To add on to both "working in customer service" and "pet peeves," we have this... have I mentioned I'm glad I don't work retail anymore?

And the USPS has made a deal with Amazon to start making deliveries on Sunday, starting in NYC and LA first.

I would hate to be an Amazon employee any time of the year but especially during the holidays.

I'm glad my store isn't open on Thanksgiving. They have toyed with the idea and have tried it at other stores; however, it never works. Corporation are becoming more greedy and its sad. Let people spend the holiday with their families. a-hard-days-night-george-2

I can't stand Wal-Mart. Them making their employees go in to work on Thanksgiving night makes me like them even less.

Wally World has never been closed on Thanksgiving. The only day they close is Christmas and down here when there is a bad hurricane, otherwise they are always open. This does mean there will probably more workers at work than previous years though.

 

So up with the turkey and Macca hands!a-hard-days-night-john-6

This is a class on proper pronunciation on how to pronounce 'Ireland' correctly, now I am not picking on anyone in particular *looks at Americans* but it grinds my gear whenever I hear somebody say Ireland as 'i-er-land' (it always seems to be Americans, now I am sure many of you lovely people do not pronounce it this way but this is for the few who do). It is pronounced 'Are-land' or if you are pushing it, the 'a' not harsh but light and fluffy like a sheep or the Irish accent  a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

Class dismissed, homework is page 910, question no. 9 and I expect ye to have it done by Sitarday Saturday

Congrats mja you're speaking Irish! Éire is Irish for Ireland , it's used as an almost insult by Northerners though "Oh you live in Éiiirrree don't you?" When will they get it in their heads they're not from England, Scotland or Wales you were born and raised in Ireland therefore you're Irish, just because you have a different currency, religion, political and educational system, still born in the same country

Three of my grandparents, though all born in London, were the children of Irish immigrants. In my family it has always been the Republic of Éire.

It's officially recognized as both Éire and Ireland but in the original constitution it said Éire is the name of the country except when said in English where it shall be called Ireland. So in every other language but English it should be called Éire. On stamps, passports and Irish euro coins it says Éire though.

My Grandad on my Mum's side would always say, "It's Éire! Don't matter how much English is spoken, except when it comes to the name of where my parents came from!"

I have a few:

Like said before, when people claim you're unintelligent when you're not and when people say that the Beatles didn't do much for society

I also hate when metalheads hate The Beatles just for the sake of it

TRENDS. What's the point in liking something if you won't remember it in 2 months?

People who ONLY don't listen to The Beatles because they aren't new or in style (well, to swag people)

Selfish people

People who just want to start fist fights with everyone all the time

^^that's only a few
