Birthday Returns

No matter how many times you tell relatives NOT to get your teenage boys clothes as birthday gifts, you still end up with a mountain of clothes your boys refuse to wear. Aunt X and Uncle Y are convinced they know what’s “cool” and insist on the pajamas with the Scooby Doo cartoons. Grandma Z knows best, “of course the boys will wear the trousers…they’re great for any occassion”. Sure, any occasion where a teenage boy wears “trousers”.

“They’re not that bad,” I say.

“Dad, you got to be kidding right??!!!!”

And now for the fun part. The returns. Running from store to store, trying to dig up receipts, arguing that the clothes were not on sale when purchased. You know the drill. Many a book written on the topic. Next time, please, when the kids say they just want money…let’s honor that request.
