After ten years of buying presents for my best friend, I have decided not to waste my money.
It didn’t matter what I bought her, within six months, it was either regifted or put away forever.
I’ve already been with her when she has exchanged a gift I got her. I love her dearly, but this is really upsetting. She would say she loved the gift, but she was biting her lip and you knew she was lying. Last week, I was invited over to her house for a party. I was inside the house helping her get the food out to the pool. I noticed that it was really humid inside. At first I thought the humidity was because the door had been opened and shut so often. Once I was inside, I realized it was humid in the bathroom and living room, and not just in the kitchen. I asked her about the humidity. She told me she had been having some problems with her thermostat lately. She knew it wasn’t the air conditioning unit because she just had a new one replaced. She told me she knew she should have bought a new thermostat when she got the new AC unit. While she was outside, I called my HVAC company and asked if they had a Smart Thermostat in stock. They not only brought it over, but the HVAC tech installed it that afternoon. I knew she was going to love this gift. However, if she does try to return it, I swear I will never buy her a never gift again.
