The best part of the article, though, is a comment left by someone named HeaveSteve 2015. Here's how he once dealt with obnoxious Christmas songs:
There are music services stores can subscribe to that mix regular canned music with the odd holiday tune, but sadly, my old store always went whole hog with the Xmas schlock. My most hated: The Chipmunk song. After a few years of torture, I discovered a way to create the silence. I would use one of the store's portable phones (this was at Home Depot), activate the paging system, and hide the phone. We'd get several hour of bliss, until a manager found it and turned the tunes back on.Hats off to you, HeaveSteve. That's sheer genius!
