I thought it would be fun to lighten things up a little bit today with a holiday post. But of course we’ll still be complaining…
I just have one question for you today. Is there anything you don’t like about the Christmas holiday season?
For instance, even though this is my favorite time of the year, there are still a few things that drive me crazy during the holidays.
- The people who have tacky lighting displays up and those who keep their lights up through March of the next year.
- Hearing the song “The Christmas Shoes” over and over on the radio. It is not a Christmas carol and doesn’t do anything except depress people. I mean, who wants to think about someone’s mother dying on Christmas?
- Form letter Christmas cards. There is one funny one that I look forward to every year. But normally the rest are lame and not very well written.
The epitome of the holiday season this year for me – the jerk I ran into in the store the other day. I was doing some shopping for a charity I’m helping out. In this case, they gave me money to spend on toys for kids of certain ages. I went to the store and filled up the cart with gifts. As I’m walking around the store, this guy walks by and says, “Don’t you think you have enough for your kid?” Although I could have gotten upset or told him to mind his own business, I simply said, “It’s all for charity, so don’t you feel like a jerk now.” And then I walked away.
