    Charlene should never bring up how much it costs or what discounts she got for it. All of it is tacky! I don’t think Cathy really wanted to know any of it, she was just making those comments to mean that she thought the gift was nice. (Although I think that she could have just said that and said nothing about monetary value).
    And it has nothing to do with Christmas. People say that for birthday gifts or if you complement someone on something they’re wearing. Somehow people think that they need to brag about the deals they got.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    Cathy’s thinking, Charlene, you’re just using me, aren’t you? Racking up them points, aren’t you? Some friend!

    -

    Many of us were raised to show our appreciation for a gift by telling someone that they ’shouldn’t have’, and ’it’s too much’, in order to say we really like something (especially if we DON’T like it). I know my brother and sister-in-law didn’t teach their kids to do that, and I prefer the kids to just say ‘thanks’. But there are still many out there like my parents generation, who say ’it’s too much!’ automatically as a way of saying ‘thanks’.

    I agree with lightenup, that it’s all very tacky. EYEROLL! Anyway, good afternoon, Cathy clan!

    I wonder if Cathy drove herself crazy after work last night, running around looking for the perfect, last-minute gift for Charlene . . . or if she just stuck to the “No gifts” agreement the two of them originally made, went home and did nothing more than have dinner then poured herself a nice glass of wine, put her feet up and read a really good book instead [which is what I would have done]?

     

    Hi, rgcviper!

     

    Hello and Happy Wednesday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone’s having a really nice day today.

    My husband never knew what to buy me for Christmas or my birthday ,so he would tell me to buy something for myself. I would. When he asked what did " he buy me", I’d show him and say “Oh Darling, you shouldn’t have”. :-)

    Better go for one of each, Cathy. Just be sure to attach an [eye-roll] to the “Congratulations” card.


    HI, MOM. Greetings, Clan.

    P.S. Today’s “Cleats” comic made me think of the “Cathy” Clan for some odd reason … :)
