To those crying because they are working

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

One be grateful you have a damned job and can come home at the end of the day/night and still see your family!


How many are spending their holidays away from their families totally?

Quit your bitching and get over it!


My mother in law hasn't had a holiday off since the Thanksgiving her husband passed! Does she like it? No! But she knew it would be here job to work Thanksgiving/black Friday dealing with crazies at not just one but BOTH jobs!


My best friend is over seas for yet another Thanksgiving, why? To make sure you whiney bitches have peace and comfort! Knowing the bad guys ain't fighting in OUR back yard! Why because its his job


Suck it up and quit bitching

Sometimes they are, and how exactly do you know the order will even be shipped today? 

Quoting PinkParadox:

What I find ironic is how people think shopping online is better.  Like your warehouse orders are filled by robots.  Those warehouse workers work long hard hours....


*If you read my post and there are mistakes in my spelling or grammar please note that I never learned either in school and I am currently learning them now. If you see a mistake POLITELY point it out and I'll be more than happy to correct my mistake. Here's a fun little siggy for your enjoyment. *

I agree completely. It's about context, right?

I should never complain about the electricity going out and my DD going without a warm bottle because some people don't even have either!

Following this line of thinking, no one, anywhere, should never ever be able to complain about anything.

Quoting ButterMeUp:

I'm supposed to care, right? So because our soldiers are doing the job the signed up for, others can't complain. Bullshit oh anonymous one!

I hope you never complain about the lines at stores because some have no food.

I hope you never complain about the lines at voting polls, some have no right to vote.

I hope you don't compain about your kids, some have no kids

I hope you not ever breath a sign of pity, some can't breath.

FUCK YOU AND HAPPY THANKS GIVIN!

My husband works in a warehouse, for a huge company.  They are open every day of the year, and working 60 hours this week.

My husband isnt complaining.....but if he did he has every right too. EVERYONE bitchs at one time or another about their job. Its life doesn't mean hes not grateful or thankful. Hell i dont complain but yes my 5yr old misses daddy at dinner.

So My 5yr old can't at all be bothered Daddy has to work? All because you said so.....or cuz it could be worse or others have too....ok shut up.

I bet he'd be more bothered if he didn't have a job.  How much holiday pay does he get?

I'm pretty damn sure both you and he would be more mad and upset if he was in Afghanistan, or Kuwait or someplace else.

Or, if he had paid the ultimate sacrifice so you and your child were able to live in Freedom.

It sucks working on holidays no matter what your job is - especially when all your family is getting together.

Doesn't mean they can't vent.

I would not want to be working today or tomorrow - people get crazy!!!

Thankfully I don't have to!

I understand.  When I was working, my husband and I always worked opposite shifts, so that someone was with the childrem.  We worked for a company that never closed...so we have worked a lot of holidays.  Since I've been a SAHM, my husband has always worked nights.  My 2 girls don't get that much time with their daddy, when they do we make it count.  At the end of the day, it is what it is.  In this economy, I am so grateful that he's working at all.  I count my blessings, instead of whining about what should be different....but, that's just how I am.  I'm a doer, not a complainer.  I don't complain about things, I figure out what I'm going to do and move forward.  Anything else is pretty much a waste of time.  JMO

My thought is this. While I understand it does stink to work a holiday (I worked every other holiday working in the hospital) you know what you are signing up for. In today's economy those who have a job should be thankful they have one. Does that mean they can't be a little sad about it? No, everybody is entitled to that emotion. But does it meam there should be petitions going around and all that stuff? No. They took that job knowing full well holiday work may happen. I worked several Thanksgivings/Christmas's/Fourth of July's. You just have to make the best of it.
