They don't play background music in our local Co-Op, which is great this time of year. I don't have to listen to the same assortment of dreadful Christmas music played by other shops.

Unfortunately, when I was there today buying stamps (it's bad enough I have to write the cards, let alone pay to send them), this left the field clear for one of the employees to sign his own Christmas melody.

What he sang was "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses (1981). In particular, he sang these two lines:

Merry Christmas; Merry Christmas
But I think I'll miss this one this year.

He sang them incessantly. Just those two lines, to the same music. Well, not quite those lines, as he missed out the word "but".

Let me tell you: when you're in a queue to buy stamps and all you can hear is some shop person relentlessly repeating the same two lines over and over and over and OVER and OVER AND OVER, it can get a little irritating.


Why do they sell cards in boxes of 10 when stamps come in booklets of 12?
