Yeah, great for you buddy, some of us have a life, none of us get paid extra for showing up on a long weekend.
That last part is what he is probably unaware of, and within your power to control.
As in, suggest to your company that these middle-of-a-holiday-weekend jobs are part of why it is so hard to find/keep competent people. Point out to them that bonus pay would go a long way towards mitigating that damage.
And suggest that in the future they tell that client that installations outside of normal business hours cost 50% more, and installations on holiday weekends cost double.

Maybe even point out that the bonus would not need to equal the increased fee.
