    Because it's his girlfriend and we'd be bad friends if we didn't get her something, at least thats what he thinks.

    I'm fine with buying her a gift, but we could have kept it to $20, thats all I spent on my brothers this year coz I didn't have the money.

    OH, He has this thing that you cant buy cheap gifts for people.
    We ended up spending $30 on Steves (Dont know why I was calling him S, no one here knows him lol) gf's birthday present, OH was going to spend around $80.

    The thing is I really dont think Steve cares how much we spend, it's not like we tell him what it cost.

    I used to think it was important to buy people presents all the time, so I can't critcise. I changed over time once I realised I was just trying to get people to "like" me. They took the presents, but it didn't get me any respect, nor did they like me at all. Now I just do stuff for people because I want to, not because I think it will get them to like me.

    My FIL was shocking with presents. I never got any. One day I decided eff you, and his birthday went forgotten by me. He was on that phone so quick going off, asking me how could I dre forget his brithday. I told him the same way he had forgotten me all those years. Lol. He got the message.
    MIL is the same, she's disgusting. I finally ended it all a couple of years ago. I sent her back for HER birthday a pair of grotty old staockings covered in cobwebs that she had sent ME. She got the message too. I learnt to never let anyone give me crap again. I respect myself, if they can't, adios.

    I can't afford to spend lots of money on presents either, but I do put some effort into finding something that people will hopefully like. I don't care about receiving presents either, I'd rather be given a bag of dog food or a bag of chaff for the horse!

    I conked out for 2 hours this afternoon! That's a bit more than a nanna nap! Woke up feeling tired, but dragged myself outside and hopped on the ride-on mower and did the dog yard and out the front of the house. At least I DID something! Dawg I hope my blood tests show what's wrong with me!
