Today is Christmas Eve.
So let us be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas.
But while getting caught-up in the holiday spirit is usually a good thing, our holidays always seem a little bit more dysfunctional thanks to the last minute shopping and in-laws coming into to town.
With most of us off work and trying to enjoy a couple days away from the office, all we want to do is relax and put our feet up. Chances of that actually happening though? Slim to none.
As we embark on yet another year of fake “thank you’s” for presents we’ll end up returning, here are some of the things that we know we just won’t be able to escape doing today—even though we try to avoid them the best we can.
There’s a reason why we buy people gift cards each year; because they’re easy as hell to wrap.
You grab one of those four-times recycled poinsettia-designed bags, some of that paper-mache like paper, and toss the damn things in there without any hassle.
But what will our girlfriends, wives and Mom’s like us to do? Wrap the presents they haven’t gotten to because they’re too busy running around doing God knows what.
Look, in less that 20 hours the paper will be ripped to shreds anyway, why do we need to spend more time wrapping it than it’ll take for it to be off the present?
