Who Gets a New Car for Christmas?

by on Friday, December 28th, 2012

All month long we have been forced to watch car commercials suggesting that giving someone a brand new luxury car is the perfect Christmas gift. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend that kind of money on a fucking Christmas present, I don’t care how hot the bitch might be. I can see spending a couple grand on something like diamonds or a vacation to someplace exotic. But i’m not dropping fifty grand on a new car for a woman as a Christmas gift.

For another thing, I think that is kind of cheesy. You should buy a car because you need a car and its time to buy a new one, regardless of whether it is Christmas or anniversary or whatever. Buying a car should be for the sake of buying a car. Giving a gift should be something unrelated to a basic necessity like daily transportation.

Do you know anyone who gave a car or got a car as a Christmas gift – ever? I would really like to know how many people think that is OK and actually do it.
