    When my kids put their dirty glasses on the counter RIGHT OVER THE DISHWASHER... And the dishwasher has room to take them.

    When you're wrapping a gift and the paper you thought you measured oh so perfectly turns out to be like an inch short then you're left cutting little pieces off odd sized paper just to cover up the parts you missed and then you just rewrap the entire thing because ocd

    This is me except I don't rewrap it because, well, they are lucky it was wrapped in the first place and not handed to them in a tied closed plastic bag or stapled shut brown bag. Heck, if it's really big I've been known to just toss it into a 55 gallon trash bag and zip-tie it shut.

    The best gift packaging: FedEx boxes and envelopes.

    Place the gift in the box.
    Seal the box.
    Fill-out the airbill with 'to' & 'from'
    Place the airbill in the provided plastic pouch

    done.

    My Amazon wish lists - all 26 of them - are up to date, categorized by genre, and in alphabetical order.

    Choices range from "Shopping List - Bathroom" to "Shopping List - Wardrobe Update_SpringSummer" (because this one stays ready for every eventuality at all times).

    Just putting that out there...😉

    But, babies

    They smother

    This is why I almost never give babies as Christmas gifts

    "Almost never"

    Listen, even the fire dept deserves a little Christmas gift every now and again

    I would expect nothing less. Pick your favorite thing on those 26 lists and go buy it. It's a present from me.

    I appreciate cha. :*

    Edit: Ladies, this is how you get what you want. No griping or complaining from your man. He's got absolutely no reason to and if he does he's a little *kitten* (I even wrote *kitten* and self censored myslef. See, I'm trying to be good.).

    dudes, life couldn't be any easier for you if this was how the world worked.

    😂 Agreed on the edit and back at cha!

    And @CacoEther? Birds of a feather 'n all that good stuff! 😏

    ^ I stand corrected. You're absolutely correct.

    But, I also stand by my post that you can't go wrong with sticking to the list. Don't be all like "I'm getting Tupperware and wooden spoons because that's what my daddy did.".

    Know what I mean Jean?

    I only edit because I want to ensure I convey my thoughts correctly and I don't want yalls to think I'm being snarky towards anyone. If I was I'd make sure they knew it but not everyone knows that about me.

    Of course. I write lists for groceries, why would it be different for the things I want or can use in my life? Especially since most major shopping sites have a "wishlist" option now.

    The problem is getting the people who need to see them to you know, actually see them. :lol:

    This just made me so lonesome for my mom. She’s the only person I’ve ever heard use this expression, what is it from?
  • tmantwotmantwo Member Posts: 2,209 Member Member Posts: 2,209 Member
    ^ sorry, I have no idea where it's from. I won't pretend to know by looking it up.

    I heard it decades ago from either my mom or grandma.
