A Bit Of Not-christmas Cheer.

I used to work as a pizza delivery driver. Every year I had to deal with more, "merry christmases," than anyone should have to get in a lifetime. "Merry christmas," is not a substitute for a tip that will help replace the tires that get worn out from delivering. I don't like christmas, and I never have.

Rather than a, "merry christmas," or a, "happy holidays," I would simply tell people to have a nice day. One christmas eve, I made a delivery and told the fellow to have a nice night. As I turned to leave the store, he said, "hang on! I want you to have this. Thank you for not cramming jesus-y christmas crap down my throat." He gave me a twenty.
