Halloween is over, Whole Foods has brought out the bags with red writing… you know what this means: the holiday season has begun. Again. Earlier than last year. With everyone being uber-PC and recognizing that not all celebrate Christmas, the big dilemma is what types of gifts they should give to their co-workers. With that I bring to you the following conversation because, well, I can’t not share this one.
Girl 1: I need a non-offensive Christmas gift for my coworkers. Like, you know, for people who aren’t Christian and don’t celebrate Christmas. I want to give everyone the same thing.
Girl 2: What about baking? You can’t go wrong with–
Girl 1 interrupts: I need a holiday theme. Like a snowflake. Wait, would angels be offensive?
Me (under my breath): Oh my god…
Girl 2: Yeah, angels probably aren’t a good idea. Those are like really religious.
Girl 1: So what do I do?
Girl 2: Maybe just stick with a winter theme. Snowmen, sledding, hot chocolate, gingerbread mean… you know… that kind of thing.
Girl 1: Thanks, sweetie. That’s a great idea. I’m thinking ornaments.
Me (practically crying in the corner): Ornaments. For their non-existent Christmas trees? Oh. My. God.
There you have it. All I can say is, I think she must work at McDonald’s.
