Title: How do you handle "Happy Holidays' when you prefer "Merry Christmas?"

I work every year doing telephone order entry and answer calls from all over the nation. We are supposed to say, "Happy Holidays," but many make a point to subvert this by pointedly answering or wishing "Merry Christmas."

And they do it in a way that makes it plain they don't much like the PCness of Happy Holidays.

How do you deal with a clerk, salesman or someone taking orders who use the PC when you want it like you feel it or believe it?

Just curious. I have to go get back on the phones, but I would find it interesting to check out the group think here on this.

Happy Holidays folks. ;-)

I'm going for a clear cut. The woodsmoke generated from the slash will hopefully increase winter temperatures.

You mean a complete stranger ? Someone with whom I will interact for about 20 seconds out of an otherwise very busy day ?

I couldn't care less ... my enjoyment of Christmas has absolutely nothing to with who says (or doesn't say) Merry Christmas to me, especially random members of the public.

IT's you job to answer these phones? So why not simply answer them the same way you do any other day or month of the year - Hello, such and such business, Ferret speaking, how may I help you?

I was listening to Dr Laura the other day and the caller wished her a Happy Hanuka and she replied with Merry Christmas. It was no big deal. On the other hand, it's not always about being Politically correct. Sometimes, it's about respecting the rights of others. You prefer Merry Christmas, as do I, but others, who do not celebrate Christmas, fell no nees to say Merry Christmas not do they care if you say it or not. So, if you want to say Merry Christmas - then say Merry Christmas, but do not expect to hear Merry Christmas from those who do not celebrate it.

Happy Birthday Jesus! Merry Christmas everyone!

Back in the 80's I was working in a woodshop. We got an order for the city of Dayton to build bus stop benches out of the wood. That is some very hard wood. We went through a lot of blades. I always thought it would be fun to make a dining room table out of it.

Good idea - unload that carpet. If it's been in the breakfast area, it's probably teeming with tiny creatures anyway. Hardwood is cleaner and elegant. The "floater" systems seem to be big these days.

Well golly gee, let me think about this one a minute. Do I quickly return a complete stranger's heartfelt greeting during the holiday season, or do I kidnap them off the street and engage them in an agonized, no-holds-barred 4 hour formal debate over two words, not allowing them to leave or to take a potty break until the debatin's done?

Thinking about this ... still thinking ... still thinking ... dang, I'll have to get back to you on this one.

LL Bean used it as part of their training tapes a few years back. The next year they started having a Merry Christmas catalogue.

I walked out of a local restuant a year ago when the greeter said "Happy holidays come this way please." I said, "no thanks, it is CHRISTmas and if you're not smart enough to know that, your cook aint smart enough to feed me." And we, four of us, left.

I do the same thing at Easter.

Sometimes I get old folks in a nursing home and will work with them a long time to get orders to immediate family in. Even if it destroys my average call time and is frustrating. I will help them too with what pricing breaks I can give them, even if I am stretching policy.

I look at it this way; it might be the last time their adult and graying kids will ever get a basket or box of pears from them and I will fully humor them.

Even if I have to pretend I am actually a Christian to a degree to not shake their envelope of comfort.

What I find interesting is the intensity some will answer my "Have a Happy Holiday salutation with a very pointed "Merry Christmas."

I'll return it, as the Yule season puts my holiday close to their Dec 25, and the point of the holiday is to foster humanity and understanding.

It is an interesting three week seasonal job that gives me insight into human behavior and I like it.

I also have noticed an increase in Hispanic customers in recent years, and actually enjoy the orders from the conservative South easterners and know how to humor them as not to rock the boat the way their knowing I am an anarchist from U.S. occupied Cascadia would tend to do.

We have two big call centers in Oregon ans one big one in Ohio. I could get on full time in Hopewell, Ohio or Medford, Oregon if I could stand it year round. But that would spoil my fun as at the end of December I am ready to be laid off and have other jobs to do seasonally after this one anyway.

It pays very well though I must say, and December is never a skinny month for me.

In winter, I kill at least one tree every day, I limb it, buck it up, and then split it.

Then I burn it.

I kill more in the summer, which I make into boards and slabs. I even have other people killing trees for me in the summer, then they bring them to me and I turn them into boards which we then split 50/50.

I LOVE trees, and I love my chainsaws and mill.

Merry CHRISTmas.

Purple heart is an awesome wood. It turns a wonderful grey when exposed outside such as in deck applications.

You need carbides to work it. It is not as tough as teak, but almost.

It's cheaper than teak esp in the laminated systems such as Pergo et. al.

It stays that kewl purple when finished correctly, (which ALL decent laminated systems do), and used inside.
