    Whoever sent their gift to me, I won't be in Riverside until after New Years. If you already sent it, thanks for being on time and I'm sorry I won't be able to post about it for another week or so.

    I did what I could to kick the vendor's ass to get it there sooner, but to no avail. However, I did confirm delivery of my gift on the 26th of December to my SS. I hope he likes what I got him.

    You did all you could, one day isn't a big deal. Besides, everybody knows you Jok3r. You're no slacker...

    Haha, I get the title just because I'm the only one who admitted I was late :X. I could be like everyone else and claim to have sent it "way back in november!"; but I'm not a douchebag. Anyways. How many people still haven't received theirs? I haven't, but, obviously I'm not complaining about it. Just sayin'.

    I'll privately contact my SS to let him know it'll be there within a few days, but like I said before, he's really not the type to cry about waiting an extra week for a $20 present.

    I still think it's funny the people who are doing the most crying are either people who have gotten theirs, or people who didn't even participate.

    Threadjack but, who here honestly washes there hands every time they handle their cock, peeing or otherwise? Just wash your hands before you eat, like a normal person. There's more germs on the doorknob leading to the outside of the bathroom than on your penis.

    I'm sorry, guys, but my gift did go out late (mailed out today). The boat getting back so late from this past underway screwed me over, as well as some HUGE pay issues... Anyway, it's done, and I've already contacted my SS recipient. I'm also going to toss in a few bonus items within the next week or so that will hopefully brighten his day. :D

    Sorry for the delay. I haven't been home since Christmas night, been working crazy hospital hours and sleeping at my friends place...anyway, THANKS JOK3R! He got me not 1, but 2 Darth Vader Steins! Not a huge Star Wars fan, but drinkin out of Darth Vaders head still sounds rather intriguing. I just packed my stuff and it's shipping out this week...

    Answer? Responsible adults. The only reason the doorknob is germy to start with is because of similarly lazy and stupid people. You don't wash your hands to protect you, fool. You wash your hands to protect the old lady who just touched the same door handle you touched. This isn't voodoo science. We had a guard at work who wouldn't wash his hands, heading back to the front desk where other people had to share the same computer and phone he touched. Guess what? The guy was fired for it. It's a fact that it spreads germs and diseases, and is simply not an acceptable behavior for adult humans of even below average intelligence.

    But the SS thing is actually less of a big deal. It isn't dangerous, just tacky and lacking in class and maturity.

    QFT, if everyone washed their hands then the doorknob wouldn't be full of all those germs!

    Nose, stop being so inconsiderate :p

    I worked in medicine, my sister is still an RN. So I know all about germs and how we're creating stronger and stronger strains of them with the anti-bac soap, etc. Living in a sterile world isn't possible, and is quite foolish. But washing after using the toilet is definitively an exception. You're touching an area of your body where germs thrive in sweat, feces, piss, and baby batter that has been festering in your taint for hours or (in your case) days. This simply isn't a gray area. Lazy and ignorant...

    Indeed. I am the scum of the world because I didn't mail it out on time. Despite the fact that over half the list also didn't. ALL SCUM. Such behavior is obviously below your highness.

    Additionally... if that said old lady is using the men's bathroom... I'd say she has more to worry about than germs ;)

    And uh, you shit, piss, and cum all over your privates between the morning hours and the time you get home from work? This really is derailing but, I do wash my hands after shitting. Sticking your hand in your asshole is completely different from touching the skin on your penis.

    I can't think of much more related to Christmas than hand washing practice.

    ---

    Anyhoo, the hand washing thing is just kind of a metaphor for "socially" acceptable behavior. I'd wager that more than half of this forum doesn't wash their hands after peeing; just like how over half didn't mail out their SS yet. Because I admit it, I'm worse than the liars? This is the reason why I am singled out with the title; when people who haven't even mailed theirs yet get nothing.

    What I don't understand is if this secret santa thing is "low priority" or whatever, why the FUCK did you even sign up for it? Seriously, this is the reason I didn't do it this year. For the three years I did secret santa, my gifts were delivered the week before Christmas and I received my gifts once in january (3rd SS), feburary(2nd SS) and march (1st SS). They were all good gifts but its just fucking annoying to know that someone is that disconnected from reality and not have any sense of priority or decency to send a gift and have it arrive on time.

    The secret santa was never a gigantic priority, to anyone, any year. It seems everyone that is getting their panties in a bunch about this are the people who didn't participate, or happen to be going through a mid-life crisis. You guys don't seem to understand that my secret santa does not care. Why should anyone else?

    Are you really that offended that I dared to not send it on time? That I actually said what everyone else involved is thinking? It's just a fun little side event, we're not making life or death decisions here. And why just me? Sparky hasn't even mailed his yet. At least two others have also mentioned not even mailing it yet. (Yes, Will had an excuse. I'm not including him.) Obviously they don't care either, they're just not stupid enough to try to reason with you guys.

    Oh, should have mentioned I was not talking about nosemaster directly, just late people in general.

    I still think that if you can not commit yourself to getting your SS gift delivered on time, don't even bother participating. It's as easy as that.

    The third rule of participating in SS:

    I have an idea for next year, we have two SS. One for people who care about getting their gift sent/received on time and the other is for people who do not care to get their gifts anytime between this year and the next. Problem solved.

    I shoulda gave up that first year after the fabled sweater package. You guys don't have to worry though, I probably won't participate next year. This event used to be a fun little side thing, not a circle jerk about precision and efficacy. Fuck, I think the deadline last year was the end of January, for christs sake. Just because some douchebags didn't mail anything at all, everything's gotten so annoying.

    Because I know this will make everyone who hates me for admitting Tweak SS isn't at the top of my to-do list smile: I still haven't gotten mine. Divine justice from god. Prolly saw me not washing my hands after sneezing, and decided some righteous karma balancing was in order.

    wow....i can't believe you gave him a fucking custom title. sure, he admitted sending his gift wasn't a priority, but it's not like he's the only one who sent his late. if you're going to be like that you should give everyone who's ss hasn't received a gift that title. admittedly, he shouldn't have pointed out that he didn't care as much, but overall that some fucked up shit if you ask me.

    Agreed. Brent still posts here and Dan has done nothing. And I'll give Nose points for honestly too. But it still doesn't change the fact that he and those like him ruin it for the others and, in the case of myself, keep other people from participating at all. Two years of scandal in a row, will there even be a SS next year? Gift exchanges amongst men is a stretch to begin with, but when you throw a Nosemaster or Sparky in the mix (boys, no offense but true) of course it's going to be a disaster. Let's get 'em properly potty trained before we move on to higher functions like wrapping and sticky tape. :p

    Well MSP I was thinking the same thing. What am I gonna do next year? Man, I organize it and I don't get a gift in time. Thanks for all my efforts.

    And about all the endless ranting, fur fuck's sake, LATE is LATE. I don't care about honesty and all that shit, late is late. But granted, we shouldn't make a fuss over your case Nose. We like you, you were honest, big deal. At least you send something cool.

    I'm just a little dissapointed in you fellow tweakers. When you can't participate properly, why doing it?

    My SS gift was sent to arrive a day or two before christmas, that way the recipient wouldn't open it too early. But I think he is away from home until a little later in January. Should have given his name to one of the slackers.

    No gift for me yet, hopefully I get something this year.

    Anyone ever get so aggravated by a thread that they simply cannot reply to it? I'm nearing that point with this thread, and I didn't even participate.

    Fuck, I must be so naive. I actually thought I was being reasonable expecting people hold up their end of the bargain. Can you believe it? How embarrassing. The easier the commitment is to fulfill the less likely it is to happen, is that the rule? Or is everything different for every person and the world is a bumblefuck of contradictions? Too many cups of coffee for me today I think ;) [/overreacting]

    This year I followed MSP's lead, opting not to get involved. I don't think I'm cut out for this casual gift giving stuff or something.:wasted:
