Re: For the Bus Driver or the Lady @ the Post Office

It is symbolic.  You might consider thanking someone in your life who makes a difference.

 

How you choose to, or not, is completely personal.  And the thought police have not yet figured out how to steal my brain.

Re: For the Bus Driver or the Lady @ the Post Office

Just my thoughts.  One would have hoped the Q would have gotten “the memo” that most people find suggestions of giving quite expensive gifts to endless lists of people a joke.  I guess it requires some outsider to offer ideas.  If I were selling a lady’s robe, one might suggest some options besides one’s family.  For instance, you could call a nursing home.  Ask staff if any lady is forgotten during the holidays - or is in need of a robe she cannot afford.  And get the right size to fit this person.

Please any of you, IF you give your letter carrier a gift, please video it for us!

 

Can you just see, say it is a man named Joe, opening the door to postal carrier Joe, who is holding your QVC box and saying "JOE!  You can keep that package!  It's a robe!  It's FOR YOU!"

 

I want to be able to enjoy the look on Joe's face when you say that!!!!!   Woman LOL  Woman Embarassed

 

Joe will thank you,hand the box to you and say he can't accept gifts over $20 and RUN back to his truck.

Yep, thats a good idea.....we do that at our office....we "adopt" a nursing home and those that may be forgotten at holiday time....and in gift suggestions for residents, robes are always on the list....

Re: For the Bus Driver or the Lady @ the Post Office

I got one of those robes for me.  They must have ordered a gazillion of them as they've practically been giving them away for a couple of months.  I must say it's one of the most beautifully packaged items I've ever received.  Mine is still sitting in its box as I can stand the thought of ripping it open.

Postal Employees are also not allowed to accept gifts.  

 

Whenever the hosts say things like that I just gloss over it.

 

 

 


@Miss Pepsi - actually, they can. A value of $20 or less. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Re: For the Bus Driver or the Lady @ the Post Office

If someone needs to buy something for the bus driver or the P.O. -- how about a box of chocolates.  The other suggestion is too personal for someone your hardly know.
