    i hate christmas

    i really do..

    id rather my family buy me no presents in exchange i buy them no presents then we're all equal

    i've just gone through hell. Hours and hours of queuing to buy stuff behind slow old people, single mummies and their screaming little welfare cheque.



    I bought a chocolate gift set from thorntons.. the girl asked me if i wanted it gift wrapped for 2 quid. i said yeah why not.
    She took 15 minutes doing it

    Romanian big issue sellers out in force. taking advantage of clueless bleeding heart Brits emptying their wallets.. before no doubt being picked up in a silver Mercedes and taken back to their accommodation

    Christmas is what you make of it, buying into the commercial gift scam isn't my thing either, except for the kids of course, but the party atmosphere can be fun.
    Now please excuse me why I tell these annoying carol singers to fuck off and never darken my doorstep again!
    It wasn't me!

    It was my birthday yesterday, which I'm also bored of. I got three cards, one had £70 in it and the other had £30. The 70 was in Scottish pounds

    This is the load of rubbish masquerading as Christmas night tv in England this year. Kinda dismal really

    Sales of ‘any old shit’ expected to treble as men start Christmas shopping



    The purchase of gifts using no thought or imagination is expected to increase significantly as High Street retailers brace themselves for a stampede of panicked men who have suddenly realised it’s Christmas.

    Exasperated men staring blankly at kitchen appliances are a common sight at this time of year and with figures suggesting that 80% of men leave their Christmas shopping until the very last minute, retailers are predicting bumper sales of all the crap they can’t normally shift.

    “Checkout queues at this time of year are predominantly made up of men carrying an array of monstrosities that are likely to leave their wives or girlfriends massively disappointed,” revealed Stephen Robertson of the British Retail Consortium.

    “Retailers will be hoping that a combination of heavy discounts and absolute desperation could lead to a late surge in sales that will surpass previous years.

    “Piling up all the items that make women angry, and placing them in a section called ‘Gifts She’ll Love’ is proving to be a hugely successful marketing strategy,” he added.

    32 year old Gavin Henderson was one of millions of men heading towards the High Street to buy lots of anything that’s still left.

    “Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit,” he told us.

    “Which of these do you think she’ll prefer – The Bumper Book of Chuck Norris Facts, a Tyson Fury calendar or Jeremy Clarkson Catapults a Nissan Micra Into a Quarry 4?

    “Sod it! It’s Christmas. I’ll get her all three.”

    I've just spent two hours wrapping presents and i've run out off wrapping paper.

    Time to crack on with the sherry and mince pies now the debauchery of the Christmas parties is over.

    So far this xmas i havenít heard Fairytale of New York yet. It must be a record.

    (Boom Boom!)

    Not only that, but I havenít heard Wham, Cliff Richard or Band Aid either.

    Band Aid. Do they know itís Christmas? Of course not, Bono, you fucking twit. Theyíre Muslims. Why the fuck should they know itís Christmas? There wonít be snow in Africa this Christmas. Well actually, there will, on the top of every mountain. In fact you can go skiing in South Africa, Morocco, Lesotho and Algeria.

    Anyway I would like to wish fellow members a mad Christmas and a preposterous New Year..... this offer is for one week only, terms and conditions apply, not all applicants will necessarily be approved.....
