    Ebenezer: Every Christmas you say the same thing. And every Christmas it's just as inconvenient as the Christmas before. Good night.

    Bring on a return to the Dickensian era.
    That's the first thing I thought of when I saw the people on this thread! That exact quote, "I suppose you'll be wanting the whole day tomorrow." It's a classic! LOL Thanks for that.

    This whole partisan system has created a bunch of Ebenezers.

    yeah...that's why they need to unionize. As an individual you're a replacable person with no leverage. As a union you could virtually shut down shop and actually have some leverage.

    um, yeah. still not feeling the love for a bunch of under-educated, unskilled crybabies who got upset because they had to go to work at midnight on Thanksgiving. it's not like they had to work all day thanksgiving day.

    Thanksgiving last year, I spent most of the day riding in an M1151 escorting a convoy of MREs and Water halfway across southern Iraq.

    I'll count you among those that can't be satisfied under any condition.

    Why exactly are you even worried about someone else? Isn't the whole issue between them and their employer? Why does someone unhappy with their working conditions such a big deal in the conservative blogosphere?

    You're such a tough guy. And you military types never ever complain about anything, ever. Right?
