The post in which Jerry gets thrown under the bus…in a loving way of course

My birthday is in exactly one month from today and on that day I’ll be 27.  Why am I telling you this?  Because it is pivotal to the story and now you know and can’t forget.  (May 12th for those of you that can’t read a calendar or count)

I am a difficult person to buy gifts for because I never know what I want and only know what I don’t want.  So, this has been one of the expectations that has been hard to have met.  Now I just try to have really low expectations, but it is hard because my birthday is important to me.

Jerry has been doing a great job of figuring out the gift mystery this year, but he purposed something the other night that absolutely 100% goes against gift giving.  He was going to buy me a present for my birthday that he already promised to get me for Valentine’s day.

Why hasn’t he got the previous present you ask?  Well it is because it is the Nike+ Fuel Band and it is still out of stock.  STILL!  One had to pre-order it, and apparently they are never ever going to have it in stock again.


Anyhoo, since Jerry still hasn’t been able to get it he thought he could transfer the gift from Valentine’s day to my birthday. 

Dear Men of the world,

This is never allowed. EVER.



Men here are three rules about gifts:

  1. The gift can’t ever be transferred.  The gift is always outstanding until received.
  2. If the gift is no longer available buy something different.
  3. If the gift becomes available later please refer to rule number 1.


P.S. When I was taking the above picture from Nike I discovered they now have the Fuel Band in my size.  Yay!  So in two weeks time I will have one in my possession. muahhahahah!
