Bitch, don’t gimme that shit, why you lying?

How many people do you know whose birthdays are in March? I know a lot. Both of my sisters are born in March, and so is my niece.  Coming up with 3 different birthday presents for 3 very different people – that’s a challenge.

I find that kids are the easiest to buy presents for. They are usually happy with whatever they get, be it a Barbie doll, a plush unicorn or a cute dress. Adults are harder. They care about stupid things like price tags, quality, and they usually buy their own clothes.  Also, there’s this major difference in how they answer simple questions:

You: what do you want for your birthday?
kid: I want *sums up a never-ending list of items*

That’s right. Kids tell you exactly what they want. When asking adults the same question, it’s more like:

You: what do you want for your birthday?
adult person: Oh, I don’t know.

Or they might say something ridiculous like “a house” or, in worst case: “nothing”. Except, that’s a lie. If you don’t get them anything, they get upset. So even though they tell you they don’t want anything, you still have to get them something.

Every time someone replies “nothing”, I swear there’s a little mean cunt from the hood living in my head going: “bitch, don’t gimme that shit, why you lyin’?”.  The worst part is: once my birthday comes around, I say something even worse: the typical “oooh, you don’t have to get me anything”. YEAH RIGHT…

    Enig, er så my av det i min familie og min vennekrets. For typen derimot, den familien er så flink til å si hva de ønsker seg! Og det er ikke fordi de ønsker seg masse, tvert imot. Det er gjerne praktiske ting, ting de faktisk trenger og den slags. De VET hvor mye lettere og kjekkere det er å gi bursdagsgave, og ikke minst å få bursdagsgave (det samme gjelder for julen for øvrig), at dette er godt etablert. Så jeg prøver å være mer som dem. Og det er ikke slik at vi slenger ut en liste med ting vi ønsker eller forventer oss, men når noen spør hva vi ønsker oss har vi tenkt igjennom det for å gjøre det bedre for alle parter 🙂

      Typen din sin familie = goals!
      Kjenner jeg må bli bedre på akkurat den deler der selv, så jeg setter det opp som et forsinket nyttårsforsett. Haha 🙂
