    Okay, so the wife makes a semi big deal about my birthday, and comes through with some uber lame gifts. I have been very straight with her in the past, I am not easy to buy for. I would rather she simply didnt try and just get me a gift card to Jenson or where ever...
    She did try, and the only thing that scored was a cd I already had but that got ripped off. She had to Ebay it for way more then it was worth. And she framed a small concert poster I bought on Ebay for $2...I had intended on simply tacking it up in the garage. I HATE FRAMED ****!
    So now I sit and drink, posting this question. Do I tell her how lame the stuff was, being straight and true. Or do I feign enthusiasm for some lame stuff that I wont use and/or dont even want?
    Am I an ungratefull ass?

    I mean, she bought me a stupid artsy fartsy mtb poster with a lame ass saying on it. I almost left it out in the rain. She did put thought into it, which I appreciate, but as we used to say, she was all thrust, no vector...

    I R drink too, I don't have an answer for your question.

    I'd just appreciate the company, birfdays are overrated anyway. All I know is with each passing birfday, my hair move further down my back, and further away from my eyebrows.

    Suck it up big boy. If you tell her the truth you'll never have sex again.

    Someone is going to respond like that. I know it. It's also going to start an argument.

    Oh wait, that happens in every thread.

    If your looking for a fight, go elsewhere.
    Joking, I love a good fight.

    Thanks

    Dude, it is not like she got you a bad sweater you have to wear to family reunions. Take her lame-o gifts and be happy.

    You should give him a ring, he's on his own at the moment.

    I think this thread was a lame attempt to attract birthday wishes.

    Happy birthday you ungrateful grumpy old turd.

    naaa i wouldn't tell her that the gifts were lame. it's the thought that counts or something like that. well you got drunk so it wasn't that bad of a b-day.

    ahhh...just keep all the presents....what is really worth is just the intention of given you something....she propably don't know better what to give to you...i got one at home exactly like that...like a prior post...birthday's are overrated anyways!...she might be short on the gifts,but she'll make it up to you some other way!

    Sounds like she doesn't know who you are. I say file for divorce.

    The best gifts a woman could ever give a man are oral and silence. Best part is they are both free! - Ralphie May

    Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.

    Nothing like the clarity that comes from having that next drink huh?

    So what are you really pissed off about? It can't be birthday presents.

    Really? Are the gifts themselves so important? She obviously put a lot of thought and effort into the gifts.

    Appreciate the fact that you have a wife who continues to go out of her way for you. Most wifes (and husbands) don't do that for each other these days.

    bahaha. hey man, best advice. suck it up. my birthday was horrible. got 2 presents from the girl, and none from anyone else. i.e. parents so, one thing you should keep in mind is that you'll prob have more good b-days than bad ones. so just take the bad with the good.
