Was This Rude?

So how'd the big Christmas party go? Sean said he thinks Mom and Dad are covered for Christmas gifts, but he also mentioned that he essentially got Dad, like... some beer - which is cool and all. I'm just sayin' that The Wife and I currently have a buy-in option available, so if you'd like to explore that possibility, just let us know. We got Mom and Dad a joint gift. I do not mean that we got them a "joint", or "joint"-related gift paraphernalia. That is not a good mix with beer anyway. Again, if you feel as though you're all set in this regard, I say, "Fan-freakin'-tastic." I'm just layin' it out there, that's all.

OK, what the hell are you talking about, dear brother-in-law? Are you saying that we can contribute to the gift you got for Mom and Dad, and if so, what is it? We got Mom a sweater, a shirt and a necklace. We got dad "Beers from around NY," and a warm, fuzzy blanket. Did Sean leave you with the impression that all we bought them was a few beers?

Yeah. Sean told me that he got Dad "...like eight beers." Which, again, is cool or whatever. I just didn't know if there was one of those situations happening where, as far as Sean can tell, everything is all set, but the reality is that actually nothing is even close to set at all. Familiar with that scenario? Right. That's all.

Sounds like you're all over it. See you in a few!
