I went to a Bot Mitzvah last Saturday - it was for a daughter of a good friend.
Yes - I would consider him a good friend or I wouldn't have gone because of my knee.
Anyway my daughter and grandson went too. Now I gave the girl a nice check. My daughter - and while I admit this may not be right - she gave her some perfume from Victoria's Secret that she had received as she is allergic to perfume. Plus she in on an extremely tight budget.
Anyhow our friend called her and told her his daughter hated it. He said I guess we're good enough friends that he could tell he that. He wanted to know if she had received this as some cheesy gift or did she buy it and wanted the receipt.
Well right then and there she should have just told him, but couldn't. She was so embarrassed and humiliated. She mumbled something like she will look for it and would get back to him.
She didn't want him to think she didn't care about his daughter - she does - she's just having to budget her money. And thought that Victoria's Secret would be something a young girl would like.
She just called him back and told him she couldn't find it and to try to take it back.
What do y'all think?
And thank you Jerry for this one -
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
.....Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!
