    Default Why you shouldn't be vague about gifts

    My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
    She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."


    I bought her a bathroom scale.


    And then the fight started......

    I completely agree with that, btw. Hell, if you want something, just tell me what it is. I'm a guy. I DON'T "just know", and no, I'm NOT supposed to.

    I say what I want. And what do I get? Clothes. What do I tell you to NOT buy me? Clothes. No, I am NOT going to wear some dorky crap just because you got it for me. And I don't even wear ties. Why the Hell do I get a tie every Father's Day "from the girls". Sure. Blame the kids.

    Just bring the money along and I will show you what you can buy me for clothes because Lord knows I wear pretty-much two brands of jeans and a couple of brands of shirts, and most ly the same style. Not a lot algebra to this. Hell, you can even wrap it and I'll act surprised.

    Do women think like that? Hell no. My 'humor button" finds ENDLESS amounts from my SIL who is THE stereotypical dumbass, redneck guy. He comes home all proud of himself and presents my daughter with $150 gift certificate. I usually keep a straight face around that chump but I just busted out laughing when Ashley says, "Hey. Dad ... Guess what L- got me for Christmas? $150 gift certificate." I was like, I'm going to my room. I must've been bad or something to deserve it. And I'll be able to hear y'all just fine from there, thanks,

    Default Good one Abbey

    Abbey. That's almost like when my wife and I were younger, and had little money to take care of normal things around the house.
    She told me she wanted a NEW DRYER for the clothes.

    So I bought her 100 feet of clothesline, and a box of clothespins!
