What if you thought you were so snarky in your Christmas newsletter and joked about it's lovely (non)Christmas paper and it's lovely (non)Christmas stamp because you bought the paper in JUNE and meant to send it out six months ago as an address change letter? What if you did that and then you ran out of the funky artsy stamps you had planned to use? What if you ran out of the stamps and then the only ones you could find (without having to go to the post office) were Santa stamps?
How much of a retard would you look like then?
Also? I feel really, really sorry for the Salvation Army dude who has to stand there, ringing that STUPID bell, all frickin day. Seriously. I can NOT be the only one who tries to avoid eye contact while walking by. I mean, honestly? As charitable as I may feel, I'm still cheap. And donations are only deductible if you get a receipt.
