1. This is a special calendar for handling rush jobs. All
rush jobs are needed yesterday. With this calendar, a job
or project can be ordered on the 7th and delivered on the
3rd.

2. Many companies set Friday deadlines, so there are three
Fridays in every week. This is also beneficial for those
persons who are paid on Fridays.

3. There are eight new days added to each month, to allow
for month-end panic jobs.

4. There is no 1st of the month, thus avoiding late delivery
of the previous month's last-minute panic jobs.

5. Monday morning hangovers are abolished, along with non-
productive Saturdays and Sundays.

6. A new day - Negotiation Day - has been introduced keeping
the other days free for uninterrupted panic.
