Friday FAIL

All I want for Christmas is...

Hmm, I don't see anything there I want. Maybe I need to shop around.

That's it!

Ron has his own ideas about a suitable gift.

I am laughing just thinking about my wife's reaction to some of these adverts.

I am sure Ron will have some fun items for you.


elle :) said...

Lol, I was looking at those bad ads the other day, too! I love that she's laying next to the vacuum, lol.

Bas said...

That wife doesn't look interested in the Kenwood chef. I think she has chosen for "Le chef de la Famille".

These are very quaint.....what a different time. When you think about it, a vacuum cleaner might have cut a workload in the home substantially. I remember my MIL telling me how wonderful it was to get an automatic washer and dryer when they came out. She said it was like heaven.
Thanks Hermione. hugs - lillie

I can tell you those are not Christmas, birthday, Mother's Day anniversary gifts for any woman I have ever known. Those are necessities not gifts.

My husband made that mistake the first year we were married - he has learned well.

I'm happy to say P has never bought me an essential house gift for Christmas or birthdays.

The old ads do make me smile. Thanks Hermione.

Have a great weekend.

My Man has yet to try to buy me something like that for a holiday. He is a good man.

The last ad made me LOL it might as well have said "barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen" ;-)

This are definitely appropriate for Friday Fail! lol Have a nice weekend Hermione! :)

Ami Starsong said...

Hermione, I actually have that Kenwood Chef! And the remark is exactly what Starman would say! Help!!!

I remember our first Christmas after we were married. We were as poor as Church mice, so we went halves on a coffee maker.

And I have to ask you, does it really make us any happier if we ask for something with Dior on it for Christmas?

Have a great weekend. Hugs, Ami

Hermione said...

Joey - Probably the sane as mine:)

Elle - So submissive!

Bas - I think so too.

Lillie - I remember the old wringer washers, and before that my gran had a scrub board.

Sunny - I'm glad you have him trained.

Ronnie -Ron gave me a pressure cooker on our first Christmas together.

Young Lady - I hope he gives you lovely, frivolous gifts this year.

Grace - Fails indeed, for this day and age.

Ami - Welcome! No, it doesn't make us any happier. (Actually, I would LOVE a Kitchen Aid mixer.)

I better never get a vacuum as a gift! Thank goodness my darling is not like that!

Unknown said...

Epic Fail! If I got a vacuum for Christmas Bucko and I would be having a serious talk... it wouldn't be pretty.

Red said...

definite fails. What many women who blog would choose though would be a spanked bottom.
May your Christmas wishes come true.
bottoms up

Hermione said...

Minelle - I gave Ron one once, but he had requested it.

TL Bucko - Not a gift most women would want.

Red - That's top of my list, and best of all, it doesn't cost anything, but it's priceless.
