Okay no you know what
fuck the person who made this picture
I get the point, ‘there’s always someone having a worse day’ but you know what REALLY fucking sucks? At least the men and women overseas will have something like a thanksgiving, if they aren’t on patrol. They’ll talk to one another, have companionship, care about what they’re doing.They’ll call their families or be sad they can’t and hang with their platoon mates and squad buddies and talk about turkey and feel that companionship for at least a little bit.
They will not be treated like mindless drones. They will not be poked, they will not be prodded, they will not be -screamed at- by a bunch of mindless assholes who just want the lowest possible price right now or I’ll speak to your manager. They won’t have to hope to fuck their paycheck will cover their living expenses.
And you know what? chances are most of the soldiers overseas have wives or husbands or lovers or parents or siblings who ARE working fucking back breaking retail, maybe because that soldier is overseas but maybe because they don’t have any other fiscal choice.
You get shot at, okay, I can respect that. Now you fucking respect that I spend most of my day treated like a walking register that spits out answer coins. Happy fucking thanksgiving. I’m thankful you haven’t deserted your cause, now you be thankful we’re here manning the home front and giving up the same holiday you are not because we chose to, but because we are forced to.
Land of the free. Unless you work retail. So when are you gonna get on protecting those rights?
