Bah Humbug Gets Earlier Every Year

| Working | December 21, 2015

(The grocery store that I go to puts up its Christmas decorations (and all holiday decorations) even EARLIER than most, as it’s the pilot store. This means that it is the store that tries out all sorts of decoration configurations and ways to promote holiday products, to see what is most successful. I know that they get a lot of bad comments about their Christmas decorations; they even put up signs saying, “Don’t worry, we know it’s still Halloween…” explaining the situation. So, I decide to give them some kind words.)

Me: *to store associate* “You probably get a lot of flack for your Christmas decorations, so I’ll just say, I whole-heartedly approve. It looks great!”

Store Associate: “Well, good. I hate Christmas.”
