00:45 - Intro - It's time again for that Christmas Creep. And his name is Ebenezer Christmas.
07:14 - Email - I recently made potato soup and shared some with my neighbor. I put it in a large Mason jar and delivered it to her. She ate the soup, and a few days later, she called me to tell me she put the jar in my mailbox. I was heading to work and didn't check the mailbox. And then, long story short, I didn't remember to check the jar until two days later. It wasn't there, but there was mail. Did the mail carrier steal my Mason jar, and should I leave a note asking for it back? -- Post Purloined in Pennsylvania

What do we really know about Mrs. Claus?
24:05 - Email - I work in the cheese shop of a liquor store and I'm pretty new to the job. Because of this, I will often butcher pieces of cheese to the point we can't sell them. My manager tells me to throw them away, but I always feel like that's such a waste, and would love to take them home with me. How do I casually bring this up to ask if I can take the cheese (proverbially) for free? Or should I just take it anyway?[Note 1] -- Please Help Me Steal This Cheese

How do I stop my boyfriend from reading me bedtime stories without hurting his feelings?
My boyfriend started reading me bedtime stories a couple weeks ago. It was a joke at first, because I'd said I wouldn't be able to sleep when I'd downed three coffees that afternoon. The prroblem is he has done it EVERY. NIGHT. SINCE. And he makes terrible mouth noises. I don't even know where they are coming from, it only happens when he's reading out loud! It makes me so irrationally angry and annoyed that it takes me even LONGER to fall asleep than before! I am tired and exhausted but I love this man, please help.[Note 2]
43:00 - Email - My girlfriend and I have been dating for a little under six months. I've only met her family a handful of times, but her mother recently asked me to buy her shrooms. Is it possible I will be doing shrooms with her? How do I make a shroom trip with my girlfriend's mother not an entirely awkward experience? -- This Is Going to Be a Disaster in Denver
