Cheap bastard

I don't like feeling obligated to purchase gifts for friends and family just because it's the custom around the holiday time. If I want to get someone a gift, I'll get them one when I damn well please. And if you're shopping for me, you really should direct your energy somewhere else. Exchanging gifts is even worse...should someone get mad because they didn't get a gift in return for theirs? What kinda crap is that?
