what is this "work" you speak of?

 

*edit, because people miss sarcasm... I'm NOT asking about your job.

Haha, yea, those are the two options pretty much.

 

Dude I might have to work xmas too... I'll prolly leave if that's the case.

 

Or be so rude to shithead customers because I'm working on xmas that I get fired :D

 

Sucks homie, at least you're getting money now so hopefully in the future you'll be in better standing and not have to work holidays.

 

If if it makes you feel better, I get standard pay on New Years.

i understand a lot of what corporate america does but companies who dont keep their employees happy (for instance - closing one fucking day of the year to let people spend time with their family) has always been something that is beyond me. i think america could go for a couple days a year where we dont have convenience at our fingertips and are forced to plan ahead for something like a gift or ingredients for a holiday meal.

I put in time off for the holidays a month ago from the 26th to the 2nd so I could see the other half of my family / kick it with some good friends I only see twice a year if I'm lucky. I told them I wasn't going to be in town. Sure enough, I roll into work yesterday and I'm scheduled 5 of the 6 I requested off. I'm not taking a 300 dollar travel loss to work my shit retail job for a 250 check......so I might be out of the job come the new year....and I could give a fuck.

Couldn't say it any better.

After reading ballbags comment, eh he's got a point.

 

America needs a fucking legit holiday, like how they do things at Carnival, so there can be no PC nonsense.

yeah, people in this country like to miss the point. all im saying is people should be able to have a day like christmas to spend time with loved ones whether you believe in the holiday or not..
