So You Want to be a Wrap Superstar?

24 Dec

I have been wrapping presents at my mother’s house for 8 hours.  I can’t take it anymore.  If we don’t finish soon I’m going to hang myself with scotch tape . . .

    Jesus, how many people did you have to buy for?

    Merry Christmas,

    We have a sickness in our family that causes us to spend like the end of the world is coming. You should see the amount of presents that my niece and nephew have-and those gifts are just from me and my mom. We have 13 people coming over tonight (we open our gifts at midnight) and everyone gets at least 1 million presents. -CS

    Thanks for reminding me that I have to wrap some gifts!

    Um…but I actually like to do it!

    I usually enjoy it too, but 3 hours one night, and then 8 hours the next is just a little too much for me. -CS

    At least you can find the tape. That’s the first thing I lose when wrapping.

    Merry Christmas!

    Let me introduce you to my no-fail system. You need a little box where you put the scissors, tape, tags and the pen-this box will go on your right. Any time you take something out of the box, you immediately put it back when you’re through. It’s so much easier this way! -CS

    P and I HATE to wrap gifts. We took ours to one of the malls and had the gift wrapping booth do all of ours. Well worth the cost to us. What would have taken us hours, took them only 15 minutes. All the money went to sending kids with cancer to camp.

    That is very smart! -CS

    Gift bags are the way to go.

    They really are. So much easier to just shove some wadded up tissue paper into a bag, throw in the gift, and then throw in some more tissue paper. -CS

    I sent my gifts for my family along with my brother, who is traveling to be with them (since he is a better son than I am). Since you can’t bring wrapped presents on a plane, I didn’t have to wrap them!

    Hurray for safety regulations!

    You are so very clever! Next time I might ship them to you and then you can have him fly back here and give them to me all wrapped up. -CS

    Have a Merry Christmas and just wrap the presents in duct tape it’s silver and holiday like.

    Next year I’m not even going to bother wrapping them. I’m just going to claim that I’m saving the environment and isn’t it enough that I bought them something. -CS

    Comin up in the world
    Don’t trust nobody
    Gotta keep the ribbon stocked up constantly

    Ribbon is important. I am a bitchy ribbon user. That means that I like to double knot everything and watch people struggle to get the gift open. -CS

    I always like the idea of wrapping presents – until I actually have to do it and then remember I’m shite at it. ..

    It wouldn’t be so bad if it was just every once in awhile. But after about 8 boxes, it starts to get really freaking old. -CS

    Awww how sad, you should embrace the wrapping like meditation lol one of the best jobs i loved the most that ive ever had was as a holiday wrapper at a huge department store! But you made it through anyway right? Good Job lol

    Being paid to do it is totally different than being forced to do it. -CS
