Not just annoying, just the worst song....

 

My candidate....

Unfortunately my partner loves that Dominic the Christmas Donkey one so I hear that more than the Grandma one.

I vaguely remember seeing some kind of TV special decades ago that introduced "Little Drummer Boy" and thinking it clashed with everything I had always known and accepted about the Christmas story. You can't just go creating new characters and narratives, can you?  Apparently...yes.

 

I'm sorry, but to this day that "bah-rumpa-bum-bump" song gives me the creeps.

 

I have issues with "Holly Jolly Christmas", too.  But that's a story for another time.

Either Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer or Dominick the Donkey. I'm not sure which is worst. The only thing that the Grandma song has going for it is that it was written as a parody. Dominick doesn't even have that.

 

Both my parents had issues with the Little Drummer Boy--for the same reasons as @Colleen Hendersondoes. My father had issues with Blue Christmas, but that was because he just didn't like Elvis. 

 

Another candidate is the one about the little boy buying red shoes for his dying mother on Christmas eve (Christmas shoes? Can't remember the title.) It's just plain sad on an occasion that should bre joyous.

I am going to vote for the Little Drummer Boy. It also creeps me out. Mainly because quite a few years ago (80's maybe) some clothing manufacturer used it in a commercial to sell womens jeans. Definitely not in the spirit of good taste!

This was popular when I was a kid.  It sucked then, and it sucks now:  "All I want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth."  Spike Jones and the City Slickers did the first recording of it.

LOL.  When I was a kid, there was an even worse variation of it, to the same tune, called "All I want for Christmas is a Beatle."  Click at your own risk... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ozoaBftyjI

I agree "Grandma got run over..." is one of the top five in my book, but then there's Alvin and the Chipmunks "Christmas don't be late"... Also "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus" and for some reason "Silver Bells" songs just irritates me. I'd have to say "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" beats "Dominic the donkey," I guess I wasn't tortured enough with it. But much rather listen to Dominic the Donkey, over Alvin and the Chipmunks.... Anything is better.😑

I'd forgotten about Alvin and the Chipmunks. I think it may be due to psychological blocking it out. They sound like fingernails on a chalkboard or worse. I swear they qualify as torture no matter what they sing.

My wife despises "Little Drummer Boy" - I was okay with it until I heard versions by Johnny Cash AND Bob Dylan. Ouch.

That was hysterical Colleen.

A different definition of a roast, but well deserved!

Yeah, I forgot them too, until a teacher attempt to pick it for a movie to show a subclass for a bunch of middle school children. Had a brief PTSD moment. My ears are very sensitive. Luckily the children chose wisely and wanted to watch, Monsters Inc. Felt like I dodge a bullet, thought briefly about taking an unexpected leave of absence.

 

"Little drummer boy" is creepy, sounds like a death march, but I can at least listen to the full song without wishing for any and all Divine entities to show mercy upon my miserable soul by removing me from the material plane where them Chipmunks be singing.

Amen. I can well believe both the PTSD moment and I agree about the Little Drummer Boy. IMHO, that teacher should be tried for child abuse for even suggesting the Chipmunks. 🤣

Another candidate might be It's a Marshmallow World by Dean Martin. It's juet cringe-worthy.

IMHO the teacher would probably be fine with it and say they were doing their job perfectly. I think it was just a poor decision, cuz they were thinking about revenge but no thought for the only help in the room, who's now internally screaming.

The school we were working for, had difficult subjects(Children). The student had zero discipline, nightmare levels of why, but it's not all their fault, cuz school admin was to busy dodging disgruntled parents. Honestly, those children on average thought being in school is the equivalent of torture, but they're still learning.

Never heard that one. A new one for the cringe pile.

      So, if there was no penis to see.... How exactly did the girl think she saw a naked male? Size of shoulders? Bone structure?  And without seeing genitals, how did she know this individual was naked in the first place?  Or am I a little bit dense?

      Hello, sorry that I have been away for awhile but life sometimes has a way of getting interesting. So I have been seeing someone for the past 4 months now. We have been having a wonderful time together and I almost feel like my past life was a dream. Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family went very well. I feel so much like this is the life that I should have always had. I am totally out as Rachel and though I am not passing being fearless has led to meeting many new and wonderful people that accept me.    I have been surprised that I am also now being seen as the person that I had always wanted to be. Several times over the past 2 month people have  complimented me for being brave, generous, kind, loving, honest and open. Honestly when I started my transition these are the characteristics that I had written down describing the person that I wanted Rachel to be. The one that I was not planning on was brave but apparently that is how I am seen. My transition has truly been a transformative experience.   I hope that it is ok if I share a couple pictures of myself.... one from work and one from home.   Well, I have a lot of reading to do in order to catch up.. Hope everyone is doing well!

      Hi Ivy,     It was a different time back 50's, 60's, and even 70's. Trans definitely wasn't a thing back then. Female impersonators, now that was the term. Now that I look back, my parents knew my tendencies, and I remember one conversation they had with me once about a supposed friend of my dad. There was a club near us for a while that had Female Impersonator shows and they told me about how his friend had a son who performed there and they were so proud of him.    I was oblivious at the time, but even if I knew it was a way to out myself I would have been too afraid to do so. I did not want to be different I guess.   Well I am much less afraid now, and am going to explore and embrace this side of me for sure. And you're right, it is never too late.    Chanelta

      Saw a bit more on this: https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-a-santee-california-ymca-locker-room-freakout-became-an-anti-trans-crusade?ref=scroll   Thought this part was interesting. "In quick succession, the story traveled from KUSI to the New York Postand Daily Mail. A game of telephone played out in the process, with Mail, OAN, and The Daily Wire reporting that Phillips had seen a penis in the locker room. But Phillips herself had said in her city council comments only that she had seen a “naked male.” On local TV, she got a bit more specific, saying that she “did not see the man’s front side.” In fact, it would have been impossible for the teenager to see a penis, because Wood underwent gender-affirming surgery in 2016."

      Sorry lame comment. I am surprised and happy to hear your good news Heather! Best to you going forward 🌈🌈

      I know a AFAB NB who had some hormone therapy until their body had more-or-less the appearance that made them comfortable in their own skin. I presume they went through one of the informed consent clinics. I don't see them going cowboy route and just self-medicating though I've never asked.   Hugs!

      Fully agree with @Carolyn Marieon locking this one.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      I grew up Orthodox... church was mostly a ritual.  I joined my current faith community and actually began to believe because of my husband's first wife.    I'm strangely comfortable with my community, even though patriarchy is even more intense than where I grew up.  Sometimes you find out that you belong in a very unexpected place.

      Congratulations, that's wonderful @Willow I was raised in a strict Southern Baptist Church, and appreciate the learning it provided me as a young adult. I left the Baptist Church, when I moved from Missouri to Indiana, attending a Missouri Synod - Lutheran Church. I liked their teachings, however I wasn't going to go through the requirements to be confirmed. I've settled in a Friends Church that is Quaker based, because they don't judge people and are more free will. When ask about my Faith? I say I'm from the Church of independent thinkers. I do consider myself to be Christian, and because most of the Christian Based Churches believe in the same basic tenants of Christ. His crucifixion, and rising three days later to pay for our sins. I'm more about my own personal relationship with the Trinity. I don't like how some churches spend more money on things, than people.    Hugs, I know you'll make a difference.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Hi, amab here has anyone who is also amab nb gone down the route of hrt?   I have some questions if you have?   Do you feel more validated as an nb, did you ever feel like it pushed you to far the other way?   How did you acquire the fem&ms or whatever shape you got the oestrogen in, did you have to diy it or were you able to get a prescription? If you got a prescription were you honest abt being nb or did you have to fake being full mtf?   Did you go on a full or reduced course and did you take testosterone blockers or no?   If you did go on a reduced course was there anything you weren't expecting or was it what basically what described with a full course just lessened (this is what I'd expect)?   Is this post more suited for the hrt forum?

      As you know, the wait times for this in the UK via NHS are years away.  I have UK friends who have have the funds for the private route and were happy they did.  We do NOT recommend over-the-counter HRT, if you're considering that.  There are real health risks that need to be considered and monitored.   I am NB and began low-dose estrogen under the auspices of an excellent gender clinic here in Boston in December, 2019.  Physical changes did occur (at a slower rate), but I found low-dose did not offer me mental improvement of dysphoria, so under supervision we increased the dosage.  I'm very happy now with both the physical and mental changes that HRT affords.   I underscore what @KathyLauren recommended -- seeing a gender therapist was very helpful for me, and for many, many other folks who participate in TransPulse.  Finding an exact label for your identity is something many folks focus on at first, but the label is just a label -- finding the actions, whatever they may be, that make you happy turns out to be more important as we move forward with our journey.   Cheers,   Astrid

      Thank you @Marcie Jensen.  It’s been a long time coming but the seed was planted many years ago.  Seventies.

      @Mmindy  I have been a Presbyterian all my life from Nursery to now.  My faith did waver as a teen but came back to me.  I was ordained as an elected Deacon in 1981.  I am absolutely certain God has spoken to me several times including now. Even the current minister at the church we belong to has stated that while he felt called, he has never had God speak to him (in a voice)    Several years ago he told me to minister to teen transgenders.  I have been doing that for a year now.  But I believe I need to do more, hence getting ordained as a minister in the universal church.  I do have some theories about the various worldwide deities, which I believe are the results of Jesus’s disciples scattering to the corners of the Earth.  Strick Christians never consider that, they rarely think beyond Paul.   This body fits better with my thinking.   But to me, I don’t care what you believe or don’t.  The primary thing is leading a good life whether you believe or not.  My mother did, my father didn’t.  You are free to choose for your self    Hugs   Willow
