It's just the way people come off about it. Like they come off furious and angry at their boss that they got scheduled on a holiday. I agree, it is unfortunate, but when you work certain jobs you need to anticipate that you may not be getting that day off. I believe they should have a different attitude about it ie "sadly I have to work on holiday... It would of been nice to have the day off"

I've worked every Thanksgiving since 2010 and the following Fridays, too (except I'm off this Friday as of right now). My family just plans around it, which is fine if you're lucky enough to do so. I do think places should be closed, however. What annoys me most is how this country puts Black Friday on such a high pedestal. Thanksgiving is being swept under the rug because people want to save some money on a fucking TV.

It also annoys me that I work for a shit company that won't give me overtime because I'd gladly be working every day this week, plus a long shift tomorrow. Money talks.

I agree that places should be closed/close early the day before and employees should get paid overtime if they don't.

My feelings about people whining about having to work are very strong because I was at the point once where I was unemployed for about two years. Applied EVERYWHERE, talked to managers, did follow ups... And got nothing. It was a very low point in my life. My bank account was near empty, couldn't afford new clothes and had to wear ones with holes in it. (I know there's people who have it worse), and then to see people I went to school with get jobs, quit them, get new jobs so easily and they also complain about them constantly (same people), and I'm sitting thinking I would be happy to take home a pay check even if I didn't enjoy my job, boss or co worker. At the end of the day I'm getting paid because I'm fortunte to of found a job when others are still looking. But i guess people are selfih and fail to look at the positive side of it (not saying everyone is like that)

Not being able to fall asleep when you have to wake up early. so sleepy but just keep thinking and can't pass out. So frustrating right now.

I got a nose piercing yesterday and my mom said she didn't think I would do something like that because she doesn't think I could handle it. I have a weirdly high pain tolerance, so I don't know why she had to say that...

People are weird about piercings. I ran into a girl from high school and she saw my piercing and she was like "I never thought you'd do that." like it was some super rebellious thing.

I'm not sure what it is, but when I watch TV at my parents house, everything looks word. The movements seem faster and the lighting looks... soap-ish. Not sure if they have a better TV and I'm just not adjusted, or they have a worse TV. Mine is a 50" LCD, I think. Theirs is a bit larger.

I enjoy it, have to turn it off for gaming though.

I wish there was a video game equivalent to steroids. Adderall maybe.

And I'm annoyed by the fact that any percentage of my self-worth is predicated on how good I am at video games. Jesus Christ I hate myself.
