Title: Christmas.........already? Posted: October 15, 2006 (10:18 PM)
It's still two months away, but I am already having to prepare for the holidays. Nothing sucks out the enjoyment of Christmas like working in retail. It gives you an entirely new perspective on things. You can sit there and say that Christmas is too commercial, but until you've worked in retail, you don't know the extent of it. What gets me the most are the kids crying, screaming, and throwing devastating tantrums because they want something. Then the parent says, "Wait and maybe Santa Claus will get it for you." Seriously? You're going to reward that?
You know what I want for Christmas? Nothing. All I care about is using my time off to go see all of my family and friends. I don't want presents, and I don't want to buy presents. I wonder how "no gifts" would go over with the family?
Haha, yeah good luck with the "no Christmas Presents" thing. I tried it last year. Mum asked what i wanted and i told her. A $10 mascara. But she kept bugging me saying it wasn't enough. So now i have a brand new, almost 1 yr old, sewing machine sitting in the corner of my room, which has never been used and likely never will be. Oh well, that's what you get for being raised in a materialistic society. People don't understand how to tell you they care other than "Here, have this shit" =)
