    So, last night the wife says its time to wrap gifts. I'd rather take a whuppin, but she does not give me that option.
    I clear my desk off, get paper, tape and scissors all laid out. Right off the bat, the friggin tape dispenser breaks, stabbing me in the index finger. The wife gives me the stocking stuffers for my daughter. WTF???? Rubber balls in a mesh bag, attached to a piece of cardboard. Paddle ball set, etc. A roll of tape later, its all covered up.

    Maybe I could take some pointers from mtnman. I bought a windup bedclock for the grandmother so she wouldn't have to constantly borrow mine.

    I spent a looong time wrapping this one. Took about 30 minutes and about 3 tries. I hate wrapping presents, but this one was important . So, in conclusion, wrapping presents is not for me

    I always get stuck with wrapping. Better than having to brave the stores I guess. I spend 3 hours wrapping, and that's it.

    Does it count if the gifts you give are loosely wrapped in plastic bags that say Wal Mart on them and have convenient carry handles?
