Monday 23rd December, 2013
This time of year I receive too many round robin season greetings. Such as the following:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Please accept my sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
May the holidays be joyful into and resplendent for you, your families and loved ones.
I hate these. What would be my best reply?
From Robin Redbreast and Terrance the Turkey.
Reply simply thus;
Lovely to hear from you my dear friend and/or colleague (please delete as appropriate)
I look forward to presents that you, your family and loved ones will send to me.
You already have my email and my home address is xxx-xxx.
You will either cause high offense (and then never hear from them again); or receive unexpected gifts.
Merry Christmas you lovely s*ds.
Today’s post is bought to you by the word ‘festive’, cos it is.
