The Christmas Gift That Cost a Job: Was it Justified? 🎅🔥

So, here's the dilemma: a Secret Santa gift exchange in a small office takes a dramatic turn when 'Jen', the office Grinch, decides not to give a gift to our non-Christian protagonist. The situation escalates, leading to Jen's dismissal. But was it just a petty argument over a gift, or a symptom of a larger issue at play? Let's delve into the world's reaction to this holiday debacle... 🎁🌍
