The weekend passed I was in a shopping centre and saw some shop girls dressed as elves who looked as grey and downtrodden and exhausted as I imagine the actual toy making elves would if they existed. It really eats at your seasonal cheer to see such glittery festively dressed people looking like they're on their way to chuck themselves off the roof.
Also, "Stop the Cavalry" is a slightly depressing song to play over the internal speakers. I actually like it as a song, but it's not much good for the cheery mood you're trying to aim for as a business.

"Tusser, they tell me, when thou wert alive,
Thou, teaching thrift, thyselfe couldst never thrive.
So, like the whetstone, many men are wont
To sharpen others, when themselves are blunt."

Anyone who has any kind of opinion fucking disgusts me.

Working retail at Christmas is an absolute horror. Ordering christmas stock in June, wearing Christmas jumpers & santa hats from the beginning of December, constant Christmas songs, upselling mince pies to Every. Damn. Customer. I hate this time of year anyway and working in a shop where you're mad busy and having to wear the customer service excellence face is taxing at best. I think I'll convert to Judaism in the new year, then I can use religion as an excuse for my bah humbuggery.

Oh, I don't know. My last 3 murders were very efficient.

I don't hate all Christmases.

I'm starting to hate THIS Christmas.
