I’ve always wanted to be married and at least be pregnant by the time I’m 30. I need to be with the guy for at least 2 years, and have 2 years to save up for the wedding. So I have 10 months to find a guy.
Who wants me?
I’m going to buy some cats.
But sometimes black bears are brown in colour, and brown bears can be black in colour. So you might be screwed anyway.
I’m an introvert;
I like watching TV alone,
I like going for walks on my own,
I like spending time with myself.
But sometimes I will see someone with their partner,
or a mother with her child,
and realise that I like being alone but I don’t like being lonely.
A Pizza Hut General Manager Was Fired Today For Wanting His Employees To Be Off For Thanksgiving To Spend Time With Their Families
With many stores staying open during Thanksgiving this year thereby forcing workers to miss out on spending the holiday with their families, one store manager decided to take a stand on behalf of his employees — and was promptly terminated.
Tony Rohr had held various position at the Pizza Hut in Elkhart, Indiana, since starting out as a cook there some ten years ago.
He was eventually promoted to general manager of the franchise, but his decision to refuse an order to open the store on Thanksgiving ultimately cost him the job.
"I said why can’t we be the company that stands up and says we care about our employees and they can have the day off," he told local CBS affiliate WSBT.
According to Rohr, the store, owned by the franchise behemoth Franchise Management Investors US, has typically been closed on Thanksgiving to give employees time off to spend with loves ones.
When he was told to either open the store or sign a letter of resignation, Rohr opted for a third option: Sending his bosses a letter of protest.
"I am not quitting. I do not resign however I accept that the refusal to comply with this greedy, immoral request means the end of my tenure with this company," Rohr wrote in his letter. "I hope you realize that it’s the people at the bottom of the totem pole that make your life possible."
WSBT says the franchisee’s director of operations insists Rohr quit, but also acknowledged that the decision to keep doors open on Thanksgiving came from corporate in response to other companies doing the same.
Pizza Hut’s corporate offices have so far remained mum on the matter, but its Facebook page has been inundated with angry posts from customers unhappy with Rohr’s termination.

"I hope you realize that it’s the people at the bottom of the totem pole that make your life possible."
This guy is spot on and makes a point that I feel never gets driven home hard enough, and is completely lost on the folks who say shit like, “You just hate rich people.”
Without their cooks, delivery drivers, cashiers and store managers, Pizza Hut is nothing. These franchise owners make their cash on the backs of the people working in their stores for meager wages. Their workers’ time and energy is filling the franchise owners’ bank accounts.
The least they could do is treat their workers with some freaking dignity.
Had a discussion with someone about this last night. The corporate model, especially if we look at McDonalds and Wal-Mart’s recent and consistent casual disregard of their employees, is very rarely about treating their employees like human beings.
Corporations seem to have forgotten that if you look after your employees, they’ll look after you.
