    She bought me a really crappy tripod from Best Buy for xmas. :sad2:

    I can't even tighten the head enough so that the weight of my lens doesn't cause the camera to tip down. :hsugh:

    And this after a guy at a proper camera shop showed her a good one that he said will last me for the rest of my life. :hsugh:

    I love her alot, but I wish she would consult with me about this stuff before she goes and spends money on this sort of stuff which she knows nothing about. :o

    She also got me a camera backpack, which is pretty decent. Too bad I have nothing other than my camera to put in it. :hsugh:

    Looks like I'm buying myself the 18-200 VR for boxing day. :dunno:

    I want to say one more time that I really love my wife, but she could tell I was dissapointed. :wtc:

    take it back, she'll never know the difference between them.

    atleast she tried :)

    I got an unexpected bag too, which was a nice suprise.

    She already said that she'll take it back for me. The worst part is trying to hide my dissapointment, because she DID try, and it WAS a good idea, because I've been talking about getting a tripod forever.

    It makes me feel so guilty. :o

    Why, you told her you appreciate the thought and it's just that she doesn't know what's good and what's not. It's like you getting her something that you have no clue about, would you feel bad if it wasn't EXACTLY what it was? You're married, return it, get a new one, move on.

    I just always feel so bad/sad when someone tries really hard to get me a good gift, and they fail. :wtc:
     
  7. do what I do, tell everyone not to get you stuff. :dunno:


    I always end up getting shitty quantaray stuff or sd cards like wtf am i supposed to do with this stuff. but now I get nothing and I don't feel bad for having to bring back this stuff. :mamoru:


    I have been receiving xmas presents from myself since late october - november. So far I got another 30D, a nice laptop from dell, and a bunch of 2gig memory cards. Next week I am probably going to get 2 more AB800's and I might sell my original 30d towards another camera body.. maybe - maybe not.

    no one gets me anything for me, no one gets anything from me... it's a win win situation, more money for me to get expensive stuffs :hsd:

    Next time, put on a smile, give her a hug and shut the fuck up. I've gotten piece of shit presents in the past and though i would only use them as expensive paper weights, i'm still grateful for the fact that people out there would love me enough to at least ATTEMPT to get me something that might make me like what they got. At least she tried.

    I'm just so fucking pissed at arrogant people who have this sense of entitlement bullshit. Merry fucking Christmas.

    I had it cranked as tight as it would go. I could feel the plastic flexing as it was about to break if I cranked it any further.
