Enough with the holiday email blasts!

I’ve had it up to my spam filter with bright holiday graphics telling me to have a great holiday. I appreciate the sentiment and I’m an ordinarily cheery holiday person, not at all a bah humbug type. But do I really need 50-75 emails from companies wishing me a joyful holiday. I’d even take this to the next level, even if you’re a person, rather than a corporate entity, you’re not making a good impression by sending an impersonal greeting, especially at this time of year. The only people who get a pass on that type of group greeting are the ones looking out for a holiday tip from their hundreds of customers, like the paper boy (girl, man, woman). Okay, that said, I can go back to deleting all the holiday greetings from this morning. Only 4 more days to go and then we can start the gratuitous happy new year wishes.

Have a wonderful holiday.
