The Next Holiday...

Thu Jul 04, 2002 10:04 pm

Labor Day is coming up, an intended celebration of the working man and woman. It's original intent was to give everyone a day off from work, but has been turned into an orgy of Labor Day Sales, back-to-school sales etc...thus requiring thousands of people to work on Labor Day so other people can get a good deal on crap they can buy any other day of the year. This is the one holiday that should be observed by all non-essential businesses, but greed has bastardized it beyond belief. Why not just do away with damn thing...

just like the terms "Nazi" and "terrorist"...the overuse and exploitation have decreased their value and their essence.

I pretty much refuse to spend money on any holiday, why make other people work? This really burns me....

It's no different than any other $commercialized$ holiday. Just think, next week it will already be time to hang the Christmas decorations (not for me anyway) so the masses can be so tired of them that on the night of 12/25 they can be on the curb ready to be hauled away to the dump. BTW just a very large pet peeve of mine.
