'Tis the season for disappointment

I haven't even started shopping yet, but I feel confident that I'll pick out all the wrong gifts. Again.
One thing I always get right, though, is the wrapping. I am a world class gift wrapper. Really! But I am starting to worry that the more beautifully wrapped the gift is on the outside, the more crushing the disappointment with the item inside. So this year, I have made up some gift tags that will help manage recipient expectations.

Kerry, you are the best wrapper in the world. Want to come wrap all the presents for my family? I no longer have my nanny that was bascially my slave. Don't get me wrong. I still have a nanny but she mainly just does child care, not my crazy off the wall demands like wrapping gifts and putting together furniture.

Let's back it up just a minute. You had a nanny that was amenable to crazy demands? She is no longer in your employ? Gimme that contact information. GIMME!

I'll get started on my own list of whacked-out requests now!
