    Last year, I was at a local bike and ski shop trying to buy some gifts for family members, and the music switched from some non-descript pop music to Christmas carols. I wasn't the only shopper who had a sudden "WTF?" reaction, and it must have caught the attention of one of the workers. He said "You don't like the carols?" I said,"no, I've had it with carols!" He said "Oh, could you possibly say something to our manager? He seems to think playing this music will encourage buyers, but most of us hate it."

    "Sure!", I said, and I mentioned it to the person pointed out as the manager, and within a minute or two, it was back to the pop music... and a bunch of grinning employees and customers.

    Another freekin' Christmas miracle ;-)

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
