Talkback 16 Caller from Pottsville Absolutely Unloads on Valentine’s Day

And man, some people absolutely hate the holiday.

The long-time listener, first-time caller says:

I wish you’d knock it off with talkin about the stupid nonsense of a holiday, Valentine’s Day.
It’s not fair to the people that don’t have anybody.
I’M SICK OF IT!
I’M SICK OF ALL THESE GOD DARNED HOLIDAYS WHERE YOU HAVE TO BE A COUPLE TO ENJOY ‘EM!

If for some reason, you can’t see that video player above, we’ve created some visuals to help you understand this caller’s outrage at not only Valentine’s Day, but news coverage of it.

The Most Hated Holiday?

There’s nothing official on the books but this lady is likely not alone. You may even agree with her. Hopefully, you’re not as enraged over Valentine’s Day as she is, though.

No one forces you to enjoy or celebrate or even recognize any holiday. There are some you shouldn’t ignore — Independence Day first among them — but for days like Valentine’s Day, don’t feel you have to include yourself.

If it’s not for you, just go about your day as if it were just February 14th.
