The unmitigated snot-nosedness of the original post begged for nothing less than a verbal spanking from the assembled respondents.

Interesting, then, how many of the "assembled respondents" managed to respond without administering a "verbal spanking." I guess those who responded without name-calling were remiss in their duties.

I thought this was the point of the OP.
I don't read it as he's being un-greatful nor snot-nosened.

I think it's a pity that the shop didn't offer a gift-certificate when the customer didn't really know what to buy.

I was going through a series of horse shoe puzzles. I asked for the most difficult one. When my friend went to the puzzle shop, the sales guy sold her an intermediate puzzle, saying that I will never get this one. She brought it home and I did it in about 30 seconds. I did not say anything bad, I was happy, and it sits on my shelf in my collection.

But it goes to show you, some Sales people have no idea what you want. Or try to sell you things you do not need. This goes on in all businesses. When was the last time you bought a car? lol

The next year I made a wish list a penguinmagic.com , and emailed it to her, and I got exactly what I wanted!

I usually got clothes for Christmas, I got a bicycle cupola years after the war was over. I did get a magic set once, AC Gilbert or Mandrake, don't remember. I had to work for the magic stuff I bought, picking cotton, grocery clerk, picking up bottles.
