Christmas is important. It's a time to wake up late, eat copious amounts of beef/chocolate/turkey/lamb/boring vegetables. It's also a time to talk to/spend time with/get passive aggressive towards your family. Doing this stuff might mean you weren't exactly glued to Kotaku waiting on breaking video game news.

We've all been on the receiving end of some terrible customer service and felt a bit powerless; there's something cathartic about seeing someone get their just desserts.
