* There is some kind of state law that all retail places must play Christmas music from Thanksgiving through Christmas. It's psychological.. it's supposed to make you want to buy more by getting you in the Christmas spirit. But an unintended consequence is that it makes the employees want to climb up on a high rise building with a deer rifle. Collateral damage I guess.
* I miss the days when I got Hungry Hungry Hippos for Christmas and all was right with the world. These days you have to get kids laptops.
