    If they are stupid enough to buy that shit for her, why not keep asking.

    BTW, if someone doesn't immediately begin work on a screenplay called, "Love, [Redacted]" then I will lose my faith in humanity.

    OK, I'll say it. Annoying, yes. Worthy of national ridicule? No.

    I agree with TheSportsPredictor and Care Bear. Furthermore, do we have any reason to believe this is real?

    Not really. Just the word of the person who sent it in.

    Real or not, it's annoying yes, but also funny.

    Also, would it shock anyone if this is indeed real? I sure hope not.

    What if the girl in question was asked to compile that wish list by her parents or boyfriend or whoever? And, hell, her expensive items didn't even seem that outlandish.

    Yeah, I don't get the outrage either.

    Outrage might be a little strong. But I find it....concerning? weird? definitely annoying....that a 21-year-old A. Still develops a Xmas list and B. Makes it so goddamn detailed.

    I mean, I can't remember the last time I had a Christmas wish list. Maybe when I was 15 or 16. Since then, the converstion has gone like this: [on the phone]...."What do you want for Christmas?" "Oh, I don't know. I could use this or that."

    The post calls it "insufferable." I might not use that strong a word, but it's borderline insufferable.

    My mom doesn't like to buy me anything that I have not specifically (and I mean specifically and in great detail) asked for/said I would like. Doesn't matter if it's big or small. She would LOVE a list like this. As someone upthread noted, what if she was asked to make that list?

    I've never compiled a Christmas list. I also have received mostly gift cards, checks and cash since I was 14. These things may be related.
