Love Language

‘Tis the season. . .

. . . for a motherload of marketing emails.

Everyone has something to sell me this holiday season.

Little do they know that I’VE ALREADY BOUGHT ALL MY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.

Because of this, I find the incessant stream of store emails incredibly annoying and I am taking the time to unsubscribe from the grievous offenders.

I estimate I’m getting about 1,000 emails a day, from all sorts of companies trying to sell me stuff.

I have a friend Joe, who doesn’t participate in gift exchanges.

He thinks they’re too commercial and encourage spending money on things that aren’t really necessary.

This is true.

My dad doesn’t need a coffee maker and my mom doesn’t need more wine, but I can’t help myself.

I love gifting.

It’s my love language, or something silly like that.

Nevertheless, all these emails are turning me into a Scrooge.

I can only hope that the emails will slow down once Cyber Monday is over with.

  1. I purchased a few gifts today. Alas, I paid for shipping because the dates given me were Dec 9-Feb 6. February!!!!!! With my fortunes, I knew if I didn’t pay, they’d not arrive til after my birthday and they weren’t even for me!!
