(upbeat music) (audience chanting) I’m obsessed! Okay look it’s time for Ask Wendy. Everybody have a seat except for you. How you doing? How you doing, Wendy? Who are you going to give the toys to? Maybe my children. How old are they? 13 and 16. Okay, well or you could always donate them? I can. You know what I am saying? Yes to Big Brother Big Sisters. Yes.
Yes. So, who are you, how you doing?
How you doing? Wendy my name is Michelle and I’m from Matawan, New Jersey. Okay home girl! And my husband is the worst at giving gifts. Oh!
Yes. How longs he been around? 23 years. Okay!
Yes so, I’ve even gotten Jets slippers and I don’t even like football. I have sent him text messages with pictures and he still gets it wrong. So he gets mad if I return the gifts. So what can I do to get him to either get me what I want or just not get mad if I return the items? How about he doesn’t get you anything at all because after 23 years, you both can go shopping after Christmas for deep discounts where he can pull out his credit card and buy you what you want. Jet slippers? Yes!
(audience laughing) I didn’t use them. They’re still sitting there because I felt bad to return ’em and he gave me the look. They’re not even winning! I know, I know! What do you want this year? What do I want this year? I really want a swim spa. Okay well that’s good for both of you. I know! Okay have the conversation. Go after Christmas with the deep discounts. You shop for it together, okay? Okay. 23 years, he’s not going anywhere.
I know. All right, good luck. (audience applauding) Okay now.
Hi, Wendy, my name is Sarah. I’m a registered nurse from Brooklyn. How you doing?
How you doing? So, I have an issue. I have three girls, who are very selfish and entitled. Okay.
So, this year based on their behavior I was thinking about canceling Christmas. So the plan is, my husband and I are gonna sneak away on a little vacation and not tell them. Is that selfish?
Nope! Okay, okay.
And I am going to tell you why.
Okay. Well fist of all how old are they? 15, 21 and 28. Old enough to understand. New rules! That’s right, okay. And you know what, by the way, you’re the boss of them. Don’t sneak away.
Okay. Announce it right after we get off the show. When you get home today, you and your husband have a family meeting. Call all of them into the living room and you tell them that you all are going away. You still put up the Christmas tree. Okay.
It’s not that the spirit of Christmas is canceled. It’s that you’re spending you and your husbands money to go away together. And by the way, gift giving for selfish kids is year ’round. It’s not just for the 25th. Right, Right.
All right, Good luck Sarah.
Thank you. (upbeat music)
