Re: Happy Birthday, fellow Yanks.
Down with the Brits.
Funny story - my older brother works for a company owned and headquartered by some British company. They actually sent out a nasty email to the employees in his office that they were NOT to take the holiday off as they don't recognize it and it would be a slap in their fact to allow them to have it off.
****ing British losers. I told him to email the HR whomever back and tell them we kicked their ass twice and would gladly do it again over and over again, but he has no balls. Funny how they take all kinds of extra holidays they don't allow the Americans to take off as well.
Some toothless wonder told me that, and I would be out the door and with a competing company.
Greatest holiday in the greatest country the world has ever known.
