baby.....you have a problem.

so yanno i love you right? and under no other circumstances would i be exposing you to innocent ribbing and extreme laughter. but, baby...you have a problem.

now i'm not saying you give bad gifts. or that you give used gifts. i'm just saying your attention to detail is a bit off. which is quite unusual since your attention to detail at work has to be so keen. it's leading me to think that you do these things on purpose to make me laugh. yanno, to aid in me thinking you have a great sense of humor since we both know your jokes tend to be a bit..eh. 

now that i've smoothed out my approach to this subject. I just want to let y'all know that my girlfriend honestly makes me laugh like no one's business. but it's usually because of something she does, says, or in this case "gives me". i'm the funny one in the relationship. she gets her jokes in here and there. but usually if i had a "bong" i'd hit it after her punchlines. i know you guy are like..."get to the point"..well she is in violation of regifting. like i said not giving me a gift someone else gave her. but failing to realize what she's given me.

for instance. she has given me the same birthday card for the past 3 years. how in the hell she could possibly find the same card 3 years in a row....no idea. and no it's not the one card recycled i actually have 3 seperate cards that are exactly the same. but she did. and every year she has no CLUE it's the same card. She's also done that for valentine's day. maybe...just maybe the card says how she REALLY feels and jumps off the shelf and into her hand every year...i dunno. we'll have to ask her on my birthday or valentine's day when she gives me the same card again...

i'm a very sentimental guy. and if i get a card, a note, whatever..i'll keep it. if i'm with you i got everything you gave me. so this christmas..as i was putting my gifts away. i looked at the gift bag she gave me and was going to take the little "complimentary" card they give you on the handle and to my disbelief it had 

to: my "girlfriend's name"         from: my "girlfriend's friends name"

negro....the hell you ain't realize your friend had wrote on the card on the giftbag? that's reusing a giftbag 101 etiquette. if you gonna reuse, make sure the other person doesn't know you reused. i haven't even told her ass she did it. i'm just going to wait and give her the bag for valentine's day or something. lol

That's Crazy!
That's why I now have Miah do all the wrapping and writing on the gift tags. Her mind is still young and less likely to make those mistakes. Heck, she got the job because she kept catching MY mistakes.
You need a Miah.

Happy New Year! I hope this is a sign we'll get our ManFive Friday fix on soon :-)

Yeah, that's pretty tacky. I love giving gifts and it's often the little things/details that matter the most.

Blahaha! Let us know what she says when you call her out about it.

Krissy said...

No comment! Because there is so much I could say lol

what is your light? said...

lol @ the birthday cards...my mom is notorious for getting me the same cards every year for my birthday, valentine's day, & even those "just thinking of you" cards...

but re-using a gift bag? i see nothing wrong with that, even if the bag is mislabeled.

and that's messed up that you're the "funny 1" in the relationship...i wonder if she agrees with you, lol.

anyway, glad to see you back cuz...and sorry to hear about your unc!

Re-gifting...NO. LOL You've gotta remember reading those cards and getting some sense of "I've bought this before"

I tagged you on my blog. Go check it out.

At the very least she should have ripped off that little card tag! I do that anyway if I enclose a card. Well did you enjoy what was IN the bag? :)

I actually love the fact that she gets you the same cards. To me it says she really means it! I would be a scoche disappointed if I were you and got a different card.

@sheila: I do need a miah cause my hummer doesn't believe in helping his dad. He told me last night he was tired & I was tired we should hire a maid to clean up. So wrapping gifts..prolly ain't gonna happen. I however am a wrapper..I wrap all my gifts makes it more personal, sweet, & hands on.

@CG: I guess that sign was wrong, but I am starting manfive back up this Friday. And I agree the attention to detail is big fo me too.

@mscomposure: thanks for the blog love, I shall return it. And I know she stays "busy"...so she gets a pass.

@dianaboss: it is cute on some levels..on other's it makes me wonder if she just bought 30 of the same cards & gives it to all of her boyfriends lol

@monique: she will probably cry and make me feel bad for mentioning it..lol but secrectly she be laughing (on the inside).

@whatisyourlight: yea I don't think it's a big deal either just kinda funny. And yes I am the funny one..that should be obvious lol

@starrla monae: I'm saying...it's called pay attention lol. And I'm sorry I'm all late. I'm gonna check your page in a minute, yanno my ass is late 85% of the time w/ the comments & posting.

@gorgeouspuddin: I did enjoy what was in the bag...especially the dvd I mentioned she should buy for her aunt..yet she thought I said buy for me..preacher's kid on blu ray for me. *crickets* it's our new inside joke
