I'm glad I wasn't the only person to think this...it was one of the most depressing job ads I've ever read. Even if the truth really was that Homejoy was so great that employees are willing to work on Christmas there...very, very few people on the outside are going to believe you. And the ones who do give you the benefit of the doubt, they may feel more pity than admiration about your work ethic.

Note/edit: it is possible that none of the employees working at Homejoy tonight celebrate Christmas...but then, that wouldn't be much of a sacrifice then, nor something to really remark for this job ad, any more than if it were just a typical Wednesday/Thursday of a work week.
