How A Man Can Screw Up The Simplest Of Tasks!…PLUS, Giveaway Winners Announced!
My twins are 12 months & 1 day old.
Ok…we are always last minute buyers as far as cards are concerned. Sometimes we are known for getting cards on the way to a birthday party or special event.
So when I kindly asked the hubster the day before the twins special day to get the cards since he was going right by there, it was no big surprise that while wrapping gifts the morning of, is when I first took a gander at them, to go and fill them out. After all, they were only cards, who on Earth can screw that up…right?
Well, take a looksy at the photos below. I’ll tell you who could mess up a simple task…A MAN, that’s who! I looked at the fronts. Bad enough they both were blue to start with. (Light bulb flashing? Guess his bulb was blown at that time.) The envelopes, one was pale blue one was tan, and I said to myself..’Not what I would have chosen, but I guess girls can have blue more so then boys can have pink. (Socially more acceptable).
It should have said 1st birthday DAUGHTER, but no mention of anything like that on the front, just a ’1′, like it could have been from anybody, for anybody. STRIKE 2…impersonal. Totally would have went personal, pink, and girlie, but who am I?
And then I open the card. One was completely generic. A card you would give to anybody’s child, but the other said this. Take a gander.
Enlarged for easy viewing.
BOY?? Now how on Earth does one mess that up? I’m one who spends time in the store, picking out the perfect card, especially when it’s for one (two) of my own, for such a special occasion, and this is what he comes home to me with? Did one of my babies grow a penis overnight? I think not.
I showed him, he laughs and goes, ‘They didn’t have much of a selection.’ What kind of excuse is that? Especially, when another card store is literally right across the parking lot from where he was at. Now would a woman..a mother, ever have let anything like that happen? Would we not have sashayed our way across the street?
Ok, so maybe you forgot your reading glasses, but that doesn’t mean much when I have seen you read cards without any issues before. Besides, you bought impersonal blue cards…case closed. Too bad I don’t know anybody with baby boys to give them to when they turn 1. Bummer. Yeah, and I waste money..NOT! Men really are the money wasters, they just don’t realize it! This is a small, yet perfect example, of such.
