why do this
because you've forgotten to take it off
how can you be that unperceptive
i didn't this this but this could be a reason if this is how how you feel about this
you clearly did this that
i have this'd this though? weird huh
a monetary value will have been attributed, you either bought it in a shop for a few quid more than it may have cost elsewhere.
never understood the hangup to this one either way.
they've spent on you
i d k i find it weird
I leave them on to let people know how little I care about them
yeah, I got it on offer for 79p. happy birthday.
conversation how much it cost you
if I've for whatever reason forgotten to take it off
to show how much danger I was willing to put myself through for the other person's happiness
I used to work in an upscale jewellery & gift store, and one morning this really shitty old lady came in and bought a rather expensive set of silver drink coasters. She was incredibly rude and bossy with me while making the purchase, and she wanted me to box & gift wrap the coasters because she was heading straight to the post office to send them to their recipient.
I took the coasters into the little room where we did the gift wrapping, which also happened to be the room that had all the price tagging stuff. I took the tags off the coasters - they were like $300 or something for the set of six - and stuck a $5 sticker on each one, then put a big red tacky-ass "50% off" sticker on the box itself. Then gift wrapped it & sent her on her way.
Who was dying/old and very ill and it hurt their feelings? Just cause she was unpleasant doesn't mean the recipient was. It's done now of course and maybe you received enough information in serving her to know it was ok.
I'm not sure anyone sends a $300 set of silver coasters to someone who's dying. But at the time I guess I thought that the cheap price tags would reflect badly on the old cow rather than hurt the feelings of the person receiving the gift. I mean a nice set of coasters is a nice set of coasters, right?
