Hal started frantically pushing the buttons on the car’s radio. “I can’t take anymore of this shit,” he shouted.
“Calm down, buddy, and focus on driving,” Hal’s friend, Ralph, said. “Man, you really woke up on the wrong side of the bed, didn’t you? What’s eating you?”
“What’s eating me? I’m sick and tired of all Christmas music all the time on just about every radio station,” Hal said. “It’s pretty much been going on since Halloween.”
“Seriously?” Hal said. “For how many other holidays do we start celebrating two months in advance? The duration of these awful Christmas songs playing on the radio is almost interminable.”
“I told you,” Hal said. “Christmas music goes on way too long. I’m not saying we should stamp out all Christmas music. I just think that they should use some discretion and wait until no earlier than two weeks before Christmas Day.”
“Yeah, good luck with that buddy,” Ralph said. “This is America and we’re a Christian nation.”
“Yeah, I keep hearing that crap from our asshole president,” Hal said as he pulled the car into the tavern’s parking lot. “But I swear to God, Ralph, if they’re playing Christmas songs on the jukebox, I’m outta here.”
