I'm not allowed to have cats in my rental unit so that's no good.

I getting you a holiday in a Welsh castle.

Fantastic.  Now I have to get a new passport-and get one of those rotten photos taken.

Here's the honeymoon you've been waiting a lifetime for.

Thanks. Another trip I have to do all the planning and legwork for. And just what do you expect me to do with my toddler while I'm on this trip?

BTW - I got you this beautiful new picture frame.

Are you saying my pictures that are currently hung in dollar-store frames are just not pretty enough for your delicate eyes?


Lookee! I got you a can of your favorite soda!

Only a can?  You couldn't spring for a 2-liter bottle?  Not even a six-pack?

Here's a gift certificate for a free dinner at your favorite restaurant.

You want me to get out of my jammies and go out when I have a TERRIBLE case of the flu?  You could at least arrange to have them deliver!

I got you a bag of Black Jelly Beans.

Thanks. I guess I can use these to throw at the chipmunks who keep raiding my garbage cans.

I got you a complete box set of the Harry Potter novels, all signed by JK Rowling with personal inscriptions made out to you!

Because what I need is MORE books in the piles on the floor since I'm out of bookshelf space.  Reeeeeaaaalllllllly thoughtful - I'll think of you when I have to take the dogs to the vet because they broke their little heads when the piles of books tipped over and landed on them.   ::)

Here, I got you this beautiful conflict-free 2 carat diamond necklace, lovingly hand-set in platinum on a 24" platinum chain.

You know I can never wear that...every thief and mugger in the world would take one look at me and drool uncontrollably. And, of course, it's not like I can exactly wear a thing like that out to Denny's. What kind of budget do you think we're on? AND of course you know I'm allergic to every precious metal except for unobtainium. Bu thanks. Really.
