Happy Easter? Bah, humbug!

I do not begrudge you and yours the long weekend. But please, dear fellow bloglodytes, allow me to wallow and vent.
I'm working all weekend.
That's tonight, tomorrow, Sunday and Monday.
Yeah, I know, sucks to be me.
But adding to the frustration is the fact that there's a full moon right now, and the nutbar calls to our newsroom have already started -- and guess who gets to answer the phone? I've had two already, and I still have five hours left in my shift.
Oh, well, after Monday, I only have to work on Thursday, then I'm off to Cancun for a week.
Happy Easter!

One was an elderly lady concerned about our Kidcaster -- a cute little 6-year-old girl who successfully auditioned to help our weather specialist. We mentioned her full name and her school, and the lovely lady is worried that some creep is going to track her down.

The other was just a guy who started giving me hell for sending people to our website to get info like what's open and what's closed Easter weekend, and then rambled and bounced all around, insulting me and our news operation in the process (I think, if I understood some of his rambling).
Actually, touch wood, that was the last one. But we're on the air in half an hour, and that's when the phone often starts ringing.

I wish I read this post earlier. I'd look up your news room number and call ya, pretending to be one of the many wingnuts who have called me over the years. They add colour, and something to talk about when you're stuck working when no one should. If the Easter Bunny was any good at all, he'd fill in for anybody who has to work on the holiday.
