Where's the Receipt?

How was Christmas? I don't want to make you sad, but it's over. Did you get anything good?  I feel like you're saying ‘yes’, but with a hint of ‘no’. It's kind of like those tortilla chips with lime; it doesn't look like the lime is there, but it's there. And similarly, I don't hear it in your tone, but the ‘no’ is there. So what will you do with the gifts you don't like? Today, tomorrow, this week sometime, you will have to return them. Now I know what you're saying. You don't want to deal with customer service. It'll be ok. Tell 'em Charlie sent you. They won't understand what you mean, but you'll smile. Now, we get to the question of the day. Where's the receipt? I don't know. I got lucky this year. I don't feel like returning cash or gift cards. But what about what you got? Socks, a sweater, High School Musical 3 on DVD, it all must go back. Does Target do refunds? Kohl's? Wherever you go you may need the receipt. So how do you get it? You could ask the person for it, if you never plan on speaking to them again. You could look for it, if you want to be nosy and never plan on speaking to the person again. Whatever you decide, you may lose a friend or a relative. Or, you can ask them and they might surprise you and only be slightly offended. I wish you the best of luck. It's a touchy subject. Could go either way. And then I'll say 'ya win some, ya lose some', depending on the outcome. (unintentional rhyme) Well, have a good time at the store, and if I don't talk to you beforehand, Happy New Year!! It will be 2012 on Sunday, just like Mayans predicted. Happy Holidays, and I’ll see you at the beginning of the calendar.
