Okay, ladies, we've all had it happen - some dumb guy (husband, boyfriend, lover, whatever) gives us a gift that isn't really a present for us but something they want us to have! You know what I'm talkin' about!
- Sexy Lingerie - They just want to see you in it. Sadly, they have no idea that black garter belts and S&M inspired bras dig into your skin like dull knives and you'd much rather be wearing flannel jammies with feet! Send them a male thong if they do this to you - and make it pink!
- Household Appliances - Are you kidding me? Do guys really think we are just pining away for a stinkin' vacuum, dustbuster or waffle iron instead of a gift certificate for a day spa?
- Exercise Equipment - I can't even go here. This gift idea is beyond moronic and any man who gives it to his lady should be drawn and quartered by forty sweaty body building men with bad breath. Oh, and forced to drink spinach juice for forty days and forty nights. While wearing the above mentioned pink thong!
(This is one of the funniest commercials I have ever seen. It was created by the Saatchi & Saatchi Agency of New York for J.C. Penny)
Do you have a "bad gift" story? Tell us all about it in the comments - go ahead and rant, it's good for you!
ON THE UPSIDE: Hey, it's nice to have someone care enough to buy anything for you as a gift so let's give the guys a little slack this year and just toss them a dog bone instead of tossing them into the doghouse! Enjoy the laughs and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
