Oh, bleep "First World Problems".
You're allowed to be upset when shorted a week at work. I am sure you were counting on that time to decompress.
I am sorry about your family member, Perri.
Not that many of us can help what is going on. Many didn't vote for these people, and we had no control over secret sessions and bills being snuck through. As I read over everything I only saw one item on the list that didn't piss me off. I've had to show ID to get another ID, a diploma, checks cashed, beer, an account at a video store, etc. It won't kill me to show it when I vote. Other than that, get out of my face. My friends who teach have been so upset.
**And this is again where I say... If you cut something, cut free cell phones rather than funding for disabled children, or unemployment. Free basic land line services were already provided for years. People get laid off or fired from factories here, every other day, since the 80's.
They are also messing with food programs. Some places that provide at least 1 or 2 meals for the elderly every week are facing closure.
