Yesterday I was in a shop and the voice on its self-service checkouts had been changed to be Christmassy. E.g. if you had an unexpected "gift" (no longer just "item") in the bagging area, instead of telling you to wait for assistance, it would say "I am sending one of my elves to assist," and whenever there was a moment when the voice normally doesn't have anything to say, it filled the gap by singing jingle bells. I don't know how long this had been going on, it could have been the first day or it could have been all week for all I know, but people were already fed up with it. So bollocks to anyone who seriously thinks Christmas has been banned in this country!
A strong and stable forum in the national interest.
