A Side of Judgement

16 Nov
Today’s Special: HATRED
So…the holidays are coming. People are looking forward to spending time with their families and having vacation time. Not me. I serve at a place that is open 365 days a year and pretends to give a damn about American traditions. (Wouldn’t one of those traditions be spending time at HOME on a holiday? Hmmm.)
Even though I am used to this, it doesn’t mean I like it. I don’t think anything should be open on the holidays, except the ER. Heart attacks don’t know it’s Christmas, so they get a free pass. I don’t understand wanting to go anywhere on Thanksgiving or Christmas. All I want to do is eat, sleep and then repeat that pattern a few times between Trivial Pursuit matches. I don’t want to go shopping or to the movies and I definitely don’t want to go to a friggin’ theme park after eating a huge meal.
I know some of my friends go out on these days and I would like to take this time to tell them this;  I’m judging you. I think you are horrible and selfish for doing this. YOU are the reason someone else’s holiday is effed, YOU selfish buttholes. STAY HOME. You don’t know how to cook, figure it out dummies. You are bored, get a book. Don’t go out because I guarantee you the person helping you when you go out hates you to your core.
Every table I serve on the holidays I hate. They are horrible people and my Bea Arthur judgement is crystal clear on those days. These people aren’t even enjoying their day either, they are too busy bitching at their hell babies. What a waste of their day and more importantly, MINE! Did Home Alone teach my generation nothing? Going away for the holidays sucks. Stay home with your weird uncle, chatty grandma and cousins. DUH!!
Random Related Rant: People with boyfriends and girlfriends, stop pretending you are married. I do not understand stressing out about going to your boyfriend’s parents house on the holidays and whining about having to eat two dinners in one day. I have had boyfriends during the holidays and I never even thought, ‘Oh I better go to his parents’ house for turkey and stuffing too.’ Nope, I looked down at my hand, didn’t see a wedding ring and said, “See you on the 26th. Your Mom’s a bad cook and I don’t HAVE to eat her crappy cooking yet, so I’m going to my house…where they know how to cook.” Plus, you’ll probably break up and like a dummy, you dedicated time to a family you won’t even be in anyways. I’ll tie both rants up in a neat little bow: STAY HOME!

    >I work in a nursing home, and yeah sure the nurses need to be there on Christmas but do the patients really need my psychiatric services 24/7…I think not. This year my boss decided to be hateful and make every one of us work on Christmas, when there will be nothing there to do since the majority of patients will be out with their families…like normal people. The new girl asked on her first day, "so is there a holiday rotation?" to which my boss replied, "nope!".

    >How can I even argue?Clearly your writing has evolved.Positive note: I'm thankful that you have a job that is legal and honorable.

    >Casey, that is lame town. I am sorry.Maybelline, you can not argue. And to answer the question you are, I'm sure, thinking; No, it does not get old being right all the time. I think I get that trait from my Mother.

    >You and I are on the same wavelength, sister!! The place I slave for is still smart enough to offer to be closed for TG and Christmas, but those are the limits. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they decided to take that away before too long, too, just like they have every other nice thing that used to be true about working for the place. I never go to any store or other place on national holidays…it's flipping RUDE!! And maybe, just MAYBE, if all the freaking jackholes would stop going out on holidays, companies would stop being so douchey that they work their employees on holidays that should be spent with families.And I L-O-V-E the bit about unmarried couples!!! ROTFLMFAO That is sheer genius! xD

    >Superb!! Most excellent rant yet!! I too harbor these same feelings, and in fact, I hate working holidays so much that I told my "one day a week boss" that I would not even work the day AFTER Thanksgiving. (Since my one stupid day to work there is Friday.) I hate retail. (Oh, this is Suzanne, by the way.)

    >AMEN! I used to work for the theme parks in FL and there was nothing more hateful than taking care of random strangers, on a 16 hour shift, knowing the rest of your family is having a wonderful day without you…

    >Your mother must be a wonderfully brilliant person. Now, what are your thoughts on those nuts that head out around midnight after the Thanksgiving dishes have been put away to shop for Christmas?
