    It's 21 days to christmas, I am due to work 18 of these days.

    We are 4 days into constant bullshit Christmas songs and I already am thinking about the kindest way to end my suffering.

    We wouldn't harm animals in this way, why do people think its ok to harm employees by forcing them to listen to this fucking bullshit for 9 hours a day.

    Has anyone got any tips with dealing with it, this should be against the Geneva convention right? This is a form of torture for sure.

    I would shoot myself if I heard that song ONCE!

    You can try filing a recurring customer complaint, usually companies value recurring customers, and they will do whatever it takes to keep them coming back.

    I would take this shit seriously, psychological problems can follow after tortures of that nature. (a related torture in that nature would be Chinese torture)... pretty darn close

    Props to The Killers. Amazing and highly underrated band for all the great stuff they've come out with in the past 12+ years.

    I worked at a very, very large casino for a few years. December was all Bing Crosby and that kind of old-school Christmas shit. The other 11 months was big band music and things between 1940 and 1965. Catering to the almost-dead.

    Give it another few days and it'll drown out. I promise. Worst case, they have to make something that will interrupt the receiver, amirite?

    Shoot people in a stadium. Oh wait, that's something else.

    Wear black trench coat with rifle and just shoot the speakers. Should be OK since you're not shooting people.

    Slightly different environment, but I remember going to a LAN/Gaming Expo for a whole weekend once. Their playlist was fine, but they had a tendency to play Funkytown every half hour or so.



    For the whole. freaking. weekend.

    I hate Funkytown.
