It's Official: My July 4 Sucked.

I was all set for a great fireworks display, had U2 in my cd player to lessen the loud fireworks, when out of nowhere, fog rolls in off the water. this stupid fog kept gettign thicker until i couldn't see the people three rows ahead of me
three or so hours of waiting and they cancel the fireowkrs show and reschedual for tomarrow(what's the point of that? July 5 isn't independance day, it's just not the same). on the way back to the car and on the way home(when we were stuck in traffic)people all over the place were setting off illeagle fireworks that were exploding everywhere, down streets, in the street, near houses. i mean, i don't even like sparklers and fireworks were exploding on the ground near our car

Your 4th of July was fantastic compared to mine. I worked close to 10 hours today on the busiest sale day I can remember at my job (we did $750k in sales just today). The place was a mess and we were understaffed as usual. If we were lucky we got about 50% of the work done for the next day. Days like this make me wonder why I ever got into retail in the first place.

And the best thing? Today (Saturday) is going to be even worse (we're having a 3 day tax free sale), cause everyone's still off, and the fireworks and barbeques are over.

Sorry to hijack the thread...I needed to vent.

it's okay. I'm just glad to know my fourth of July could have been worse

We had a cookout. I was the only American. Then I heard fireworks later.
