9780060758929: Don't Get Scrooged: How to Thrive in a World Full of Obnoxious, Incompetent, Arrogant, and Downright Mean-Spirited People

Inside find helpful advice, such as:

  • Take a Vacation, Not a Guilt-Trip
    Don't Get "Should Upon"
  • Hades or Homecoming?
    Opt In- or Out-of Family Events
  • Quit Being Your Mother
    Ban Worry from Your Holidays
  • It's Not Daytona—You're Not Jeff Gordon
    Don't Try to Cook Tailgating Turkeys

Don't Get Scrooged is a jewel of a handbook on how to avoid, appease, and even win over the Scrooges who haunt your holidays. Whether it's the salesclerk who ignores you in favor of her cell phone, the customer who knowingly jumps ahead of you in line at Starbucks, the unnaturally irritable boss down the hall, or the in-laws who invite themselves (every year) for a two-week stay at your house, you will always need to deal with Scrooges, grumps, uninvited guests, sticks-in-the-mud, and supreme party poopers. Learning to handle them whenever and wherever they appear is not just optional—it's essential.
