On This Day: National Be Nasty Day

National Be Nasty DayThere have been a lot of mushy, gushy, selfless holidays over the past couple weeks.  March 8th is an opportunity to throw that all aside and celebrate National Be Nasty Day.  Don’t hold the door or help an old lady across the street.  If you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, keep it that way!  Today may be the only day all year that you can get away with it.  Want to tell your boss how you really feel?  Go for it!  On second thought, you may be to refrain from celebrating around your boss.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
