Title: The "NG strikes again" gift-hating game!
Post by: Tabris on December 08, 2007, 04:17:43 PM
In honor of Shay's NG Strikes Again thread, it's time to find fault with any gift, no matter how wonderful.

(The original thread is here: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=20173.0 (http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=20173.0))

Here's how it goes. You "give a gift" to the next poster. The person who replies then must find a way that your gift if offensive, awful, insufficient, or otherwise wrongheaded.  Then, after doing so, that person gives a gift.

Have fun. Oh, and while you're at it, here--have this lovely assortment of fruit.

Oh no!  It will probably have those fruit flies in it.  And how do you know whether or not I'm allergic to some of the fruit in it? 

Here is a lovely sweater for you.

Fancy?  You just want to rub it in my face that you can afford chocolate that's FANCY!  What's wrong with plain old Hershey's or Dove?

Are you even remotely aware that those dyes cause cancer?  I'm probably going to die just from being in the same room from them.  Are you trying to kill me?

Well, you obviously forgot about my tender skin, which scratches easily.  But that's ok, I'll wear gloves, never mind about the thorns...I'll just suffer in silence...ouch!....oooh, that stings....how often do I have to water these things, anyway?

My gift to you is a season pass for the local team's games.

Well.  You seemed to enjoy the last three dinner parties I invited you to.  You didn't complain about my cooking at that time.  If you were not satisfied with what I had to offer as the hostess - yoiu should not have accepted my next three invites.

I, being thoughtful, have gotten you a lovely crystal tree ornamant.

Well thank you.   ::)  I am assuming you got me a SWEAT SHIRT because I am so slender you thought I was a LITTLE BOY.  A little boy who likes sweatshirts with snowmen as oppossed to a GROWN woman, and a lady.  I understand that on your budget, something befitting a lady was probably not possible.  That is ok, Dahling, I understand.  (Almost too snarky for myself).

To give you some guidance on what to get an adult, I got you gourmet coffee beans.

Well, that's just great. I'm allergic to coffee, and my husband can only drink decaffeinated beverages. We don't even OWN a coffee grinder. You're trying to rub that in our faces, aren't you? What am I supposed to do with these...these....magic beans?

Why are you paying so much attention to me? I'm going to go to HR about this! You won't get away with your snooping ways! I bet you hacked into my private email account and you're cyberstalking me on the popcorn and Christmas tin boards. But I've got all the proof I need now!

The glitter will fall off and get all over my floor.  Thanks for making my house more of a mess at the holidays.

On the other hand, I thought very, very hard about you and bought you tickets to the fabulous show you have been wanting to see, dinner at the restaurant you love (with one other person), and of course a limo ride to and from all events. 

Of course, I checked your calendar to make sure you didn't have plans that night-do you think I would be that thoughtless?  And of course I hired a sitter for your dependents.

Have a great time!

I have signed you up for the pottery class you said you were interested in taking sometime this year.  You know-the one with the great instructor, all supplies paid for, and at a set of times/dates you can go.  I have scheduled myself and one other person to help you out by babysitting your Labrador during those times.  I have even tail-wagging-proofed my home for the occasions!  I sure hope you have a great time.

By the way, I've booked a "weekend at home" vacation for you.  The house cleaner is coming for a top-to-bottom scrub of your house while you're at work on Friday, the gardener is going to do all your leaf raking and other landscaping chores, and I got a handyman to come in and fix anything you need fixing (he'll just need a list).  This way you can relax at home with a good book and not worry about anything around the house!

Vegan?  Are you trying to make a crack about the fact that I eat meat?  I know that your personal lifestyle choices are actually all about insulting me about my lifestyle choices, aren't they?  Admit it.

(I can't believe I just had to be insulted about getting a dessert.  Aaargh.  This thread is making me want chocolate.  And new cars.  And homemade quilts.  And a new motorcycle-to go in my lovely new house's garage.)

Personally, I have gotten you something you will really love.  Honest-you will.  I got you a new vehicle-one of your choice.  That's right-if you want the new Prius, it is all yours.  If you want a vintage Vincent motorcycle-I will go and get it for you.  Model A-done.  BMW R1200RT-well, I might just have to test ride that bike for you to be sure it works, but then it will be all yours.   ;D  DeLorean time machine with nuclear powered flux capacitor-I will get it, thought it may take a little longer.  Just let me know what you choose.   It will be in perfect running order, with all maintenance, insurance and gas paid for for one year from the date of purchase.

 ???  For heaven's sake, you know that the most fuel efficient vehicles around are motorcycles.  A nice V-Strom would get me great mileage while still being fun, unlike the econobox there-and you know I have been wanting a new bike.  I'll bet I can't even trailer my bike behind that little skateboard, can I?  And a track day or motorcycle skills update would be much more sensible than some lessons on driving a cage-as though I do that any more than I have to. 

How do you like your nice new Digital SLR, along with the computer to load pictures, a pre-paid year of high speed internet so you can share your photographic genius, and (of course) image editing software and the training you need to make it easy and fun for you?  There is a nice small point and shoot digital camera in there too, in case you don't want to carry around the big kit.  I even threw in some extra lenses, a camera bag and a nice tripod to go with it all.

Wonderful!  Then DH can wonder where I am and if something hanky panky is going on with my massager.  Or worse yet, he can wonder if I am making some kind of comment on his abilities.

Here, I got you some nut-free fudge from one of the best shops in Wisconsin Dells.

Oh, that's just GREAT.......too bad I live in HAWAII!!!!  (No, I don't really, but sometimes it looks tempting, lol.  By the way, fun story.....I was watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition a week or so ago, and the team was putting together a house for a family that lived in Hawaii, and while they were working on the house, they sent the family on a vacation to Whistler, B.C.  So, I guess there ARE people in the world who envy the six-month Canadian winters, lol.  Personally, I've had my fill of them.......I think I want to move to California when I'm older and I can afford it).

And he'll probably bring his own stuff and act all la-de-da over how superior his equipment is compared to my cheap wedding present pots and pans.  And he'll probably send me all over town looking for fittlehead fern curd.  Or, he'll criticize the fact that I make a lot of crock pot meals.  He won't put kielbasa into my bean soup, telling me, "Whale shark sausage is so much better than kielbasa!" even though whale shark sausage is $250 a pound and kielbasa is $3 a package at Albertson's.  Plus, who's going to pay for all the ingredients this guy uses?  Me?  I can't afford whale shark sausage and fittlehead fern curd!  He'll also probably use saffron threads to flavor everything, which are $69 an ounce.

I got you an absolutely hilarious book of jokes and funny anecdotes! It's gotten rave reviews and look how colorful the cover is!

I am gifting to you this lambswool lined, down coat. It's light weight, for outside fun, but also, fancy enough to wear on any evening out. I do so hope you like it.

I got you an all expenses paid trip to the sporting event of your choice, arranged flight, hotel and food. I even booked you a nanny at the 5 star hotel that you are to be staying in so that you and your SO can go out on the town!! THere are also several VISA gift cards, good whereever Visa is accepted...so you are all set. I even arranged for time off work with your boss.

I hate sports!  The crowds are so loud, the stadiums only sell smelly fattening food and I swear I can smell perspiration everywhere.  How unsanitary.  And how dare you book me on a coach flight??  You know with my long legs, I need more room to stretch out in first class.  This will give me leg cramps all night.  I hate that hotel chain, I can't even get rewards points with them and they always have pillows that are too fluffy.  The hotel restaurant doesn't even have overhead lighting - just candles at the tables.  You're trying to ruin my eyes!!!

The nanny smiles too much, and her hair is too long - how can she be expected to take care of a kid when she doesn't know that nannies are only supposed to have short hair?!  I never said I wanted a night on the town anyway -- then I'd have to wear heels and that will only make these leg cramps worse.  I know, you want me to twist an ankle, don't you?  Ha!  I foiled that plan! 

VISA???  How dare you!  Don't you know that every time you swipe a credit card, your risk of cancer goes up from the electro-micron-bobbles?  You're trying to kill me!  AND what are you doing talking to my boss?!  You're trying to steal my job while I'm on this "thoughtful" trip you arranged for me!  Well, I can see right through you, and I'm not going!!!

Here's a first edition copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Oh thank you very much.  Guess you didn't see the same copy I already have which I showed you right after I got it.

Here are the first 3 books in the Septimus Heap story.  The 4th book will be delivered to you personally once it is published.

Post by: wonderfullyanonymous on January 06, 2008, 05:56:16 PM
I don't even know who this Septimus Heap is, but I suppose I will read them since you sent them to me, even though I probably won't like them. I will probably have to sign  for the 4th book, which means I will have to stay home and wait for it to show up. Even if I don't have to sign for it, I still need to be here so that is doesn't get stolen, or left out in the snow, or rain, or a puddle. What a pain for a book...I still don't even think I will like these books. So, thank, I guess.


For you, I have a George Forman Grill. The big one, so that you can cook all your favorite types of steak, chicken, fish, and pork, more healthy.

That restaurant is across town and I don't like it.  Didn't you get the hint after the first time I went there with you?  I didn't finish the food and gave you the left overs.  I told you that it wasn't my favorite type of food. 

I went to the daycare you use and paid you up for another 6 months.

Great! Another "gift" I can't use! My children are all in school full time. So this gift would go to waiste as my youngest is just over the cut off date for enrollment! Plus I don't even get off work until 6pm and my DH is not reliable enough to pick him up as he travels alot. I don't have any other relitives to do pick up and I don't know our neighbors well enough to ask them to pick him up.

I am passing to you a gift to stay at any hotel any where in the world, for 6 days 7 nights. I am also borrowing you my Canon Rebel Digital Camera that I just bought, and giving you three 1 mb memory cards for it, plus batteries. I am also giving you several thousand dollars in spending money so you won't have to worry about paying for anything. To top it off, you can use this gift any time in the next 24 months.

I got you a Newman's Own organic chocolate bar.

Organic? Don't you know organic food keeps you from developing resistance to pesticides? Are you trying to kill me by liver disease?!

I'm giving you an ironclad excuse for getting up in the face of someone who really pushes your buttons and telling them exactly what you think of them and why.  You'll suffer no negative consequences whatsoever, no matter what you do.

I seriously want this.

Back on topic...

Forget?  You got me a robe and slippers that will give me amnesia?  How could you?

Here's a video game that matches your interests perfectly, as well as the system it plays on.  If you already have that system, I've worked it so you can either return it to the store for a refund, or sell it on ebay for 10X store price.

A game system? We don't even own a television! I only listen to NPR! Only fools sit and turn their brains to mush by playing games and watching tv all day!

I made you a herb garden so you can cook all your favorite dishes with fresh herbs. I also hired a really cute gardener to come over and take care of it. He will garden with his shirt off!

Don't you know I prefer my herbs dried? And besides, watching someone garden topless isn't my cup of tea.


I went all out this time. Here's a gift basket with two tickets to the next home game for the Chicago Cubs, a Lou Piniella jersey, an Alfonso Soriano jersey, a dinner-for-two gift certificate to Harry Caray's, and an autographed baseball.

Sports?  A sports-themed gift?  thanks, but I'm not really into sports much, and I'd have to go out to the stadium for this, and I havea bad crowd phobia that I'd have to face.  I'd really much rather stay away from something like that.

here's some lovely  bubble bath and the world's biggest fluffiest softest towel to use after your luxurious soak

I'm allergic to bubble bath. And this afternoon, I picked up a towel which had a huge hairy spider on (really, I did. *shudder*) so now I have a phobia of towels. Especially huge soft fluffy ones.

I sponsored a third world child in your name. You will receive photos, letters and drawings from the child, plus progress updates on how they're doing.  :)

(Sorry about the spider!  I hate the things.. HORRIBLE fear.  It is the only thing that will cause me to run screaming from the room.)

Thanks.  Just... thanks.  Another mouth to feed. 

Here's a wonderful tool that will become whatever you need when you need it.  Need a hammer?  POOF It's a hammer.  Need an allen wrench?  There ya go.  Need a 5/32 socket?  you got it.  Tire gage?  It's there.  Whatever you need is right here in this handy little thing.

Yeah. That'd be reallllllly handy, if it weren't for the fact that I'm stupid when it comes to anything DIY. I can't even change a lightbulb. I'd never use all these tools.

Gee, thank, those chicks grew up to be 1 hen and 20 roosters. We fell in love with the pigs, so no pork chops or bacon there, and what good was one cow? She was never PG, so there is no calf, hence no milk.


From my hen, I give you 2 eggs.

Thanks for announcing that so loud anyone can hear. Now I have people beating down my door to get it, and I can't take a sick day off of work anymore.

I got you this fantastic, state-of-the-art, point-and-shoot digital camera.

That's great. But you, I'm sort of a traditionalist and I really like film cameras so that I can make up photo albums and scrapbooks. And I already have a pretty good $20 digital camera that I use to take my eBay pics. Maybe I can regift this.


I am giving you your very own magic wand. (ala Harry Potter or Fairy Godmother)

You know I am on a diet and trying not to eat sweets! Are you trying to sabotage my efforts? You are just jealous!

Here is a perfectly trained doggy. This dog is potty trained and trained to not jump on people or to beg from people. I have also included a lifetime supply of Iams dog food, vet visits and shots. I even got you a dog license and a leash! If you work, I have arranged for a dog-sitter to come over and take Moppet out for a walk. This is a special, non-alergen producing dog. He doesn't shed either, so you can really enjoy him. Also the dog is trained to fetch the newspaper, remote and drinks from the fridge. All you have to do is love him!

That's just what I need, another nicknack and you are trying to enforce something on me that I don't like, this is not a "gift"

I bought you a full wardrobe that will never shrink, get dirty, go out of style, always fit no matter what and make you look vibrant, young and slim at all times1

I have hired for you a gardener, and in case you have no yard, the gardener will take care of your houseplants. No houseplants? Problem solved, gardener will purchase those for you, and take care of them. Want something you don't see, tell gardener, he will get that one, and take care of it also. Water shortage, no problem, he will take care of that also.

I have to make sure meals are planned & prepped,  find sitters for the kids until DH gets home, and of course I won't be able to relax at the spa if I know I left my house a mess so I'll have to do laundry & dishes & Vacuum. Gee. I just can't wait.

Sirius! I only listen to XM and NPR, what on EARTH will I do with Sirius. That is such an insult to me and are you going to pay for the subscription for the time I have this...why don't you keep it?

I bought you lifetime tickets to any concert, show, movie, play ANY event you and your family/friends want to go to. The best seats in the house and you will get to meet the cast after the show plus you will always have a free 5 star meal waiting for you at your favorite restaurant when you get out.

I got you a day planner

That's it? A Day planner? That's ALL you got for me? I thought you liked me! I thought I was your friend and all you got me was a lousy day planner! I can't believe all you spent was...$10.00! And it was marked 50% off, too! How cheap!

I am getting you a two week trip around the world. You get to pick the countries and it's 5-star hotels the whole way. First class. I even called your boss and arranged for you to take your two week vacation. I hired a nanny for your kids and a pet-setter for your pets. I even called your spouses/s.o.'s work and arranged for their vacation too! If you are not married or have a s.o., I have arranged for your BFF to go with you, and arranged his/her time off work as well...their childcare and pet care is taken care of too.

I also have a Platinum Visa, Mastercard and Amex cards for you to take with you. None of them have limits! The SKY is the limit on this trip!

Have fun!

No worries, I found this excellent little token coin purse just for you. It is super light weight and will fit in any purse or pocket. However, it can open up to 5' x 5' dimensions and holds up to 100lbs. And it is perfectly compartmentalized for utter organization.

Since our mail is delivered in the afternoon, just think of all those fruit flies that will be following the mailman.  Our neighbors will be so mad at us for causing their homes to be infested.  Then I will have to hire an exterminator to fix the problem.  Wow - thanks ever so much.  Then I will have to wash all that fruit and with the drought, I was trying to conserve water like a good community member.

I am giving to you the best piece of cheesecake that you have ever tasted.  So creamy and smooth, you will just love it.

How dare you! Don't you know that I just started my diet, and now you've ruined it. I hope your happy now!

I got you a dozen bright colored helium balloons to brighten your day, and to use for squeaky voice fun, if you are so inclined.

Ballons, great, just as dumb as flowers, I can watch them slowly die as they lose their lift, and sink to the floor, how depressing. You couldn't think of a gift that would last more that a few days.

I got you a massage chair.

Perfect. Just what DH needed...an excuse to not give me a shoulder rub after a long day. "Just go sit in your chair honey!"  :P


I got you this lovely leather-bound journal. You have been thinking about keeping a diary, right??

Great, just great.  I'll never write in it, and now every time I look at it I'm going to feel guilty!

I got you a self-balancing checkbook.

Oh, thanks, I know you think I'm an alcoholic, but do you have to be so PA about it?

I got you a trip around the world.

Post by: Sharon F on July 31, 2008, 08:39:42 AM
Like I have time to drop everything an travel around the world. Unless I'm only spending 60 seconds in each city I can't possibly do it. And whats the point of being there for 1 minute, I'd probably spend most of the time in airports. So thanks for the gift of two straight weeks of security screening...sounds like a blast.

I got you a Tiffany lamp.

The pieces will probably look lovely when it is smashed on the floor after the kids try to play soccer in the living room. Maybe I should just keep it in the box in the closet?

I got you a jewelry box that never lets your chains get tangled, you can always find backs to your earrings and all you have to do is close the lid and the jewelry cleans itself.

Post by: Lady Snowdon on July 31, 2008, 02:27:10 PM
That's absolutely fantastic, except that I never have time in the mornings to put jewelry on, so it'll never get used.  Come on, you should know that! 


I got you a bottle of the lotion you were admiring the other day.
Title: Re: The "NG strikes again" gift-hating game!
Post by: a clever screenname on July 31, 2008, 02:37:20 PM
I wasn't admiring THAT. I was staring at it because I was wondering who would be fool enough to waste money on that crud. I guess now I have an answer to that question.


I got you this collection of 400 assorted teas, and a new tea pot to go with it. Enjoy!

OK, i treated myself to a lovely pair of $200 shoes. Now, I feel sooo guilty about spending so much money on myself when there are starving children in the world. So, thanks for the guilt trip.

I baked you a healthy version of your favourite cupcakes. They're low fat, sugar and salt, but taste absolutely divine.

Thanks, but I didn't get a chance to hide them in time, and DH and the kids devoured them. They told me they were really good though, so thanks, I guess.


I got you a replacement of your favorite childhood toy, in perfect condition.

Post by: Sharon F on August 01, 2008, 09:29:54 AM
Well of course I can't keep something like this in my home. I have kids here. The toys from my childhood all had sharp corners, small pieces and were made of flammable materials. Are you trying to endanger the lives of my children?

Organic food is a big con, they just tell you it's better for you to charge you ridiculously high prices for foods. So, thanks, but I think it's a big waste of money.

I bought you a voucher for your favourite takeaway food place, so you can enjoy a cosy night in with whoever you like.

I am waving my magic wand over you...you will never have a "woman's time" again. You can still have kids if you want to...but no mess, cramps or PMS. You'll never have to worry about wearing white pants or running out of supplies or starting when you are on a hot date.

I give you the ability to control the weather where you will be at that time. Going to work, and want it to rain all day because you will be stuck inside, no problem. Working outside, and want nice dry weather, not too hot or too cold, perfectly acceptable. Taking vacation, and want weather perfect to what you will be doing during that time, not a problem.

Of course you did. I don't like the color of the ink, and I can't use it at work because it's the wrong color ink.


I got you a classic car. A roadster to be exact. Shiny red, registered and insured, so you won't have to worry about that. It took the gentleman I bought it from almost 15 years to complete it, and he gave me an awesome sale price on it. DOn't you just love it?!?!

I got you a continueing education package from your nearest Big Name University. It will help you get that big promotion at work. I paid all the tuition, books and even got you a parking pass.

Then you have the products IN the movies! Cars, phones, clothes! Product placement.

THEN you have the merchandizeing. All the action figures and "playsets". What a waist.

I bought you a year's supply of groceries. All your favs and your fav brands.

Here is a really nice lawn mower.  Not only will it automatically mow your lawn at your command, it will also mulch it (if that is what you want), put it in a compost (if that is what you do), rake, mulch or compost your leaves in fall and melt the snow and salt in the winter.

Oh...three MORE hours of work...thanks so much!

Here is a wind turbine so now you will never have to pay for electricity again. I have also arranged for a qualified tech to install it and teach you how to operate it. I have also converted every appliance in your home to electric so that you won't have to upgrade or pay gas bills.

I got you a years worth of free gas...and a nice car to go with it along with a "bad Ooo, I tried to get around the word filter with a nasty word." car...and really good insurance for both of them.

Little-known (and absolutely true! really!) fact:  if I turn invisible, I'll also be blind.  Light has to bounce off of the back of the eye (can't remember which part--the retina, maybe?) in order for us to see--if the retina is invisible, light passes through it instead of reflecting off.  So thanks for giving me a useless gift--nobody can see me, but I can't see either!

I've just given you a gift certificate for the supermarket(s) of your choice.  Your next week's groceries are on me.

I have a dairy cow, chickens for eggs and well...chicken, pork for pork chops and bacon...we even smoke our own bacon. (just call me Martha  ;) ). I have my own flour mill for flour and even make my own sugar from maple trees.

And what am I supposed to do with my old stuff?  I'm too lazy to make a Goodwill run! 
(Actually, I'd love this.) 

I made you a set of nice totes to use for grocery bags.

Hello--remember I live in TEXAS?  What do I need with a heated toilet seat?  I'll burn my buns off!  And what's up with the "deodorizing" thing?  Are you trying to say I stink?

I got you your own private swimming pool.  It's as deep or as shallow as you want it to be, and you can share it with as many or as few people as you like--either pool parties galore or your own personal place to relax.  It's completely up to you.

Great. I rent, so the landlord is not going to be too happy when he finds out I've had a pool built in my back yard. Plus, my yard is tiny! Where would I put it? It would take up the entire yard, and I LOVE my yard! Then I'd have the pesky neighbor kids over all. the. time....And what if I move? I certainly can't take a pool with me! Thanks for the thought though...I guess.

No, wait, I'm three weeks into not being a vegetarian anymore (after years of it). (That is actually true!)

Darn, that would have been a great answer.

I'll just have to settle for calling you an insensitive cultural imperialist for blithely foisting your American holiday on me. How dare you!

What kind of idiot would put cheese in cake? I mean here, you have cheese. Lovely yummy cheese. You could put it on pasta, or on a pizza, or on anything you can think of. Cheese is like an all-purpose food. And then there's cake. Cake is fancy. Cake is the debutante of the food world. Cake is for special occasions. And you just put your prosaic, mundane, all-too-common cheese in my wonderfully hoity-toity cake!

How long did you have to follow her around to get it? Now she thinks I'm a crazed stalker who wants to murder her when really I just have a healthy admiration for her acting talent...

So...you think I don't know how to clean? Or cook? Or that it's so terrible you'd rather a robot did it? Gee...thanks...*runs off crying*

I got you a Magic Stove that cooks things instantly! All you have to do is prepare your favorite dishes, put it in the oven and Voila...dinner is done! The MagiStove...coming to a retail outlet near you! (oops channeled a tv commercial)

To me, it seems like that is just a regular oven. I think that you have been scammed :( Now a magic oven would be great, I tell the oven what I want and it magically gives it to me!

I bought you a pair of Tom shoes. They are comfy, cute and support a good cause! http://www.tomsshoes.com/

Great.  Now where am I going to put it?  And what does it eat?  And did it ever occur to you that a creature with a built-in...Scrabble detector...might not be the best gift in the world?

I got you a nice warm winter coat.  It repels rain, snow and mud, and looks great with every outfit.

And it is also pink. And girly. [shudder] It might well look "great", but that does not change the fact that it is pinker than a highly embrarrassed piglet who has rolled in a pile of strawberry ice-cream.

And I am not a pink-appreciating person. :P

I got you a fluffy little toy penguin, with big eyes and an unbelievably appealing expression. Ahhh.

My apartment is far too small to host Martha Stewart. Also I would have to buy everything and clean up. Plus I would be SO stressed having her in there and then every year people would expect me to have Martha Stewart cook for every occasion. I'm hyperventilating!!!!

A mug with my name on it? First you outpost me, then you get me something like THAT? This will only be good if I get amnesia, which is not real, it only exists on soap operas.


I have won you a seat at the charity lunch with Zach and Sendhil (see my avatar picture) it is for a good cause, worth $2,500 AND you get to have lunch with those 2 wonderful men!!!! For charity!

(So Mrs. O  you DON'T want my gift,I will go then  >:D hehe)

But are you paying for it? No, I didn't think you were. Besides, I already do this so this is hardly a gift to me.

I'm giving you an indoor, in-ground swimming pool and jacquzzi. I've also arranged for a mega-hot pool boy to come over once a week to clean your pool and jacquzzi. Included are all the pool furniture, toys and chemicals. If you rent, your landlord is happy to allow you to build it. There is also a shock fence built into the enclosure so that no nosy, annoying neighbors try to come over.

ETA:  Oh, cheeseburgers, I just realized you said "indoor."  Um...But it's not in the same building as my house.  Everyone will STILL be looking at me while I walk from the house to the pool!

It's also really warm and snuggly, and will keep you complany whenever you feel like it! If you don't feel like it, it doesn't mind being on it's own. It also gets on really well with your other pet(s).

You really should have checked with me first...I'll have to pay a pet deposit or take the thing to the pound! What about my chiiiiiiiiiiiiiiillllllllllllllldddddddddddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnnnnnn???? They'll HATE me!

I got you an iPhone with all the apps pre-downloaded and prepaid for 3 years. If they come out with a better one, just take it to the nearest AT&T and they'll upgrade it for free.

I got you a role in the next Bond movie...villain, fellow agent, or Bond Girl, your choice. And you'll get paid almost as much as Daniel Craig!

Here is the ultimate cell phone. It gets bars ANYWHERE, has unlimited talk-time, texting and a full QWERTY keyboard (i really want one like that). It also has an MP3  player and I've downloaded some of your favorite songs.

But now I'll spend all my time figuring out what to wish for, so I'll never get anything done!

Duh, you can use the first of your UNLIMITED wishes to say, "I wish I knew what to wish for," and then you'll know.

But then how will I know what to wish for NEXT?  I'll still waste HALF my time figuring out what to wish for.   ;)

I arranged to have a personal cook for you. He's going to be there every day, cook your favorite food. You don't have to pay him, and the food is free too!

What is it with everyone bashing my cooking?!  I've worked for years to perfect my cooking.

I've put together the ultimate chocolate package for you.  It has every type of chocolate in existance today, in every variety and shape, ect.  Enjoy!

I think there's someone on here who's actually fatally allergic to chocolate.  Just sayin'.  

Umm......I'm giving you a portal to another dimension, where it's always the weekend, always nice out, and you never run out of money from not working because it's always the weekend--just think of it as the antithesis to Narnia, without that nasty White Witch hanging around.  Better yet, this portal fits nicely into the back of your closet, so you don't have to deal with an unsightly hole in your wall.

But does it have talking animals? No? Well it's NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

I'm giving you the ability to speak to animals, just like Dr. Doolittle.

Well, I guess I'll be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGG time because we rent and I don't know when we'll be able to afford to buy a house in this economy. So really, you've given me nothing.

I got you a new DVD camera so you can film all your families vacations and have memories to last a lifetime.

Riiiight........like I'd want to film my family bickering around the Christmas tree after it falls over for the umpteenth time.  ::)

I'm going to give you a choice--you can either have an all-expenses-paid vacation anywhere you want, or a scholarship to the university of your choice, for the major of your choice, and if you already happen to have a Doctorate in that area, they've agreed to make up a new category for you--Deification.

MATCH my favourite outfits?!?!?!  Don't you realize that matching was SOOOOO last year?!?!?!  Now it's all about those butt-ugly hoodies with the obnoxiously loud patterns, usually worn with skinny jeans that are practically spray-painted on.  Anything that MATCHES with those things just makes them less obnoxious, thereby ruining the effect altogether.

How do I know you won't change your mind and cancel this check?  Tax free funds, indeed!  You're just waiting to report me to the IRS.  You're terribly mean to dangle this kind of gift in front of people.  This is the thanks get I for the two tickets to that concert you've been dying to see, and to offer my babysitting services?!

Babysitter?  BABYsitter?  My baby is 20 years old and doesn't need a babysitter any more, so really, those services are not needed.  Sheesh.   And a concert?  All the good concerts are in the middle of the week, and a 35 mile drive away from me.  I'd end up missing work the next day bcause I would get home so late.  And I can't see at night to drive. 

I got this just for you.  A lovely necklace of perfectly matched pearls.

An iPad. Really, could you fall any further into the consumerist phase, where every overpriced, bug-ridden, untested piece of technology is given some ridiculous 'I' name and treated like a work of absolute genius? What a waste of money, when already I have a better digital, web-interfacing notebook with greater warranty, memory and battery life. One that isn't from Macintosh at that - you know how I feel about the Windows/Mac debate. I can't install Linux and Emacs on an iPad!
And its white too. Do you know how hard it will be to keep that clean?

Here, I got you a DVD of your favorite movie with the case signed by your favorite actor in the movie - and I already made sure that it plays perfectly on all DVD players and computers regardless of what brand or location-type.

I will fund your new vacation cottage or home if you chose. Keep it small so you don't have to share or build it up to 5 bedrooms. It will come completely furnished and you can have it built where ever you would like at no expense to you. I will supply an acre of land and pay the property taxes on it for 10 years.

Pterry (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TerryPratchett) is an author, best known for the Discworld (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Discworld) series. 8)
=======================================================

A newt. Scintillating. ::) And what exactly, pray, am I supposed to do with a newt? Throw sticks for it? Teach it to die for the Queen? Take it to work on a wee collar and lead?

I give you a beautiful vintage Royal Enfield motorcycle.

Dude, most uncool.  I can't have the black tea because it's caffeinated and I can't have the green tea because it's bad for the baby.  What does that leave me?  Purple tea?

I know that my taste in gifts is horrible, so I created this laminated 'IOU' for you. You can use it to get me to pay for whatever you want, at any price. And if at any time (our lives) you decide you don't like the gift anymore for any reason, you can just tell me what you want instead and I'll get that for you too. You don't even have to give me a reason for why you wanted a new gift.

Oh, that's gonna go over real well with my landlord (not allowed) and my roommate (allergic). So now I'm gonna have to find a new apartment, a new roommate, and worry about taking care of a dog while working part-time, going to school full-time, and living on a very limited budget. Thaaaanks.

I know you have been very burdened with a lot of work, so I am going to be your personal assistant, while you take the week off, I booked a relaxing day for you, all expenses paid of course, but if you don't want to go...just lay around and do what YOU want! Also missed the old gift from the last page, someone was giving away Zachary Quinto, you can BORROW him... but he must be returned to me in semi pristine condition.

I also did all the work of arranging for the workers, made sure the managers can handle running everything you don't want to, and it makes enough to cover all its own costs including pay.

Not to mention my male-dominated industry - if I was seem carrying something like that around, I'd never hear the end of it. I'll stick to my backpack - it will keep my pride in tact and its bigger and its easier to carry around and its less likely to be damaged.

I bought you a perfect pair of shoes that will stay perfect no matter how much they are used/ chewed on by puppies etc. Did I mention they were magic too?
