Girl melts heart of Google bosses

An American girl gave her dad the best birthday present he could have wished for when she got him a week off work.

His bosses at Google were so touched by a letter the girl, known as Katie, wrote to them, they handed her dad the time off to celebrate his birthday.

"Dear Google worker," she wrote. "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."

Katie adds, "P.S. It's daddy's BIRTHDAY. P.P.S. It is summer you know."

The company agreed to that day and added another few days off for good measure.

"Thank you for your thoughtful note and request," wrote Daniel Shiplacoff.

"On the occasion of his Birthday, and recognising the importance of taking some Wednesdays off during the summer, we are giving him the whole first week of July as vacation time."

It's not yet known whether Katie plans to write Google another letter at Christmas.
