Last night, the cashier at Sam's Club greeted me with an "Have a good Presidents day." I realize I live in a political area, but this is Iowa, not Utah or any other state that doesn't matter in the electoral process. Our first language is state rights and I expect to be greeted in my states language not popular vote. If I were in a political restaurant, I could understand being greeted in the political process. I felt very disrespected. What is happening to our wonderful country?
President's Day is the commercial equivalent of "George Washington's Birthday", officially celebrated nationwide on the third Monday in February, which yesterday was. Since the holiday does not fall exactly on Washington's birthday (Feb. 22), many people use the phrase "President's Day" as a way of incorporating respect for both Washington and Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday was Feb. 14th.
What state language phrase should you have heard? "Happy 3rd Monday in Iowa day"? Yesterday was a national holiday and the Sam's Club greeter was being nice.
That seems to be something folks shouldn't do with you.
