I wish to god this image was a joke but that's literally exactly how my ex wrapped presents. He'd joke about how bad he was at it and didn't know how. Literally NO ONE ever taught me how to wrap presents I just watched people growing up and tried. I fuck up paper and cutting too but it's easy to disguise with some folds!! Come on. They teach folding paper in elementary school did you fail that?

Women have so much more fucking knowledge and skills than men that make people's lives better but they trick us into using all our skills for free.

My brother once gave me a Christmas present wrapped in the plastic bag he got from the store...

I hate that people think it's cute that men can't do basic things that are super easy to learn.

Preach. It’s so frustrating and contributes to the whole man-acting-like-children charade that so many women have to pick the pieces up from in relationships.

Right?? As if we walked out of the womb knowing how to wrap gifts and moisturize. Ffs. I put effort into these little things if I think they will brighten someone's day.

Men don't do things that cost effort, so they assume anything we do is effortless. Rational my ass.

As a kid my father would just put his bags of gifts for the family in my closet for me to wrap. At least he had the sense to not have me wrap my own. Nowadays with the internet the only thing stopping people from learning and doing many things is the lack of interest or desire to do so.

So I have a story.

My previous employer was awful and full of sexist boomers mostly women but the CEO was coddled like a child by all female employees. I’m talking like they would come in early and didn’t about whose gonna make him his breakfast and bring it to his desk. They’re all 50-60 year old women and he’s 50 obese fake tan blonde tipped comb over trump lover.

Anyway. The three boomer women were lecturing me on marriage during the holidays. Informing me that as soon as I marry my SO (lol who said I would say yes??) he would make me buy all the gifts and wrap them and I would even have to buy my own gifts and wrap them myself. I kept telling them no way my SO would never do that he prides himself on thoughtful amazing gift giving and loves surprising me. He wraps his gifts.

Then the CEO pops out of his office and walks over needing more paper or something (none of us are assistants it was head of HR and Accounting and me so again...sexist) and he chuckles at me “he wraps your presents? Like actually wraps them? I’d be worried be pitches for the other team” to which him and the head of accounting AND HR burst into laughter.

Because according to them if a man buys you a gift and wraps it he must BE GAY!

Also surprisingly my SO is a way better wrapper than me. We had a competition last night and he whopped me with his clean cut corners!

Edit: I have more stories of my sexist harassing employers making comments about how my SO is gay or needs his man card taken away.

What the literal actual fuck about your coworkers. If you live in a one party recording state in the US if advise you to just record everything they say and bring it to the ACLU to make a case. Either that or give no notice when you get a new job lol. what a bunch of jackasses.

Just had this happen yesterday at work. Me and my colleague both sell luxury items. I am a woman he is a man. I gift wrapped like 10 items because I had 10 sales. He had 1. Lied to the customer that we don’t offer gift wrapping. She said that she saw someone exiting with a wrapped gift. Then he begrudgingly agreed to wrap it for her. The whole time he was doing it he whined and I just offered to guide it through him doing it. He was whining so much that I had to tell him that I will not do it for him just because he is pretending to be incompetent at it. Then when he saw no one would do it for him he sucked it up and actually wrapped a gift that looked like one in the top.

When you see feigned incompetence, what you’re actually seeing is the message “I don’t give a fuck about you. You are not important to me. I have better things to do.” And you should respond accordingly to that message.

Both my grandpas are great at wrapping presents. And my brother. Even my dad has gotten better over the years and at least tries even though he's not great at it. It's not exactly origami. It doesn't even have to be perfectly symmetrical - just make an effort and try to make it look nice. Or at least get it store wrapped.

Fuck that whole mentality. This mentality is pretty much responsible for all of the emotional labour that is expected of women.

[–]PasDeToutFDS Newbie5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

There are plenty of charity pop ups that do gift wrapping in shopping centres (not in Covid 2020 sadly): you get beautifully wrapped presents and donate to charity. It’s a beautiful thing.

But when it comes to wrapping stuff they’re selling on eBay they have master skills.

When is society going to stop with it with the "tee hee man so dumb" routine? My husband perfectly gift wraps my gifts after watching a simple youtube tutorial. This man was raised in a dirt-poor, fundie Christian home where he never, ever received a gift! He even buys biodegradable paper and ribbon to comply with my lifestyle.

He also bakes and frosts elaborate cakes from scratch for my birthday, researches and makes reservations at fine-dining vegetarian restaurants (I don't eat meat and don't want to be taken to a random place where I get to eat fcking salad).

Stop it with the dumbing down of men and expect more. If a grown-ass man can't wrap a gift, boy, I have bad news for your future marital life. How are men turning out this way? Where are their parents?

Men should feel insulted and not smug when they look at these shitty posts. Nothing fun about being an incompetent adult.

[–]TheSuspiciousChardFDS Apprentice3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

What happened to how men are SO much better at dimension and spacial recognition skills etc? What happened to how much smarter men are?

Let’s face the truth here, let alone wrap a box, they can’t wipe their ass. All they are good for is vehemently tugging at the soft wiener that is now more limp than a hot dog.

[–]CoffeeBeforeAdultyFDS Newbie2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

One of the places I shop at has a giftwrap option for a lil extra and I tend to take that because I suck at wrapping and its exciting to see what wrapping paper they used. 🤣

I sometimes do this when gifting myself stuff too.

[–]honeybeerollFDS Disciple2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

For my one year, my dad made his own wrapping paper for my presents, out of a spongebob print lol. Cuz he knows I love that m stupid ass show lmao. The presents he got me were a pair of very nice headphones after he declared the headphones I'd bought from ebay to be subpar (they were lol); and a toll pass holder, because he'd heard me complain about how if I left the told pass on my dashboard, it would go sliding across the car to where I couldn't reach it while driving. Only one year did he not wrap a present for me, but it was a present I hasn't even asked for and had recently mentioned that I was going to buy it for myself. He always gets nice presents for and presents them nicely for my mom too, because he takes pride in his work. If it's something he's doing, he cannot abide half-assing it, it has to look good.

Case and point: if he wanted to, he would.

:/ I can’t gift wrap to save my life lol. That’s why I just buy cute gift bags and call it a day 😅

[–]superbechidnaFDS Newbie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Same. I am lazy so I just use gift bags. The nice thing is that they are reusable so there’s less waste. My mom and I have been passing the same gift bag back and forth for years! 😄

[–]ScrotonimoStiltonFDS Newbie1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I received some beautifully wrapped gifts from my HVM, can't relate 🥰

[–]akashyaboaFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It literally takes good f sense...

[–]HamiltonSucksAssFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

The only time i wouldn't care about wrapping is if the gift was 100£+. Other than that, watch a yt vid it's not that hard to wrap presents

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
