Good idea. On top of that, I'm pretty sure it wont be frustrating finding a parking spot, walking a mile in the store, standing in a line with everyone in front of you shopping like the apocalypse is coming, waiting in line again to have the clerk make sure you didn't steal anything and walking back to your car. I'd rather burn a 50 dollar bill than do that to save a few dollars.
Yeah but that's close enough you can combine them.
My wife has learned to expect nothing and gets nothing on VDay.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
1) Buy flowers from guy on side of the road at NH Ave beltway off ramp.
2) Cook dinner at home, going out on V-Day is for suckers.
3) Present flowers, prefectly cooked medium rare steak and twice baked potato.
4) Present gift- my dick in a box.
Meh, I leave work at 4, swing by the Costco by my office and head home. Not really a big deal. Yeah, its probably awful at lunchtime and at 6pm, but so is the grocery store.
Not all Costcos are created equal, for sure, but unless you show up on a Friday at lunchtime or on a Saturday from like 11-4, this isn't even a remotely accurate description. Even when their lines are long, they move quickly. Parking's not a problem at all at my Costco either, other than the soccer moms who can't park their Canyoneros in one of the extra-wide spaces.
It's also not just saving a few dollars unless you're G$ or something. V-day flowers from a legit florist are really, really expensive.
Plus (for me), I know what I want at the grocery store so I'm in and out. I don't have to spend fifteen minutes telling the florist I don't want the rainbow horse arrangement with blue moons and green clovers.
Whatever works, though...
Lines at the Costco in Gaithersburg are always long. There is not a down-time. I've tried random times looking for a dead period, and it just does not exist.
Same. Total BS
That Costco is the pit of hell. Columbia is fairly good, the Arundill Mills is pretty good and the Frederick one is a dream. Not saying you have other choices just pointing out that the Gaithersburg Costco is the pit of hell and some others are pretty good.
Tell me what you really think about Asians?
In every man's life, there's a trip to the San Gabriel (CA) Costco. If another Asian old lady had rammed me with her cart, I would have gone completely postal.
I have a Fresh Market (similar to Trader Joe's) near my house. flowers, steak or salmon, potatoes and salad seems like the best way to do something without going overboard.
and I was born on my dad's bday, which I think has sucked for both of us. Add in my new sister-in-law who's bday is the day before, followed by mom's day, wifes bday, mom's bday, father's day, MIL bday, July 4, FIL bday, SIL bday, Labor day makes for a nice 4 month window.
My wife generally doesn't care how I spend money but would probably be somewhat upset if I wasted money on V-Day for flowers. She appreciates flowers at random times so much more. We used to do dinner, but it has gotten to the point some of the nice restaurants have limited menus, jack up the price etc. We pretty much exchange cards now, and last year I did start a tradition taking my two daughters (now 5 and 3 yo) out to dinner and will do it again this year either on V-Day or right around it.
Ha.. this thread gets started every year. Some of you are really turds about that whole thing. I mean, I guess I'd side with you about it being a "fake" day and such and your decision to do nothing if I honestly believed you were a great boyfriend/husband that did other really nice things on other non-occasions, but I suspect that you don't. Geez.. suck it up and surprise your wife with something thoughtful. You don't have to spend a thousand on flowers. Just do something nice for a change.
My girlfriend's birthday is on Valentine's Day. On the plus side, it means I can knock out both in one day. On the other hand, it means I better get it right.
For a change?
What constitutes a surprise? On Valentine's Day, that threshold has be like a car. Standing in line to buy flowers with 40 other guys at 5:00 and a dinner reservation at an overbooked restaurant with a limited menu isn't exactly "special." But it society's expectation.
So you're saying valentine's day is to make up for being a non-great boyfriend/husband that also does nothing nice on normal days....damn
So what does your guy do for you every yr? Or, what would you "expect" on Valentines day?
I think I speak for all of us when I say that we unfailingly give our significant others (in my case my wife) unlimited access to our genitals. What could be nicer than that?
My brothers birthday is on Valentines Day. How much does that suck?
It's your day yet you are expected to go out and buy someone else gifts.
I don't mind doing things for her on Vday, to me it's an excuse to go to a nice restaurant that we both like (Mortons FTW) and I get her flowers occasionally throughout the year anyways, so it's not like pulling teeth or anything. I like to make her happy, and if this is a relatively painless way of doing it, great. it's much better than being dragged to an all day antique show with her mother, grandmother and sister or some other obnoxious things that she'd like me to do.
