Superman to cashier: Now remember, I am a paying customer, and the customer is ALWAYS right, right?
Cashier: Uhhhhh, well...
Superman: SHE (nodding to me) thinks that it's too early, but I say September is definitely NOT too early to get the Christmas music out. What do YOU think?
Cashier: (looking frantically from him to me and back to him) Ummmm, I think maybe you could get it out in October? Or wait (seeing my distasteful expression) maybe the day AFTER Halloween? That wouldn't be too early.
Superman: Oh man! You know what? (turning to me like a kid who just lost a fight) If you just let me deck the house out for Halloween then I promise I'll wait a little while on the Christmas music. But YOU KNOW how much I like my Christmas music.
I consider this a compromise. He does like to get the Christmas music out early. Normally I don't mind that. I love Christmas music. So usually some time in October he will get it all out. The thing that bugs me a little bit about this is that I want to really enjoy it for the duration of the season. And by the "duration of the season" I mean that I like to listen to it after Christmas and into January a little bit. We still have lots of snow on the ground, it still looks and feels Christmasy. He's ready to put it away the day after Christmas. BUT, THAT'S BECAUSE HE PULLS THE MUSIC OUT SOOOOO EARLY. This year he wanted to start listening on September first. Nooooo way. So this is what he got instead.
I don't usually go for the creepy but this wasn't so bad. It might even be kind of fun.
