Yep, but us in the private sector that must make a profit to stay in Business, can not be so frivolous with our time as you know. :banghead:

So Canadians, it is now your day after Thanksgiving. Do you have the day off so you can beat each other up at the shopping malls? Are you being bombarded with Christmas ads?

No, but they are probably munching on cold turkey sandwiches, drinking beer and watching football :banghead:

Nope!
Same as you bunch south of the border.
"Most" times we drive home bitching about the family dinner we just sat through beside the most annoying in-law of the bunch.

That generally means Iím stuck beside the wifeís cousin, the "wanna be cop", who give me the evil eye while I sit there making fun of her hair.
I did find out this year though that itís a plot by the rest of them to make the bitch suffer.

Not only is she an annal retentive New England fan, she hats "Un-politically correct people".
Thus the seating position beside a knuck dragging, Ra!der loving, stoned, irreverent, tell it like it is even if you really didnít want to hear the truth beast like me :D

This year "she", who I refer to as "Fem-a-Nazi" to her face, said "Iím not sitting beside HIM next year."

I said "cool, that means not only do I not have to smell you, as well as be attacked by that rats nest on top of your head, but stand a good chance of not even seeing you if I can really piss you off".

Then snorted a line of peas up my nose and asked for the gravy dish to wash them down.

The rest of the family burst into fits of laughter, she turned as red as the cranberries.
Me I just got up from the table, went out to the shed with the Uncle and rolled up another one :thumb:
