I'm sure you'll figure out a million ways to bash me about this issue so go ahead! Apparently I'm stupid enough to think Amazon would put items in nondescript boxes, like I dunno, maybe BROWN AMAZON BOXES like they use every other time of year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had this brilliant plan that Santa would bring my two younger boys matching Big Wheels. They would be put together and standing proudly under the tree when the kids woke on Christmas morning.
I pull up in the drive way from picking up my two little ones from school, and see nothing amiss. I let my kids run up the drive and around the curve of the pathway while I get my purse out of the car. As I approach the blind curve of the walk way I see my babies staring at two large boxes sitting on the porch containing Santa's gift of Big Wheels! I am furious.
I'm sure I screwed up somehow and should have stated that they should be in a BROWN box but I failed!!!!!!!!!!!! What a moron.
This has to be a question so...any Christmas horrors for you yet? Amazon horror stories? Surprises ruined? How much you hate Christmas & Santa and think this is a stupid question? Sound off!

It ruined my birthday surprise, but in all fairness, it did say that it would ship in the manufacturers box.

I went Christmas Shopping last Saturday while my MIL watched my son. I thought I had taken everything out of the car but I left his hockey sticks in the back. Of course my son found it. I just told him that Santa had dropped them off to make sure that these were the ones that he wanted and that I have to give them back so Santa can deliver them on Christmas. He bought it so far.
