Christmas Music Driving You Mad?

Why you mad bro?

Is it because you work retail and you have to listen to the constant loop of Christmas music (or Muzak) at your store and you feel like you are going insane?  Welp...that might actually be happening. 

Via Business Insider:
According to clinical psychologist Linda Blair, relentless festive tunes can be mentally draining. 
"People working in the shops at Christmas have to [tune out] Christmas music, because if they don't, it really does stop you from being able to focus on anything else," Blair told Sky News. "You're simply spending all of your energy trying not to hear what you're hearing."
First....sorry if you hate it.  But for the rest of us?  It gets us in the spirit.  And, retailers are trying to drive the 'spirit of the season' moving all of us to spend, spend, spend, right?
