Wow — it didn’t even occur to me that “Black Monday” referred to MLK Day. It’s funny how racism pervades peoples’ language. I once heard someone talk about “jew-ing” someone down on a price. I’m sure she didn’t even think the term she was using was incredibly offensive; she just thought about it as something her backwoods friends like to say.
I love national holidays. I get paid time and a half if I’m scheduled to work that day, plus an additional 8 hours of holiday pay (which I get even if I don’t work that day). Also, if the holiday falls on what would normally be my payday, I get paid a day early.
Having spent a couple months on Unemployment benefits, you apply for benefits on Monday and receive benefits on Wednesday. So that doesn’t explain his argument. If you are government employed, you get the paid the 1st and the 15th, except on holidays when you get paid the day prior or the Friday before. You can also get paid every Friday, excluding Holidays, or the first and third Thursday. Since most of the TLDR group have stopped reading this, someone should comment a good mobile porn site for Droids so I don’t look like the freak.
