okay so today i was supposed to pickup my paycheck, go home and blow all my money on god knows what cuz i sure as hell won't remember tomorrow. but i can't. why? cuz the my boss didn't get our paychecks today because the office he picks them up from is closed. i couldn't cash it anyway cuz all the banks are closed too. plus we were severely stressed today cuz we didn't get our delivery of food today because.....you guessed it the produce delivery company we order thruough is closed. why all of this? because of 4th of July.

but 4th of July was yesterday! today is Monday the 5th. what does this all have to do with anything?

well i remembered the alot of businesses/basically all of cooperate america close on mondays/fridays even if a holiday (Memorial day, 4th of July etc.) lands on the weekend because "In Observance of _______Holiday, we will be closed on Monday/Friday"

does anyone else think that's a bunch of bullshit? i mean are these people really that lazy? do they want their 3 day weekend THAT BAD? i think it's rather annoying but i've ranted enough already.

so how does everyone else feel about this? discuss

hell yeah, man! I mean, it might be annoying that so many things are closed and so many different companies not operating, but those people need that break.
I mean, consider if you were a mailman, and the world depended upon you for mail... 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. WOuldn't you want that extra day of vacation from driving around in a (thankfully) white car dumping shit in peoples' mailboxes, not being allowed to listen to music?

if the holiday landed on a weekday then by all means, take the extra day off. but my point is that if it lands on the weekend, then tough shit. that's my pet peeve. the lots of businesses close even if the holiday was on the weekend....

I feel you. I wanted to order some food from this store up the road but they were closed because of it. I was hungry, dammit.

Banks shouldn't get the day after Independence Day off. It's not as if Independence Day is a real holiday, it's only celebrating the day a Will Smith movie came out, yet you don't have an I, Robot day or a Bad Boys II day.
