If you've ever worked retail, you'll know how stressful it can be at the best of times, let alone during the holiday season. The Monday after Thanksgiving, you have to start dealing with even more angry customers when you don't have a certain item in stock. Not to mention how stressful the mantra "The Customer Is Always Right" can be on a retail employee just trying to survive the holiday shopping season. Long hours, constant berating, and of course the relentless time spent picking up aisles of merchandise customers refused to put in the right place. If you've ever worked retail the day before Thanksgiving, you know exactly what we're talking about.
But perhaps the most painful aspect is listening to the same three Christmas songs on repeat.
They just never end. Basically from Halloween until the first week of January, we're stuck in a perpetual loop of non-stop holiday tunes. It's enough to make you wish Frosty just melted. Whats even worse is a lot of retail stores start Christmas music earlier and earlier each year. Soon we'll be to the point where we'll be listening the Jingle Bells on Labor Day.
Writer and director Edgar Wright, who worked on classics like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, decided to ask the retail workers that follow him which Christmas song makes them go insane, and it's far too real...
There's a pretty clear consensus.
These poor people.
