    appreciate it.

    I usually work Thanksgiving for the 12hrs of OT. Pretty easy day except for the disturbance calls involving dunk extended family members.

    The holidays do bring out the drink.

    Yeah, I always enjoy reading the police reports tomorrow to see how many people were stabbed over a piece of turkey.

    To anyone who'se going to miss Thanksgiving dinner with their family, thank you for your sacrifice. Hopefully you'll get Xmas off.

    Stay safe.

    Thanks. Working nights to boot. Special duty at Walmart tonight(I'm a glutton for punishment, oh and $225 cash for nine hours) and then nights for the weekend.

    I work tonight on the box. I don't think it will be too bad. Well maybe not. I'll still be on shift when all the people line up for Black Friday. Crap, why didn't I request tonight off.
