Christmas present .......does she mean it?


Recommended Posts

Right so her indoors says at Friday tea , whats the point in buying each other a Christmas present this year ?

i have to hold my hand up and admit that in younger days i have fallen spectacularly foul of this feminine trickery  over birthdays etc

but this year does she really mean it , given that Christmas morning i cant just say "oops " and head off out the door with the pooch for free beer

Advice needed

Do not. I repeat. DO NOT get her nothing. It's a trap. 

You're welcome.

I've heard that load of Cobblers a few times from my Missus , luckily I have always seen sense and brought something.

You could try it , but is there anyone you could test your christmas dinner with before you eat it.

My mam said this to my owd fella once. on Christmas Eve me and him went for a pint around midday, I said what have you got Mam, he said nothing she said she doesn’t want nothing.

After putting the fear of god in him, he supped his pint a bit lively and went into the seventh circle of hell to get her some last minute presents.

My Mam had gone above and beyond buying him a surprise holiday. I had saved him looking like a right twat.

DON’T FALL FOR IT 

Godspeed my man

We did it for us last year as we had a baby due and a few other bits. I wasn’t sure. I purchased a few bits to play it safe.  She meant it though hehe

To have an Odd Couple you need a Felix and an Oscar - two Oscars just doesn't work.

...It's moot point now, after Fat tat peddler Ashley's takeover and bankruptcy, but years ago I think it was L/H White alerted everyone that House of Fraser did a pre-Christmas sales - piece of piss, order stuff online, pay online, mooch into Manc on the 23rd, pick up - few pints on Shambles or in The Old Monkey and train home. I nearly fell for this trick once - she must've took me for a dickhead. Did the above, massive 'Daisy' gift set with big bottle of stink and some sexy apparel. Old Monkey and some bitter, home. Come Christmas Day I called her bluff and pretended I'd stuck to the agreement for a while - her words said 'good' her face told a different tale. I got a joke gift of a Gorilla onesie and some aftershave - she'd rowed back too.

Don't fall for it.

Shops on Daubhill are open Christmas Day - as one year, birdless, I ended getting pissed around town Christmas Eve day, when I was supposed to be shopping - my family had an eclectic range of gifts bought for them the morning of the 25th on Daubhill from the likes of Faisals, Kolas, Babaloo Pan Centre etc. 😄

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You could always risk it and report back - get booze and you can always sup it yourself - gift it if you're in shit.

Put a score in a card. Job's a good 'un.

If you cave you must pretend you didn't buy owt for a while - toy with her and get a taste of the world of pain you'd have been in had you not deciphered her female contra-speak and fell into that carefully dug and disguised punji-pit
