It's not the forced smiles or demands for family togetherness and goodwill.
It's not the bullshit marketting.
It's not the lies about families we're all expected to uphold.
It's the fucking morons in the stores that annoy me about christmas.
I had to go get some things to finish up the plunger for my brother... at a craft store. You wouldn't think that that would be too bad. It's the vaguely wandering people with their carts and they kids and their browsing with no regard for who or what is around them. I watched a guy rip down a whole display with his cart, stare at it for a few seconds, and then wander off.
Me being me, I picked it all up and straightened it and rehung the fixture.
He watched me do this.
I glared at him the whole time.
I said "5 minutes to fix what you trashed."
And he just stared at me. Dumb animal eyes. Like he didn't understand the words I was saying.
And maybe he didn't. For all I know I speak a form of english that just isn't compatible with 'rude idiot'
