10/24/2008Christmas sucks...Part 2
So it is a friday, I decide to have lunch with my friend Steve (suspended mancard). Steve is moving out west in a few weeks, so I wanted to take him to lunch and hang out. After a great lunch at a place called BD's Mongolian BBQ
, we went to see if there was any decent movies playing. All of the movies suck or are chick flicks, so again my friend Steve tries to kick me in the nards..."You know man, Nordstroms is right over there, you could get that jacket for your wife and be a hero.."
I acted like I got all pissed and yelled "DUDE, I am a hero every payday... why the hell would I want to get her that stupid jacket anyways?"
So we laughed and I agreed to at least go look at it.... and what happened next clearly justifies all of my previous complaints about my so-called "better half".
We strolled on over to Nordstroms and man that place is rich looking. I think my credit card started to get warm upon stepping foot in that place. As soon as we stepped foot in the door, there was a lady running over and askiing if she could assist me."Yes, can you point me to where the rediculously overpriced womens winter jackets are?"
She said "Haha
...................*Looked me up and down*............. follow me."
We went up an escalator into the ladies outer wear, and some hot brunette greeted us."Hellooo!
(way too cheerful) How can I help you?""Yes, my ex-wife said she had a rediculously expensive North Face jacket on hold, and I am here to see if you will just give to me out of the kindness of your heart.."
She laughed (might have been a fake laugh and probably had her finger on the security buzzer) and asked the last name, so I told her."Oh she is MY customer!!"
She said, and I still don't know WTF that is supposed to mean.. then she got a funny look on her face and said:"She is your EX wife?""She will be if she continues to shop for $300 jackets..."
She laughed (again, probably fake) and went to go get the jacket that was supposed to be on HOLD
. (See Part 1 if you need a refresher)
The sales lady walked back over with a jacket, and set it down like the dang thing was made of gold. She checked a slip and then looked at me with a puzzled look and proceeded to try and tell me something was up by saying "Hmmm ... ummm
I cut to the chase and said "What, did the price go up? I saw something like this on Dateline once...""No, it is just that, well....... she already paid for it"
So I asked her to gift wrap it (since it was free) and while she was off doing that, we looked at the receipt.. *%^$&^$%&^$&^%$^#&# my wife paid for it a WEEK before she even asked me for it!!!
NOW DO YOU FEEL MY PAIN/FURY/DEPRESSION???
I looked at my friend Steve (revoked mancard), the guy who got me into this mess, what does he have to say???"Dude, that's messed up.."
Hahahahahahahahaahhahaah I can't win, ppl.
So I leave to go home, hot under the collar, but whatever, not much I can do about it now but try to surprise her with it in a few days and potentially get some lovin' out of the deal.
I go home and decide to hide the wrapped jacket someplace it would in no doubt be discovered until Christmas or sooner if I choose.... ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the ultimate hiding place in my house....
