    Wouldn’t you just kill to see what’s happening with Steinbauer now after he snagged the sympathy card?

    More like “Sorry you didn’t marry the GIRL your parents told you…..”
    I know a few women who would be THRILLED if their men made cards for them….
    Any women out there have opinions?Let’s get some real life perspective……..

    Put the blame where it belongs: after all, the card store should order more cards! He even went a day early.

    Ralph must be a cousin to Homer Simpson. Same mentality, family resemblance, married similar girls. Twins separated at birth?

    @davbart92663 There’s actually a “Simpson’s” episode where Homer is reading the comics and says, “Ah, the dad in Drabble. He’s like an unfunny version of me.”

    I used to work for American Greetings, the card company. Typically we were supposed to come in the day after each holiday to remove the cards from that holiday but I learned to not remove the Valentine’s cards til about 5 days after because some male would show up wanting a card for his wife or significant other. He’d act desperate, and I could tell he was in the doghouse with her. On another occasion this elderly man came in wanting an anniversary card. I told him where they were and he went and grabbed one without even reading them. That really ticked me off. I thought this woman has cooked his meals, washed his clothes, borne their children, cleaned their home, etc. probably for over 25 years and he can’t even take the time to pick out a card for her! As for Ralph making one with crayons, that’s rather sweet and I think she ought to forgive him. If every man who waits til the last minute ends up in the doghouse there will be a lot of men there!

    I’ve mentioned before, on here, my wife cried when she didn’t get one of my homemade cards on a birthday. They are just corrugated cardboard from whatever amazon box is lying around and my stick figure drawings in black magic marker. She has kept every one that I ever gave her. Honeybunch is wrong on this one.

    l worked in the card department in a store and you are right. Always men coming in a day or two after desperate for a card. We never ran out, though.
    I would love to get a hand-made card. I make and receive some hand-made cards and they are so appreciated. They never get thrown out.

    Honeybunch reminds me of Mom…she also wanted everything store bought…Dont know why….Myself, I’d love for someone to take the time and draw and write something just from their hearts,( just for me) not someone elses…

    If a hubby forgets Valentines day, just tell her, Unlike the original St. Valentine, it’s nothing to lose your head over. Nothing says love like decapitation.

    You should have included Fred Flintstone and don’t forget Ralph Cramden… of “To the Moon Alice, fame.”
