A Google employee is getting a week off of work to enjoy his birthday, thanks to a letter his daughter wrote to his boss.
A little girl's summer wish came true, thanks to a letter she wrote to Google.
Katie wanted her dad, who works at Google, to spend more time with her, so she wrote the Mountain View company a letter asking for him to have Wednesday off.
"Can you please make sure when daddy goes to work, he gets one day off," she wrote in the letter, which is going viral on Twitter.
"P.S. It is daddy's birthday. P.P.S. It is summer, you know," she added.
The letter worked, according to "The Today Show," as Google responded with a letter thanking Katie for the note and giving her dad the first week of July off as vacation time.
