Found out last night my family's scheduled the big Thanksgiving Dinner....on a day I'm working.
I've been in the same job for twenty-mumble years and the same biz nearly all my working life and we don't get extra days off, just the holiday (if we are lucky) and whatever regular days off we already have. I've had normal weekends off for years.
My family knows this. Of what's a four-day weekend for people with nonessential jobs, they picked Friday, the one day I do not have off.
Hey, I can take a hint. Okay, then. Let's skip Christmas, too, 'kay?
