I know it sucks so bad for the employees, but I love it when places have longer Christmas hours (I'm talking to you, TARGET and the MALL!). Sucks you can't ask for days off though! I remember once seeing a job ad for a vet clinic and it was like "due to heartworm season, no one can request days off for these 2 (or 3?) months..." Seriously??! Bologna. Heartworm season is not the zombie apocalypse lol. I decided today that I would like to buy new jeans, but I don't really have the funds to support this decision. Because I just bought new bras the other day. Haha.
