Christmas Business Problems?

So, it is now December, and almost Christmas! It left me wondering though, what are the seasonal difficulties that you come across?

Personally, I find that there is an increased workload, and this is due to the fact that some people (very, very naughty people) drive after having a drink, and then cause a bit of damage to their car. Some of them are even open and honest about the fact that this has happened, which is refreshing, but still wrong of course.

We also find it hard to staff Christmas Day because we need somebody on call, but luckily one of the lads is tee total so wouldn't be drinking anyway, and he's said that he will do it this year.
