Merry Season

What the bloody hell is wrong with everybody?

Seems no matter what good wishes you issue somebody wants to take offense.

So listen up.   If somebody says "Merry Christmas" to you and you, like me, aren't Christian don't get your knickers in a knot.  Why take offense when none is meant?

And if some store employee wishes you a "happy holiday" there's no need to bark at him that it's Christmas and he can bloody well say "Merry Christmas" because, in fact, he can't - because there's some other imbecile just like you on the other side of the issue that will bark at him if he does.
