Having been out of USA for most of the past ten St. Patrick's Days, I didn't realize it was such a big deal to so many douchebags. I mean I had people asking me last Thursday what my St. Patty's plans were. I'm like, "It's next week, and no I don't celebrate fake holidays." Frankly, I don't celebrate most real holidays.
I sort of can't believe that people give a shit about it, at all. But then again, I realize that it's not St. Patrick that these people care about, it's drinking that they care about. I always chuckle when the general public is like, "But it's an excuse to drink!" To which my response is always, "You're an adult(albeit a pathetic excuse for an adult), why do you need an excuse to drink? If you want to drink, then fucking drink."
The barbershop was SLAMMED tonight. A few of the guys I cut mentioned that they were surprised at how busy we were since it was St. Patrick's Day. Seriously? It's because not everyone's life revolves around drinking holidays(somewhat surprising in beer-soaked Denver), and when you need haircut, you need a haircut, green t-shirt or not. Maybe I'm just getting old and bitter, or maybe in all my time away from USA I am finding myself more and more shocked at how much dumber Americans get by the week. So damn dumb in fact, they believe that they are Irish. Durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
