I admit that the subject line of this post sounds over dramatic for such a ridiculous post, and don't think that I am hating, but I woke up to great disappointment this morning and it is all thanks to Microsoft and I suppose 1980's grade school rules about how holidays fall on the calender.
For years I had it in my mind that the third Thursday of November was supposed to be Thanksgiving, and when Microsoft made the impression in my mind that Xbox One would be released on Black Friday and then was scheduled to be released on Nov 22nd (the third Friday this year), it was solidified in my mind that Thanks giving would be tomorrow.
So I woke up this morning all excited that I wouldn't need to take the kids to school tomorrow and Friday, but when my daughter mentioned that she did not have school on the day before Thanksgiving, I took a look at the school calendar, I found that they had listed Thanksgiving as next Thursday. Confused I looked it up on Google, and the date was confirmed. I was devastated, I mean I wasn't expecting a big to do for Thanksgiving due to the fact that I have to work that day anyway, but I get excited any time that I can sleep in for a few extra hours.
Suffice it to say, I wish Microsoft would had waited for Black Friday to release the Xbox one. I will be cursing Microsoft up and down the next two days as I stare bleary eyed down the street as I drive my kids to school.
