Q: WHAT IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS?
Follow-up: What are the best and worst gifts you have received?
PIXIE GEESAMAN | Retired Marketer | Monterey
A: The Christmas ads that start before Halloween. I can take them before Thanksgiving, but before Halloween is too soon. That’s going way too far.
Bathroom Don’t: A crocheted toilet paper roll cover in purple. The best was a sterling silver pony-tail clip with my name on it.
JIMMY ROSS | Electrician | San Jose
A: Shopping. And that’s coming from a man because I know that girls love jewelry.
Misfit: The worst was a shirt that was actually too big for me—like three times too big. And the best was my computer.
RAYAN ALI | Retail Associate | Marina
A: I work at Macy’s, so for me it’s getting to work early during the holidays—sometimes at 6am! Then sometimes we have to stay to close at midnight. And dealing with the number of people coming in to shop.
Finicky Fashionista: The worst: an ugly jean purse. The best: this purse right here, from Coach.
