This weekend is/was Victoria Day for us Canadians. Which means a 3 day weekend. Since l am in New York, l have to work today, the Monday of that 3 day weekend.
Next weekend is the US 3 day weekend. Memorial Day, and guess where l will be? Back in Canada. So again l miss out. Now don't go feeling too sorry for me. A saying we use in Canada is "oh, you're so hard done by". I know some of the USA don't have a clue what that means.
When l lived in Virginia, people would look at me like l had 3 heads when l would say that. They had not heard that saying before. I think it comes from England....or at least the UK people l know, know it.
It kind of means.....Oh, you have it so ruff....with a heavy dose of sarcasm.
So, yes, l am " so hard done by". Working and missing out of a 3 day weekend (twice) surrounded by beautiful sights and working out of a campground. Life Sucks (heavy sarcasm).
