When I was in the UK, I always volunteered to work Bank Holidays because they are so #ty. You can't go anywhere because all the sheeple have the same
idea, resulting in 10 - 20 mile tailbacks on the motorways. And if by some miracle you get to where you want to go, its packed like a tin of John
Now I'm in the US and see that the same thing happens here - the only difference is the name of the holidays.
I was not aware that this weekend was the one before 'Presidents day', so KayEm and myself went off to the coast planning to book into a motel and
have a nice weekend in peace. No fecking way ! ... Half of the population of Oregon must have been on the way there. Add to that the "I can't stand
Valentines day but I better take my girl/fiancee/wife out for a meal or there will be hell to pay" neanderthals and you can imagine the chaos.
No fecking motels either - stuffed to the gills with sheeple.
Feck this - next time I plan to go anywhere I will check to make sure there are no bastard holidays at the same time.
