and another short post...

This country needs to be a bit more like Singapore so that a law would be created right when I say....this....

"There ought to be a law making it very malfing illegal for schools to not be in session on a federal holiday other than Christmas and Thanksgiving in which the banks and post offices are also closed and the people on the boards of those districts that do close their schools on those days lined up against a wall and shot!"

But then all the people that swarmed into Mazzio's today just b/c OMGWTMBBQ!!! It's President's Day!!!!111!!!111eleventyone!!!!!! and are very malfing stupid b/c they risk their lives when the streets are like crap...they ought to be shot too.

And if I was the one with the gun I'd be a modern day Vlad the Impaler.

The part about Singapore...I know because I had a friend that lives there and so I was told a minor exaggeration that I exaggerated. That all a citizen has to do is complain to the govt or just complain PERIOD and WHAM BAM....law created! hehehehehe

Hey, I don't mind that there wasn't school on Presidents day. It was kind of a nice break for me. :P

LOL I knew it would (though was half afraid you'd be ticked)
you'd like it b/c you're a teacher...

plus you're in a job where you have a fixed number of "customers" every day as compared to a job that one could be expected to stay late because not only was there a lot of business the previous day at any time during it...but also that very day just because 1) it is a federal "holiday" where nearly everyone; their cousins; all the casualties of all 4 Succession Wars, Clan Invasion, Great Refusal, and the Word of Blake Jihad; and the kitchen sink come to eat at Mazzio's and 2) the same amount of people come out also for the reason that the previous weekend was WORSE weather wise and therefore they prefer since it is their day off to take the kids out to eat lunch to take care of everyone's "cabin fever"

and I still say there's a hell of a lot other places to go too....

Kids may not like Chinese and the other type of buffet restaurant (b/c of veggies I guess) but hell take them to McD's as far as the hothers they still have other options :P

I still wish for some kinda doorway that locks out people until we all get caught up and then lets more people in...or some setup that gives customers a semilethal jolt when they all try to leave at once for any reason. Or if we can legally and otherwise get away with having a sign similar to the hotel vacancy sign telling potential customers that we're slammed and to please eat out somewhere else for the day.

Oh yeah, I do like teaching on some days

but after a month of doing it straight, of teaching about 140 kids daily, it gets tiring... TRUST ME. Vacation is needed.

Same here on me in fact since I had the hard time of getting this year's MLK Day off...I learned a few tricks from reading ahead in my HRM textbook. I'll use ADA!!! LOL

and if that pain in the asshole Danny says that it would be undue hardship for me to...for example...ask for a week's vacation off to use some of my refund to take a plane trip down to see Sherri, the "undue hardship" being not only finding someone willing to fill my shift for the whole week but also the possibility of letting me go on the vacation and not filling in my brief vacancy....

Then I can pull out the trick of the "family vacation" loophole. If my mom isn't agreeable to help me by going with me, then I'll just as a very last resort tell Danny that I'm taking a vacation to visit "FUTURE family" ie "family vacation."

Danny may or may not be a wolf in sheep's clothing but if I have to, this sheep can and will don wolf's clothing.

Even though I love going on break, I agree. School Districts make such a big deal about holidays and it's past ridiculous where I live.

What I dont understand is, why are certain schools (such as TCC) open when all of the other public schools, banks (except at walmart lol) and post offices are closed? I can understand private schools being open because they dont normally follow the same schedule as public schools, but geez. I appreciated the 2 hr late start yesterday at TCC but still.

that surprises me too....
NSU had some type of screwy thing the week of Thanksgiving.

I remember when I went to TCC and back when I was working for the Pizza Hut 71st and County Line...I used to have morning classes and if I remember correctly the reason why I switched at one point to evening was that somehow mom quit this janator service...no wait....okay....oh yeah...she quit that because their contract changed with the MCI building and they couldn't place her elsewhere so she got a night job at this small newspaper, that didn't pan out so she went with a small business home cleaning outfit so I had to change to night...

So anyway at one point when I had morning classes was when I guess God was setting me up to work five days a week because when I started working they only scheduled me only three days a week Thurs-Sat from 8:30 to 12. I forgot what they did when I started and had MWF classes but all I remember is that I did have days off because I would bring my work uniform to campus on school days and my amateur radio handie talkie that operated on 2 meters. After class when I went to be picked up by mom I turned on the radio and tuned in to my ham radio club's repeater and dialed this thing called an autopatch which is something a ham uses to access the phone via his mobile radio/handie talkie. We had this type of answering machine back then that I knew the remote control code to play back messages and so I autopatched my home phone, the machine would answer, I would transmit the code number and if the message on the machine (when there was one) was my supervisor and I hear the beginning of the message, I'd drop the patch (because it's illegal for ham operators to conduct business on the air so that was iffy to do but I had to do it so I can know not to go allll the way home and hear that and waste gas when we could drive straight to my work).
