well i TRIED to be a good daughter
all mom has talked about for gifts over the last few years is power tools. dad finally gave in and got her the table saw for mothers day. and now that i am in a little better place financially i decided i should step up to the plate and get her something.
since they won't be in town for dad's birthday we agreed that this weekend i would "come home" and it would be birthday celebration weekend for both of them and i informed mom that i was taking her to the hardware store to get her nail gun.
SHE WAS THRILLED....... that is, until she saw how expensive compressors were. personally, i don't know what the big deal is but she balked. so i said fine - what other tool do you really want but she totally shut down.
needless to say, my parents are in their 60's and don't need anything - nor do they want anything so i really have nothing to give them but me visiting......
