Depending on who you buy it from, they will mark it as a gift. You're allowed up to £36 as a gift. Nice vendors will value it under that and label it 'gift'.

I am looking for some advice here. I am seriously getting tired of the runaround from my "friends". I call them, ask them to do stuff, yet they never return calls. One friend who has done so much stuff with me and the hubby over the past 15 years, like going to concerts, parties, and our camp, blew me off. She got tickets to go to see Rob Zombie in our hometown, yet never even thought of inviting me and my hubby. She is going with some other people that I know, and it's not like we don't get along,because the one girl worked with me and bartended for my wedding reception and is a great person. I am seriously getting upset/depressed. I don't understand what I need to do to get people to communicate with me. Or what it is that I am doing wrong. I don't come off all needy either- I will call you once and wait for a return call. None of this calling 10 times over and over (I had friend do that to me when I was sick wiht the flu and I already told her I couldn't go to a party with her). I don't even know how to make any new friends where I live now. I tried with one girl who used to live about 2 blocks from me, but she turned out to be an anorexic/bulimic nutcase who was only concerned about herself or what I was eating! I don't have any children, so people with children shy away. I had another friend that I met through our business and we used to hang out with her and her husband once in a while, but ever since she had her baby, she never returns my calls, so I just gave up.

Were you saying something?... [Razz] [Smile]

But seriously, people are just pulled in so many different directions all at once these days. Its like spinning plates on a pole. I kind of know where you're coming from and sometimes find myself on both sides of that coin: The not communicating and not being communicated with.

e-mail protocol is still odd, when do you stop replying, should you ever leave a question unanswered? and so on.

Think of us as your friends, "I mean I consider you guys my friends...I'm not wrong am I?"

People have really busy lives now. Everyone is stressed out with their own problems, be it money, family, employment etc...
Speaking for myself, I like to spend my private time with people I like, who make me feel relaxed and loved. I don't have time anymore for "friends" who only want something from you, or who take advantage of you, or are only friends with you because of what you can do for them.
In the past few years, I've consiously made the decision to leave behind many people I thought were my friends, but who no longer meet my definition of the word. I now have a much smaller group of friends, but it's much more rewarding because I now have the chance to know them more intimately.
Friends have to have a mutual respect for each other, perhaps there was an imbalance in your old friendships?

Amaranth, I'm pretty much the same way now too. I love hanging with my husband and his buddies. We have so much fun, poking fun at each other!

Oh, btw, I did confront my friend on why she would buy tickets to see Rob Zombie, but not even call me to see if me and the hubby wanted to go, after all of the shows that I had taken her to. And I am always the one who orders the tickets. I didn't even know about the show until I saw her post something about it on one of her other friends profile on Facebook. Anyhoo, she did not see why I was so bent out of shape. I said it was just the fact that she didn't even think about my hubby and I. She said I had no right to get bent out of shape. And that I had gone to all of these other shows without her. I told her to name them. Well, one was a show with Breaking Benjamin (I don't evn like them) and Godsmack. A friend had bought the tickets to take another one of her friends for her birthday, but that girl couldn't go, so she asked if I wanted to go. That was that. Ugh, I am still so mad. And I do feel as though I have the right to be mad, yet she says no. Why is it that any time I get mad about something that someone has done to me, they turn it around and blame me? And they never freaking apologize either! I always apologize if it is a good friend and I am wrong about something!

Helen, I'm not sure there's an appropriate response to that.

Not one that I, as a non-psychiatrist, is qualified to give anyway......

Thanks for that,now i start work at 8.30am on Monday the 11th so expect i will get more nervous the time.
The thing is i have worked for myself for 12 years so will be a bit of a culture shock.

Who gives a **** about Lindsay Lohan? Sorry just another spoiled celebrity train wreck whose had every chance in the world to clean up yet keeps screwing up. It's funny how some people expect the justice system to show pity. I knew a friend's brother with a drug problem and he got prison time the first time. Sorry had to vent lol.
