Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, we can all agree that office Secret Santa traditions are a total shit show. Everyone's stressed; the spending limit is either too high or too low; and no one ever gets anything they want. It's the most "wonderful" time of the year!

But one mom decided to take matters into her own hands when she didn't receive the Secret Santa gift she had so desired. She did the unthinkable: she reached out to the co-worker who gave her the gift, complained about the price, and then demanded cash.

But there was a third rap battle written for the show, which was cut due to time and because it didn't actually move the plot along. The issue on the table for Cabinet Battle #3? Slavery.
