    WWMD: Coworker is listening to Xmas music at high volume

    I fucking hate Christmas music, plus can we at least get through one goddamn holiday before moving on to the next one? WWMD?

    1) play Slayer and/or Rage Against the Machine at even louder volume?

    2) dog shit under his door handles?

    3) declare that it is a hostile work environment and walk out?

    4) ???

    Ask him/her to turn it down/off because you can't focus on work?

    Male, older, married. Nothing against him but he may be the most thoroughly unremarkable person I have ever met.

    Well, I wasn't actually planning on doing any work today.

    Dog shit on the play button?
    "One season per year, the gods open the skies, and releases a white, fluffy, pillow on top of the most forbidding mountain landscapes, allowing people to travel over them with ease and relative abandonment of concern for safety. It's incredible."

    It could be worse. I once had an incident where I had to put the kabash on Rush Limbaugh at decent volume, right next to me.

    Mrs acinpdx listens to a commercial-free “we play everything“ station, and they started playing holiday music exclusively two weeks ago. She has abandoned them until New Years.

    I had this too, but it was the owner of the company. He would come down in the afternoons, declare he missed being a designer, and start working on jobs. The rest of the designers wouldn’t say anything about Limbaugh, or about him being a shitty designer. I had to pull him aside and let him know that when he came to visit not only did nothing get done, but we spent the next two hours re-doing the work.

    Eventually he learned to stay upstairs in his office, but then he would call me up and tell me what Rush talked about that day....”I tell you man..... this guys Ideas are gonna change the world!”

    Maybe you should take that direction. Go lean on his desk and start telling him some kooky ideas..... maybe after a week or so out your hand on his knee.

    I'd go with Arabic music.

    Mrs Goat likes xmas music. I don't, but I found some I like so that's what gets played. Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris, and Ricky Scaggs all have good xmas records. Laurie Lewis' "Winter's Grace" is kind of a xmas record. If you like death metal that stuff might not appeal.

    Crank the "Mutated Christmas" CD. If coworker complains, go on a rant about your religious freedoms.
