Since I labor from beach apartment and make our schedules, I’m not constantly affected by proper holidays if I’m not celebrating something myself.
I love the family partys while in the Winter time holidays, but that’s where it ends for me. I never remember what afternoons Memorial and Veterans Day fall on, despite having several close family members who are veterans of foreign wars. My assignments are due on a particular day each month and after that I figure out which afternoons I’m going to really labor and which hours. The federal holidays usually only affect myself and others if I need to visit a bank for a withdrawal or the post office to mail a package. That has all changed now with the plethora of medical and recreational cannabis stores in this state. They use every single conceivable holiday as an excuse to put their marijuana up for sale at lower prices than usual. Recently the people I was with and I had 30% off for Veterans Day. I was ecstatic to see the vets getting additional discounts stacking on top of the existing veterans discounts that several marijuana stores have every day of the year. In some instances vets were getting up to 72% off on their entire orders, but they had to wait in endless lines with non-vets who were trying to score the same products for 30% off instead. What wonderful is a Veterans Day sale if the veterans have to suffer just to secure their favorite products at a discounted rate? I don’t understand the mindset, beyond sheer greed on the area of these marijuana stores. With that in mind, I avoided the cannabis stores and ordered through a cannabis delivery service instead.
