Redneck Gift Receipt

Every year I have grand ideas of how sophisticated my gift wrapping will be.

And then I set out my stuff and actually start wrapping.
"I make it so pretttty!"

There are chimpanzees who work better with scissors and tape than I do.

I was wrapping quickly this year. Trying frantically to get every mother in law, father in law, sister in law, niece, brother in law, sister, mom, dad, grandma, etc gift wrapped. Then I did it. Put on the last piece of tape on my brother-in-law's gift. Uh oh. The gift receipt. I didn't include it. I could unwrap the gift, tape on the receipt, and re-wrap it.

But that would take more work.

*moment of genius strikes me* Some might call this a moment of Redneck. I prefer moment of genius.

I folded up the receipt* and taped it to the back of the package. PRESTO.

*The "gift receipt" is actually just a regular reciept because I forgot to tell the Miejer cashier that I needed a GIFT receipt. So my sister's husband could easily unfold it and see that his Adidas cologne set me back $9.99. He could also see that I had bought an Angry Birds game for my son, socks for my husband, and probably some random thing like bananas or maxi pads.

  1. I love it! A guy probably won't take a second look at the receipt. If it had been a lady though....

  2. Funny! Love this post!

    Thanks for your comment at Reading Confetti!

  3. I hardly ever bother with gift receipts anyway! But that is too funny. :-)

  4. HAH! I love it. I also hate wrapping. I don't even bother to include bows.

  5. Hilarious (and genius, in my opinion)!
    I doubt he noticed unless you pointed it out. It probably got lost in all the torn wrapping paper.


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
