    to figure out what you're getting for Christmas?

    I go on-line and check credit card charges.

    I go to everyone's Amazon wish list and click one thing from each list and I'm done.

    Thread title looks like a conversation between a group of high school freshmen on a Friday night playing Halo.

    Misleading thread title is misleading.

    When I was a kid, I would unwrap the side of a gift very carefully, sometimes with a razor blade on the tape so it wouldnt tear. Then I would seal it back up with the same tape. My mom was never the wiser.

    I don't know why I would go to a lot of effort to find out that I am getting a couple pair of dress socks and maybe a Cyclone hoodie.

    I went as far as "Hey honey, I'm going to go buy this new trolling motor and depth finder for myself for Christmas. It's expensive so don't get me anything."

    I always tell people not to spend on me and spend the money on others/charities. Though they still sometimes get me something. But I don't care enough to try to find out ahead of time.

    How was the first answer (without reading the post because who has time for that) not 'All the way man! Heyo!!!'

    I did this once and found that I was getting a sega genesis. I continued to just carefully open it up and play it all day while my parents were working. I wrapped it back up and they never knew what I did. They did ask me how I knew how to hook it up in less than 10 seconds and was already a master at sonic the hedgehog.

    Once as a kid (maybe 12 YO?) we found the stash in the attic.

    Would have been fine except "somehow" the Ouija board knew what we were getting and the kids was busted.

    Gawd we did some dumb **** as kids....:no:

    I knew some of you would think bad things when I wrote the title.
