Gift cards are the polite way for family members to say, "We wanted to give you money for your birthday, but we think you might be a drug addict," amirite?

@Courage_Wolf Or 'We don't care enough to get you a real gift, but we want to at least make it look like we do.'

Or to politely say that... "We want you to get a paper cut near a major artery with this Dicks Sporting Goods gift card and bleed to death. That way we could steal it back and buy various sporting items."

@Dwight Or to politely say that... "We want you to get a paper cut near a major artery with this Dicks Sporting Goods gift...

"Is that why you wrote 'Dicks Sporting Goods' on this index card? That's not really what a gift card is. You could have just given me a blessing and saved yourself five cents."

@Courage_Wolf Or 'We don't care enough to get you a real gift, but we want to at least make it look like we do.'

I just trade in the gift card for the drugs. Some drug dealers surprisingly take target gift cards. Who knew?

That isn't relevant to my comment at all. You're just using me to get to a highly placed comment, aren't you?

I didn't do it to be funny or get noticed..... or "be the shit," that just sounds gross  Anthony asked me to stop, so I did. Way to be judgemental, poser LULZ.

1) Then why did you do it? Because there is no way you loved every single comment because they are not all good. 2) Anthony had to tell you to stop. You would have continued to do it if the great God of the internetz didn't tell you to quit. 3) You copied Velecropter (sp?) ... therefore YOU are the poser. Way to be faggot LOLOMG<3

@TheShamWowGuy 1) Then why did you do it? Because there is no way you loved every single comment because they are not all good. 2)...

1) I loved them because I realised I rarely love comments and I actuall helpes some people get achievments, so why stop? 2) Actually, Anthony was the only one who asked nicely. I remember you "asked" me to stop, but you were rude, SO NO LOL l smilie l smilie l smilie 3) I had no idea why people were saying that, but I found out he once loved all the comments on a POTD and that's great and all but by that logic your a poser for owning a ShamWow because someone else did before you. Also, I am gay and faggot is an offensive term, judgemental is not. You're not a very nice person hmm smilie

oh you're gay? Okay, it all kinda makes sense now. Yes, faggot is an offensive term, thats why i used it. Actually believe it or not i can be a very nice person, but unlike you... i don't piss flowers.

@TheShamWowGuy oh you're gay? Okay, it all kinda makes sense now. Yes, faggot is an offensive term, thats why i used it. Actually...

Wow. Yes I'm gay, but why does that make everything make sense? And you used faggot to be offensive? Then I guess you're a homophobe. Good to know I've been wasting my time on you. How would you like it if I told you it makes sense that you're a ginger because they are generally souless assholes? I don't piss flowers, I just don't pick fights over nothing.

It would make an awkward birthday if they didn't think you were a druggie though.

Couldn't the person pay their drug dealer with the gift card? Or sell the gift card for slightly less money than it's worth and then use that money to pay their drug dealer?

@Shugah You must be a professional junkie.

Or just easily able to find logic holes. A gift card says: I got you a present, but I don't quite know what you like enough, or what your taste is to buy you a specific gift. A surprise trip to Disney Land that really ends up at rehab says: I think you're on drugs.

Some of the people I go to school with get drugs from their friends.

But I've known druggies to pawn anything to get money for drugs.

Well, you are a Sinner.

I've actually never gotten a gift card. I'll take that as a compliment.

_Jojo_s avatar _Jojo_ Yeah You Are +4Reply

Gift cards suck, most of the time I can't find what I want to buy in the store where that gift card is accepted so it just ends up being wasted on useless crap.

i keep asking for gift cards to feed my video gaming addictions, but all i get is cash. with which i feed my other addictions. they nefer luuuuuuuurnd.

This... this is great. This has to be the funniest thing I've read in a long time. Using both observational comedy with a hint of situation comedy, you come out with one of the best and most original comments on this site. I only wish you hadn't posted anonymously so I could know who this master of comedy was.

You still have to pay the same amount of money for gift cards...

@im_good_nope_im_god You still have to pay the same amount of money for gift cards...

Maybe they re-gifted the gift card? Like, "Hell, we never shop there, let's just give this to Random Family Member!"

@FlooPowderPower Maybe they re-gifted the gift card? Like, "Hell, we never shop there, let's just give this to Random Family Member!"

Yeah, that makes sense. I'm pretty sure gift cards have an expiration date though, so it would have to be a pretty quick re-gift.

@nantsingonyama I thought there was a law passed the gift cards now couldn't have expiration dates?

I don't know, you're probably right. I'm not really an expert in gift cards so forgive me.

@im_good_nope_im_god Yeah, that makes sense. I'm pretty sure gift cards have an expiration date though, so it would have to be a pretty...

They used to, which sucked, since I tend to forget that I have gift cards...or, after a certain amount of time passed, money would start being deducted from the amount on the gift card every month.

But, yeah, like nantsingonyama, I think some sort of law was passed or something so that stores couldn't do that anymore...

@im_good_nope_im_god You still have to pay the same amount of money for gift cards...

Gift cards could cost 2 dollars, but you can't give someone 2 dollars as a present. Or they could give them a hand made gift card.

But not a lot of money. Giving them money or buying them a gift costs more than a gift card. Unless I'm mistaken or something
