"On the day before Christmas" - A Temp Diaries Christmas Carol

'Tis the season

It's the holiday season. And no one is more interested in celebrating this time of year than me, your humble host, Temp X. While some people hate my musical numbers (although not as much as they hate my drunken Twitter posts of Glee), I can't help myself.  Every time I go to the 99 Cent Store to blow my pittance of a paycheck, I get swept up in the Musak-inspired Christmas carols they blast from the COBY CD/cassette player behind Register #2.

So it is with this, I decided to write my own tune.  It's to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas. And I'd like to dedicate it to every soulless executive in this town. Or put more simply, every executive in this town.

Enjoy.

my asshole boss gave to me
A bonus check for a dollar fifty.
