It is no Longer the Thought that Counts
L et me correct the title of this article. It never has been the thought that counts if you are a woman. Now do not send me hate mail because I am stating the truth. I am even going to use a resource that has nothing to do with me to prove my point.
OK some gifts that we receive are odd, inappropriate, and curiosities. So, what! What ever happened to it is the thought that counts? Have people ever considered that those who gave used items have no money and still would like to participate in the season of giving?
There has been, is now, and more than likely will be in the future discussions about women and marring up, being money grubbers, marring for money, etc. I am not saying that all women are this way, nor am I saying that no men are this way but the more one pays attention the more the polarization of this behavior is noticed. Can anyone guess which gender more outwardly appears to be interested in money in some manner shape or form? Women. Here is an article from MSNBC” that demonstrates this with crystal clarity. As of today 06 December 2008 ALL BUT ONE of the complainers are women. Sorry girls I did not make this up, in fact you did. Women came out in droves to make public how cheap, petty, and unthoughtful some gifts are. WOW, if this does not prove how women are wired nothing will. No one held a gun to these women’s heads and stated reply to this article and make yourself appear to be a money grubber, they all volunteered. I would not hesitate to bet that if someone were to interview these same women publically and ask them if the price tag on the gift was more important then the fact that someone thought to get them a present, they would answer EVERY time that the though is more important, knowing full well that they are lying. I am amazed how many so willingly behind the mask of anonymity are willing to admit that they are grinchs yet want everyone else to believe that they are not, confounding, really.
This type of information never ceases to amaze me.
To all those that complain about Christmas Gifts HUMBUG!
To all the rest MERRY CHRISTMAS! It really is the thought that counts!
