Where does your loyalty lay?
Ah yes, I worked today just like most Americans. I worked with strange feelings within me deisring resolution. Answers, I wanted answers. Hell, I still want answers! My day was extremely odd. Tensions were high at work which was to be expected. The ultimate was near the end of the day when someone from Los Angeles had the audacity to complain that we were closed yesterday! YESTERDAY!? Not like we were under seige or anything. Not like the country was under attack.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Of couuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrse not.
She then complained that it was important that we should have been open yesterday. "Other businesses were open." Yes that's a direct quote. She then continued and told me why it was important that why we should have been open... get this, because she couldn't get to the Internet.
((insert pause for effect))
Yes, I was ready to jump through the phone and strangle her. HELLO?! WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT!!!?!!! GET A CLUE PLEASE! Thousands of people died and being close to the city WE KNOW PEOPLE THERE AND WANT TO BE WITH our familes and friends. There are those near and far of course that have relatives, friends, etc. in the city. COME ON MAN! Throw down your cards and tell me, where does your loyaty lay... <- meaning -> out
