Is she a greedy girlfriend?

We received this e-mail from Marcus this morning.....what do you think then answer our Question of the Day.

Morning people! What’s up? I am loving you guys this morning! So check this out. My girl has just informed me that I better have spent at least $500.00 dollars on her this Christmas or she is returning all my gifts! She is out of her mind! I mean come on? That’s not what Christmas is about! I told her she is being selfish and inconsiderate, but she said that she deserves to be treated like a princess. I love her, but what should I do?

What does it take to be truly happy?


What does it take to be truly happy? A panel of experts (including a psychologist, a psychotherapist, an entrepreneur, an economist, and 2 workplace specialists) have worked together to come up with a 10-point plan. Do all of these things regularly and they promise you'll soon be smiling ...Fairly obvious stuff but always good to be reminded.

• Plant something and nurture it.• Count your blessings – at least 5 – at the end of each day.• Take time to talk. Have an hour-long conversation with a loved one each week.• Phone a friend with whom you have not spoken for a while and arrange to meet up.• Give yourself a treat every day and take the time to really enjoy it.• Have a good laugh at least once a day.• Get physical. Exercise for an half-an-hour 3 times a week.• Smile at and/or say hello to a stranger at least once each day.• Cut your TV viewing by half.• Spread kindness. Do a good turn for someone every day.– BBC News

Tipping for the holiday season.

Tis the season for holiday tipping, but how much should you give the hired help? Thank goodness for this handy little guide to how much you should hand out to hired hands ...
• Babysitter ... 1 evening's pay plus small gift from the child.
• Child's Teacher ... Gift (but check school's policy to see if it's allowed).
• Courier ...$15-$25 (if you get regular deliveries).
• Daycare Providers ... $25-$70 each plus small gift from the child.
• Dog Walker ... Cost of 1 session.• Gardener ... $20-$50.
• Hairdresser ... Cost of 1 cut (or $20-$100) if you go frequently, plus a small gift.
• Housekeeper ... 1 week's pay or more (depending on length of service).
• Mail Carrier ... Gifts under $20 (normally not allowed to accept cash).
• Manicurist ... Cost of 1 session (or $10-$50), plus a small gift.
• Nanny ... 1 week's to 1 month's pay plus a small gift from the child.
• Newspaper Carrier ... $15-$25 for daily delivery ($5-$15 for weekend delivery).
• Personal Trainer ... $25 or cost of 1 session.
• Trash Collector ... $15-$20 each.
That’s a whole lot of loot spread around to a lot of people. Do they all deserve it? What professions that normally aren’t tipped should be?

Innappropriate Christmas Gifts

Check out the email we received on the weekend and tell us about the innapropriate Christmas gift you received.

Dear Breakfast Club,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for two years now. Last Christmas I made no secret of the fact that I wanted a watch for Christmas. He got me a hamster. I hate the hamster. It’s a wonder it’s not dead. Do you want it? How do I make sure I don’t get another completely inappropriate Christmas gift this year?
