He Wants Another Toy

Jeffrey called me from work today. He said he went online and found a $250 GPS on sale for $100. Then, silence, as he waited for me to tell him what a great deal that was and that he should buy it. For some reason, he's gotten it into his head that he wants one. There's that saying about boys and their toys. It's just another neat toy, I think.

It's not like he needs one. I don't know if he's ever gotten lost in his life. If anyone in this family needs a GPS, it would be me - but with Google Maps and Yahoo Maps and Mapquest, with a little planning, I can print a map ahead of time. You know, if I really want to go somewhere.

So, no GPS for Jeffrey. He'll just have to continue to find his way around the old-fashioned way - following his nose.

  1. What is it with men and their toys? They think just because something is a good deal, they absolutely HAVE to have it. Luckily we don't usually have enough cash around to get everything he wants, or I wouldn't be able to walk in my house! lol!

  2. Do men actually use GPS's???? I mean, they won't stop and ask for directions, so will they really listen to a gadget tell them where to go?

  3. Same here, my partner is always trying to convince me he needs something new - the next on his list is an iPhone which I think is wayyyyy too expensive and unnecessary.
