Even a broken clock is right twice a dayAugust 17, 2007
In my case I have two.
Why you ask?
Well, they were wedding gifts and I liked them. Both.
But this brings me to two pet peeve topics today. Two clocks, two vents.
Why do they always run out so quickly? And why do Fa’s toys and my clocks need so many of them to function? And why do I never have enough in my house? And how long will these particular clocks say these incorrect times on them before I break down and get more batteries?
and B) Birthday parties.
No, not just any random birthday party. I’m specifically talking about people with more than one (3) kid(s) who have two parties for each kid. That’s six parties!
Do I have nothing to do all year but buy gifts for and attend your kid’s parties?
That is so unfair. Especially when I only have one kid. Who only has one party. Or in Fa’s case. No party for friends this year. Just family.
Now, I’m not being selfish. I don’t care if Fa ever gets a gift for her birthday, she’s spoiled enough. It’s not that. They don’t even need to reciprocate. (Even though they do.) But why are certain people thinking that they can expect that much from one family.
Think about it. Three kids. Two parties for each kid. You can’t go to one party empty handed can you? Plus, the time it takes to actually be at these festivities. Then, there’s holidays and such. That’s gifts half the year from me.
Now, before you get your bloomers in a bunch. (I know you’re out there and you have never commented up until this point) I’m not complaining about the amount of kids these people have. It’s their choice and their bank account.
And I choose to keep it the way I keep it.
You can keep it however you want. I’m not against the amount of children this family has and wants to have.
To each her own ovaries. Or uterus. I bet hers is polyp free.
It’s not even the parties per se. It’s the amount of parties for EACH kid. C’mon.
One each, please.
I beg you.
My The Pro’s wallet begs you.
