Default Working after/on a holiday sucks

Blargh.

So yesterday was Canada Day, but the "holiday" off work is today (everything was open yesterday).

I'm working, cause my bosses hate me and wouldn't close down, and nobody is here.

I also have a huuuuge headache, from being out way too late last night

Ugh, I know the feeling

I'm off tomorrow and Wednesday for the 4th, and I feel like the only person who isn't off today! Ian is at home, and my parents are at a 5 star resort on the beach! We're meeting up with my parents tomorrow to spend the day with them there, and I SO wish we could've gone over today. Stupid work.

Yah, we don't even normally get the day after Canada Day off, this year we only have it off cause It landed on a Sunday and god forbid the government not get a day off for Canada Day.

ETA: I celebrate 4th of July as well, normally. I'm thinking I'll have to turn down the invitation this year, I work both Wednesday and Thursday, and I'm not doing this again LOL

Yeah, the only holiday all year that either my husband or I get more than 1 day off for is Christmas (we get Christmas eve as well).

Maybe this'll make you feel better -- The only way I get any holiday off is if it happens to fall on my every-other-weekend-off schedule (which isn't much!) During holidays we still have the building open from 8a-8p and somebody has to answer the phones through the night.

It's lame and boring at my store too. Plus I came in and none of the closing paperwork got done so I had to do it. Then my coworker called in with food poisoning so I had to call a staff member I didn't really want to work with to close tonight (and guess who it was that didn't do the paperwork last night and left far too much cash in the till) so I'm kinda grumpy today... At least I have merch work to do, all our new displays need to be put up.

I just got screamed at and called names by a lady because we don't carry her specific brand and packaging size of treats. Lovely day.

I'm okay working, I think I get extra pay today. Plus I need to work all I can so I can make up for taking a week off in a couple weeks here to go to FLAT COAT NATIONALS! Woo!
