Xmas Re-Gifter

BLACKBOX

Life is a Highway...
Lets face it by the I get home I'm burnt out and have no energy to go Xmas shopping. Since I'm already receiving gifts from customers I'm turning it around and re-gifting these. Gotta tell ya some customers have great taste when it comes to cookies and candy. By doing this I'm shortening my shopping list.

Have any of you done the same? or is it gone by the time you return to the building?

I will regift certain things, usually candy and sweets as i don't have much of a sweet tooth.
I generally use the cash i receive to purchase all of my Christmas presents. It helps alot

I am not much of a drinker, which is surprising after 19 yrs at this job, so I re-gift any liquor that I get. I take care of my helper courtesy of my customers' generosity. I have a fairly short gift list as my kids are in their 20's and cash is what they really want. I do keep gift certificates to local restaurants and lottery tickets as I am hoping that I will win and not have to enter my 20th year.

I usually regift my safe driving awards. To see those kids eyes light up when they get that set of UPS logo tumblers or steak knives just confirms the true meaning of X-mas.

I never thought about using those for Christmas gifts. I give mine to my wife as anniversary gifts.:wink2:

I gave my wife a pot holder from the local Ford dealership for Christmas one year. Turned out not as funny as I thought it would be:oops: Darn women just don't have a sense of humor like us guys.

Oh God yes. I live across the street from a mall and know the driver who
delivered to it for many years. He was very well liked and received so many presents from all of the shopkeepers that he never had to buy a single gift on his own to give out. Must be nice...

No Rod, we don't. And I can't figure out why. And speaking of anniversaries, we had just moved into this house and I was doing a lot of gardening when our first anniversary rolled around. I received a brand new, shiny, red wheelbarrow for the occasion. :helpsmili

Rod, for future reference.....if it's a necessity around the house, it probably won't make a good birthday or anniversary present for the wife.
:happy2:God bless 'em !!

It's not fair I tell ya!

Guys like practical gifts. They don't like candles, soaps, decorator items, pictures or clothes. We do. Males like tools, man toys, tickets and subscriptions to things.

Actually, I wouldn't mind a gift certificate from the Home Depot or Black and Decker. I like woodworking and miniatures, so just let me pick out my own power tools, thank you very much!!!

I do the yardwork and somehow need to get across to someone that
a summer anniversary doesn't necessarily mean a new lawnmower!

In other words:

It's not difficult to make a woman happy.

A man only needs to be:

1. a friend

2. a companion

3. a lover

4. a brother

5. a father

6. a master

7. a chef

8. an electrician

9. a carpenter

10. a plumber

11. a mechanic

12. a decorator

13. a stylist

14. a psychologist

15. a pest exterminator

16. a psychiatrist

17. a healer

18. a good listener

19. an organizer

20. a good father

21. very clean

22. sympathetic

23. athletic

24. warm

25. attentive

26. gallant

27. intelligent

29. funny

30. creative

31. tender

32. strong

33. understanding

34. tolerant

35. prudent

36. ambitious

37. capable

38. courageous

39. determined

40. true

41. dependable

42. passionate

43. compassionate

WITHOUT FORGETTING TO:

45. give her compliments regularly

46. love shopping

47. be honest

48. be rich

49. never stress her out

50. not look at another woman

AND AT THE SAME TIME, YOU MUST ALSO:

51. give her lots of attention, but expect little yourself

52. give her lots of time, especially time for herself

53. give her lots of space, never worrying about where she
goes

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT:

54. Never to forget:

* birthdays

* anniversaries

* arrangements she makes



HOW TO MAKE A MAN HAPPY

1. Show up scantily clad

2. Bring food


...and people wonder why men and women are so different.

If you gave her the potholder inside a new Ford, her mood would have been different. At least you were smart enough to give her something that wouldn't hurt when she threw it at you.:happy-very: I gave my wife a mop for Christmas one year and she.... well we won't go there.:biting:

I have found that tattooing your anniversary date onto your little ups`er will do two things. One,reminder of your anniversary every time you use it and Two,remind you of what you`ll lose the use of if you forget.
How do you feeder drivers manage to see it???:happy-very:If you use a mirror, do you have to have it tattooed in reverse?
