Since early 94, I find that all holidays are just a huge inconvenience. I've barely celebrated a single one. I began worrying about Saturday's upcoming holiday well in advance. (Columbus Day)
Early a.m. I had 2 long convos/debates with the bus drivers. we were trying to figure out what would be opened and what would be closed. I can see cars parked at one of the libraries but that doesn't mean they aren't there for another reason. Why are there cars at the bank? How can a bak be opened on a fed. holiday?
The driver said," well the schools are opened but the libraries are probably closed! " (I had to ride around on the bus to figure out what is open and what is closed)
Since I'm living hand to mouth and working 7 days a week - a holiday is nothing more then one more day where you can't work on bettering your circumstances.
