I am already sick of the "holiday spirit"!
All day at work the satellite stations are playing Christmas music... and the gaudy decorations and wish lists and people being too cheap to tip when they go out because they are saving up to buy their spoiled children the things that they "need" . I mean, a guy got trampled to death on black Friday http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/29/business/29walmart.html?_r=1&scp=5&sq=black%20friday&st=cse for Christ's sake!! I think people have forgotten the meaning of whatever it is they're celebrating.

Don't bother flaming me, I got enough of that from my mother.

Do you think people have forgotten the meaning of the Holiday Spirit?

^Edited from Christmas to Holiday Spirit seeing as how we're all guilty

I blame businesses for ruining the real holiday spirit.
To them, holidays are just a time of the year where they make even more money, so they try to release things around that time of the year so people are willing to pay high prices for things they probably won't need.

Plus, I stopped celebrating Christmas a long time ago. It's just another day to me.
I'm lucky I haven't heard any of the holiday spirit yet around where I live. Otherwise I would've went insane.

You're just living in a wrong place and coming in a wrong moment.



I'm still cute though, 24/7.

Well I hope you make it back soon, karaoke isn't the same without you. We miss you!! And thank god you lived through Black Friday... That shit makes me sick. People get killed every year on that day because they have to have the latest "thing". First it was Cabbage Patch Kids, then Tickle Me Elmo, then Furby... I heard about a guy who was trying to buy a (PS3??? Wii???) who was mortally injured in the checkout line and actually bled to death as he desperately handed the cashier his credit card. It makes me physically ill. Saving "$50 on the latest gadget" is apparently worth your life these days. Fuck that shit. Seriously, it's fucking sick.

Good. Jail is where people like that belong. Why would you bite someone over a tv? That's insane!! Americans are so greedy! It's just a THING! An OBJECT! I don't understand what could be going through someone's mind when they want something so badly they would fight someone for it. They are not starving to death and the tv is not food.

Blame Advertisers. And parents for spoiling their kids. And TV. And everything else.

Let's face it. Not everyone is going to have the Christmas Spirit.

It's mostly just this year. The economy is bad--and people just are really short on money. It's been so hard to get into the Christmas spirit this year with everyone being so grouchy.

Yeah--I watched that on the news about the Black Friday thing. And I watched 3 people steal stuff at each store I went into One teenage girl got hurt by a granny over a freakin vacuum at Wal-Mart. Some other girl stole stuff at Target. One stole stuff at another store and me and the cashier watched her just stuff crap in her pockets and the cashier didn't do anything about it. That gets me all messed up and out of the spirit.

I mean, I work my butt off for petty cash and I still will not steal--no matter how much I want to get someone something--if I can't afford it--they ain't gettin' it. They can have it after the holidays--when it goes on REAL sale. Not wen they make the prices higher and then "lower" them.

I mean seriously......It's not THAT great of a freakin' sale. "OH NO THEY ONLY HAVE ONE LEFT!!" they always have more. Its in the back. And guess what? the next day...they will have MOREEEE.

but people need to get into the Spirit. I'm getting tired of all these grouchy people....

Yeah just yesterday there was a lady running out the door she had stolen another womans purse, the woman who stole it was very well dressed, she didn't look like she needed the money, well we caught her and called the cops and all she kept saying was "what about my children, I have two kids at home" I didn't feel simpathedic for her because she should have thought about the consquences befor she tryed to steal, I mean just look at all the things that have come out to help mothers in need and its people like her that make it difficult for people who really need it and working hard to survive to get the assistance. I mean if you ever went to a welfair office or go to section 8 houseing they really look at you like your eather a drug dealer or on drugs, it sucks trust me
