Occasionally I find myself thinking that how I spend my time is exceptionally strange. Then I come across things like seatsandchairs's flickr gallery and I'm able to remind myself that strange is very very common. It's all about perspective.

Actually on topic: when I was a kid I'd put my feet up on teh back edge of the armrest in front. I don't do it anymore, but the urge to is still there since I'm much more comfortable sitting curled up then sitting like a normal person.

I put my feet on the bar. ALL the time. But my feet dangle in every chair I ever sit in, so....

I got scolded for telling someone Merry Christmas. They started ranting about assuming everyone is Christian and blah blah and how they were Jewish and why would I think they weren't Jewish.

I just looked at them and said, "you're buying Santa wrapping paper".

I tend to default to Merry Christmas out of habit. Most people don't get offended...

Wish people Merry Christmas, they get offended if they're not Christian.

Wish people Happy Holidays, they get offended if they are Christian.

Or you could be me, and just avoid unnecessary interaction at any cost.

I also put my feet on the bar. Really, I don't think anyone touches it, especially the lower bars where I put my feet. It's not a handrail. It's a backstop for people's wheelchairs.

I'm not Christian and I don't get offended when someone says that to me. But I'm not everyone who isn't Christian, Catholic, etc. Hahaha. Here where I live, everyone who works for a Wal-Mart, Cub Foods, K-Mart, Super Target, etc are taught to stictly use 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas'.

Yeah, I'm not Christian (I'm Wiccan, so officially I observe Yule, which Xmas largely ripped off anyway) and pretty well just celebrate the secular portion of Xmas with my family (yannow, gifts and big feast- but I don't come from a religious family anyway so we never had any religious practices around Xmas), and I don't get offended if someone says Merry Christmas to me unless it's accompanied by them trying to shove a pamphlet of something at me. Unless someone's blatantly displaying a non-Christian religious item I assume they're in the majority religion/celebrated holidays category. At work I'll just say "thanks, you too" if someone says Merry Christmas to me.

I have a serious peeve when people put their feet up in theaters. They're gross and dirty enough without you wiping your filthy shoes all over the place.
I always put my feet up in theaters.

Unstoppable.

It is possible that we may go to a movie together someday. If we ever do, out of respect for you, I will not put my feet up.

I try. But I'm a cashier so... They all talk to me. Or ignore me and talk on their phones.
But I free for the next 23.5 hours and I'm going to Meghan's after I change the litter box and we're going To have dinner and cuddles. (And only cuddles because my body chose today to inform me that I am not pregnant. A fact I already knew because you know, I don't sleep with men.

Call me selfish, but I'm still kinda bummed that no one but my mom and dad are coming to see Nutcracker. My cousins are going to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra instead, and not even my best friends are coming, because one isn't willing to spend $15, one....I just don't know, another just can't come, and the last has her fall show this weekend.
Speaking of the one will her fall show, it's getting a tad bit annoying and kind of really obnoxious how she's making such a huge deal out of it. She's asked us like every day if we're coming or not, and apparently she was going around asking everyone at school if they would come.
It's not even a huge production, it's just a collection of pieces from other plays.

I just wished people Happy Holidays because I don't really follow a specific religious practice and it's my habit to say that. I am not offended by Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, it's just what I default at.

When I worked as a cashier people thought corporate told us not to say Christmas and I'd play along so they wouldn't end up questioning me personally.

If you don't want to have a 'Happy Holiday' then fine, I'll take it back. Have a shitty winter full of digging your car out from piles of snow.

That's understandable though. You're excited about a huge performance and something that's really important to you but the people you expected to be supportive seem to be flaking off on you. It's just a disappointing feeling and that's okay to feel.

I'm not even religious at all. I just say Christmas out of habit.
But people get offended over the silliest things.
