Lovely presents from dh today, but aibu and a bit of a cow to be disappointed that the receipt shows that he just ran in n grabbed my pressies at 6pm on the wy home from work?

It's not as though he didn't know it was VD, it's advertised everywhere for months.

its a marketing ploy, not a ritual expression of undying love. he did what he had to do. most people wouldn't have bothered.

YABU and ungrateful and ridiculous. Does it really matter when he bought it?

Does it matter what time he got them? At least he remembered and got you something.

YABU he thought enough to get you something.

it's all a load of tosh anyway

It's a man thing

you sounds really upset and stompy about it he got you something when did you want him to buy you gifts,

VerlaineChasedRimbauds Thu 14-Feb-13 21:42:10

That is certainly a very weird thing to be "really saddened" by. Yabu.

And a bit of a cow.

What an extremely distressing discovery this must have been for you.

I hope you can somehow get through it xxx

my dh bought me my christmas present christmas eve at 3 30 <shrug> people are busy last minute means nothing

ChocHobNob Thu 14-Feb-13 21:43:18

Is it really a man thing? I always leave buying presents until the very last minute.


MikeLitoris Thu 14-Feb-13 21:43:24

What difference does it actually make?

What difference would it make to you if he bought them last week?

C'mon missus...this really isn't a probem....

When would have been an acceptable time for him to buy you presents?

Beamur Thu 14-Feb-13 21:44:19

YABU. He made the effort and bought you nice presents on time - what's the problem?
DP bought mine today too, he was going into Leeds for work and went especially to a shop that is only there to get me something.

YABU. It's all a load of rubbish anyway. He got you something, probably because you seem quite hung up on it. You wanted a present, you got one.

tee hee hee grin

I know exactly what you mean though. Sometimes we have to accept though that most men are not going to be plotting months in advance what small but perfect gift would speak to us on a special day. There are probably quite a lot of local shops that would go out of business if it wasn't for lastminuteitis. <looks at her last minute gift, thinks WTAF was he thinking again and tries to feel happy he tried> wink
