So this year, as in the past few, my family is trying to agree on a set price limit for everybody to adhere to, so those of us who are doing poorly will not feel guilted into spending too much by those of us who are doing well.
I think its a load of crap. Even when I was under the weather, financially speaking, I didn't feel pressed into dragging other people's good-heartedness down with me. Hell, all the more reason for them to go hog wild on my gift, in my greed-inspired humble opinion.
Now this year, I will have been working for a couple of months, and ye olde checkinge accounte will be ripe with fruit, so I want to make up for the lean years. I'm facing stiff resistance from family on this front, so in the spirit of not generating a bickering match I have pretended to agree.
The only question now is....
Should I cheat and ignore the gift cost limit?
