I hate holiday weekends.
It's okay if it's a three-day weekend because then I get a day off (sometimes). But if it's holiday weekend that doesn't involve a day off, that really stinks.
For example, Mother's Day weekend. It meant that going out to a restaurant just for simple meal on Sunday, there were tons of crowds. Basically, the fact that it's a holiday means that everything is super crowded.
Not that we shouldn't appreciate mothers and all, but I just don't like appreciating them by taking them to a crowded restaurant.
