Nah...just didn't feel like going. Anyway I had lots of leaves which are going to lapse this year. So took a day off. Felt so good to have a 3 day weekend. I got around to finishing so many things.

Re: So, what's up?

Going to India has become so expensive. Everyone is expecting expensive gifts, not sure what to do. This will be the first time my husband and I will be going together. So they say "its special".

Is it essential to take gifts for all the cousins, nephews, nieces, aunts and uncles? These are more expensive than the flight ticket itself, even during Christmas sale!

Its weird Razzrhino...the moment they realize that someone is in North America they assume that we have lives of kings and queens. They dont think how much it takes to earn a dollar.
I think 10 times to buy small thing's I want (not need) but I keep getting requests for laptops also. This cousin of mine coolly says, "for thanksgiving there are going to be good deals on laptops, do pick up one for me". And he didn't even offer to pay half the price. How can they think that I can "gift" 500 bucks (the model he wanted)!

Re: So, what's up?

nobody except my parents ever gifted me a laptop/ computer or any gift over 100 bucks... i'm not gonna either.

who are these people expecting 500 bucks gifts... tell them to start earning money themselves. I just buy some t-shirts, colognes and chocolates for cousins... if they dont like so be it. I'm not some millionaire to fulfill demands... even they dont do it.

How should I politely say I cant bring it?
Shall I just say plainly, "sorry, cant afford it" ?
