Men are clueless. That’s clearly nothing new. But I find that I am continually underwhelmed for certain events/holidays throughout the year. I like to play the “oh, I don’t need anything” or “don’t get me anything” game. And you know what? I don’t get anything. And then my feelings are hurt and I’m angry, but it’s not really fair to be angry because he’s actually just followed what you said. I know you want to think that they should know better, but they don’t (I know I’m making a generalization here, so if you don’t have this problem, congratulations.) Pretending that you don’t want anything to avoid sounding like a brat, or pretending like you don’t care when you actually do is stupid. It has taken me 29 years to realize that this game gets you nowhere. So perhaps I am the one who’s clueless after all. Just tell them what you want. You’re not a brat. You work hard everyday (not that they don’t) and you deserve to be treated to something to something special once in a while. And while we’re on the topic, if you think they’ve forgotten to make a reservation, they probably have. It’s better to remind them the day before then wait and see the next day and be pissed off.
