Although Nick is not an anti-Semite, he gets mad every year because of a certain Jewish holiday. Why?

Does he get mad because the holiday inconveniences him in any way?

Would it help to find out more about his job? family? hobbies? religion? ethnicity? daily routine?

Does this happen in the 21st century? If not, [LTPF list of centuries] please.
Does this happen in the US? If not, [LTPF list of continents] please.

Does he work in the restaurant business? In agriculture? In retail, of some sort? Does he work in a grocery store? A bakery?

Does his business have a sizable Jewish clientele? Does he dislike Passover, because Jewish customers buy less of his products?

Matzo relevant? Seders?

Is there some sort of hassle involved in providing Passover goods to his Jewish customers?

Does Passover irritate him because it will cost him money? Because it means extra work?

all leavened products need to be *burned*? O_O I did not know that...would making sure they were all eaten before Passover satisfy the rules? Yes, because then you wouldn't have any to burn... But there is a legal fiction where your rabbi can "sell" your leavened products to a non-Jew for the duration of the holiday, and since you don't technically own the food, you don't have to burn it.

Is there some sort of hassle involved in providing Passover goods to his Jewish customers? Yes, but there's more to it than that.

Does Passover irritate him because it will cost him money? No Because it means extra work? Yes

Is he mad because he is responsible for stocking shelves in a grocery and he has to remove and restock shelves before Passover (to accommodate items like matzoh) and then after Passover has to restore shelves to the way were?

BTW - You missed my questions on Oct. 15. I won't hold it against you. If they're no longer relevant, forget it. If still relevant, please answer. Thanks

****SPOILER***
Nick works at a supermarket, and they have to completely change their layout for Passover to put the kosher for Passover food in one section. This is very tiring to restock everything and to memorize the new format just for a few weeks. Good job everyone.
