Seasonal Permission

Note to retailers: I must say I admire your restraint since my last admonishment. You waited until a good 3 weeks into October until you actually began running Christmas ads on television and, bless your hearts, you actually waited until 2 weeks into November before giving into the temptation to play that fucking Slade Christmas song on continuous loop throughout the business day, making both full and part time staff beg for a quick and merciful death. But I have now, myownself, put up a Christmas tree, so, you know, go nuts.

You now have my permission to hit me right between the eyes with as much Christmas propaganda as your greedy little hearts desire.
