    " I ... live in a world full of fools babbling "Merry Christmas" at one another? What's Christmas but a time for finding yourself a year older and not a day richer? There's nothing merry in that. If I could work my will, .... every idiot who goes about with "Merry Christmas" on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. "
    Ebenezer Scrooge

    ....you gotta love it! ;)

    Ebenezer: You'll want the whole day off tomorrow, I suppose.
    Bob Cratchit: If quite convenient, sir.
    Ebenezer: It's not convenient. And it's not fair! If I stopped you half a crown for it, you'd think yourself ill used, wouldn't you? But you don't think me ill used if I pay a day's wages for no work, hmm?
    Bob Cratchit: 'Tis only once a year, sir.
    Ebenezer: That's a poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every 25th of December.
    Bob Cratchit: Yes, sir. I'm sure I'm very sorry, sir, to cause you such an inconvenience. It's the family more than me, sir. They put their hearts into Christmas as it were, sir.
    Ebenezer: Yes, and put their hands into my pockets as it were, sir. I suppose you'd better have the whole day. But be back all the earlier the next morning.
    Bob Cratchit: I will indeed, sir. Thank you, sir! It's more than generous of you, sir.
    Ebenezer: Yes, I know it is, you don't have to tell me.

    Not a quote exactly, but a scene from my all time favourite xmas movie. Watched it a hundred times with my kids before they got too old for it!

    Ah! done her proud this year - got her the very latest Black & Decker power drill. (She might get tired of it by end of Boxing Day though - I'll do the right thing and take it off her hands ... ;) )

    I agree, Dewalt or Makita would be the preferred option and will prove longer lasting........You still have time to change, Screw Fix have some good deals at the moment;)
