3. I work retail,
try having it played for 10 to 12 hours a day. By the end of my shift I'm so ready to get the gun. Plus I have to play nice with all the crazy customers! I getting to the point that I just hate the whole season!

4. It actually makes me want to blow other people's brains out.

Specifically, the sadistic motherfuckers who recorded the crap.

9.  I have walked out of stores because I could not stand it anymore
If only retailers realized that this turns people off! Maybe a week or two before Christmas, but around here
they were starting well before Thanksgiving.

:banghead:

11. Same here
Or it makes me wanna get on a crowded bus and kill everybody. I *loathe* that shit. :nuke:

And the crappy thing about it is that it's pervasive, almost subliminal. I went to the grocery store without my iPod last week, and I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

14. I hope it depends on the song
because I am going to be playing Christmas music live in front of Wal-mart in a few hours.

Some of it is the over-kill I think. "It's beginning to look alot like Christmas" is okay the first two times you hear it, but after the tenth time in a week it is way too much. The worst thing is the ear-worms. Three hours later I will be singing "jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock...." :argh: :banghead: I despise that song, but it is harder to get it out of your head than it is to get gum out of your hair.
