Me? A resource?

It's funny how men make fun of you for reading too many fashion magazines and spending too much money, but they will come to you when they need advice for Christmas presents for their GFs.

That's right Narm!

Because I don't hide the fact that I'm a label whore (not completely though), two guys in the office came up to me ask me what to get their girlfriends. They had really great ideas but needed some advice on where to buy.

(At this point, I realized how complicated girls can be when buying gifts. I'll admit it, I'm probably one of those. I want the BF to be a mind reader but he's not and really shouldn't be.)

Anyway, I helped both of them find the perfect gifts for their significant others this Christmas or at least I tried. Both bought gifts when they were "listening" to their girls.

Giftless guy -"Allison, I need to get this ____."
Me - How do you know she wants it? Are you sure
Giftless guy - "Well, she said it passing. So if I get it, it shows I was actually listening to her that day."

Well, guys are listening, just watch what you say.

I take back all the bad things I said about you. Thanks for saving X-Mas. Or at least making sure I get to stuff her stocking.

I think a guy should know what to get a girl. I have no mercy when it comes to that stuff. All you gotta do is listen a couple of the billion times she says "i want that" cmon!
