    Long before Mother's Day, my husband asked me what I wanted. I said, "I'd really like a new digital camera." I found one in the sale paper and showed it to him. It had everything I wanted and it was even purple, my favorite color. What did I get for mother's day? I got a flower arrangement! Don't get me wrong, they were beautiful and PURPLE, but not what I asked for and probably cost the same price! I think he knew my feelings were hurt (his own fault) so a few days ago, he said he'd order one online. He asked me again for the exact description and I wrote it down for him. Today, the camera arrives and it's nothing like the one I wanted. It has less capacity, not as many features and it's BLUE! I said, "Oh no, they sent the wrong one." He says, "Nope, that's the one I ordered, I really liked it." Needless to say, the argument was underway. He's gone to work now, but before he left he called me an ingrate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell me I'm not wrong. PLEASE :witch:

    Hmmmm i always think its the thought that counts, especially when it comes to men buying gifts, there not shopping experts like us ladies. I think you should tell him you like it as he brought it for you!

    You can always sell it on ebay in a month or so and buy the one u want haha

    The thing is...he's a great shopper, better than me. I HATE shopping. I guess my point was this...why even bother to aske what I want if you're only going to buy what you want? It was a waste of my time and got my hopes up. Sometimes it's like talking to a brick wall. LOL

    I just can't even explain how mad I am. Not even about the camera so much, but that he had the nerve to call an ingrate. Maybe I did overreact, but I think my hormones are raging. LOL My period is 20 days late and I feel like I could kill someone....maybe him if he continues with the name calling. LOL

    Come on Dan, I need a man's opinion on this matter. If your wife asked for a specific gift or item, would you do your best to get it or would you just buy something you liked?

    I know that my husband would get what I asked for. And if he altered the request it would only be because it was better than the one I wanted.

    That is SOOOO funny that you just said the exact words he told me..."I thought this one was a better camera, so I didn't think you'd mind." LOL Am I in the freak'n twilight zone? LOL BTW I just posted in the OVER 18 section and now I can't believe what I said. It seemed like a good idea until after I posted it. LOL
