The holiday season is reaching its apex, and while there is plenty of joy and cheer to be had, sometimes it can all be a little taxing. We've all seen (and I'm sure a few of us have had) holiday meltdowns. You know what I'm talking about. Like when the person in front of you at the grocery store completely destroys a teenage checker for not asking for their preferred bag-type. (Paper? Plastic? Or holiday death-wish?) Or when someone starts ramming cars in the Starbucks drive thru in some kind of caffeine depleted rage.
(True story alert!) I was at the post office last week and saw a 75 year old man hurl his post office box keys at the clerk because they wouldn't open his box. And to all a good frigging night! This got me to thinking, a dangerous pastime I know. We need a safe way for people to vent their holiday frustrations before someone goes to prison. This is me paying it forward. Here are the five things I hate the most about the holidays, feel free to create your own lists in the comments. Consider it an open forum to rant about what really ticks you off. And remember: If you don't share, I'll hunt you down and make you eat mistletoe (it's poisonous you know).

1. Crappy Music
Let me preface this by saying that I love holiday music. I'm the guy that has it blasting in October. However, there is just so much wonderful music out there that it befuddles me as to why malls can only play the same 3 awful songs over and over. My most hated? Watch the video and curse me for getting it stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Can someone explain to me how a Beatle churned out that crap? Anywho, hope your holiday IS filled with cheer and awesomeness. Remember to be polite, and always carry pepper spray.
