Knowing that Megan has a birthday party to go to this week, I planned ahead and made a trip to Target on Saturday. I picked up a gift card, then went over to the gift wrap section to buy a little gift bag - because it's more fun to unwrap a gift card, in my opinion. On the way I passed some cute stickers and thought to myself, that will be nice ... to open the gift bag and find a gift card AND some stickers. Yay!! Then I found a birthday card and was on my way.
When I got home I showed Megan what I'd purchased for her friend. She said, "Okay thanks. Oooh! Cute stickers!!"
The next thing I know, she's taken the stickers out of their package.
Me: Why did you take those out of the package?
Megan: I thought you bought them for me to decorate the outside of the birthday card envelope.
Me: No, I thought it would be fun if she received some stickers with her gift card.
Megan: Oh, sorry.
Me: That's okay, I should have said something.
Megan: Here, there's still 1 sheet of stickers left that we can wrap up.
A few minutes later ...
Me: So should we use all 3 colors of tissue paper in the gift bag?
Me: Okay, where's the gift card?
Megan: Inside the birthday card.
Me: Inside the sealed birthday card?
Me: Well, I guess there's no need for the gift bag and tissue paper then, is there?
Megan: What about the stickers?
Me: We're not going to wrap up a left-over sheet of stickers.
Next time I'm just buying the gift card - period.
