Time for another edition of Christmas shaming, in which we examine the wish lists of your friends, loved ones, and co-workers. It's a look into the strange wants and materialistic hearts of those who dwell among us. So keep sending them in. Anonymity guaranteed.
Today's comes to us from the distant past, when people still used Microsoft Publisher. The sender-inner tells us that Chris's wish list was mistakenly saved to his office's shared network drive. Judging from the DVDs he wanted, we can peg the year at 2004—which means he was all about Eli Manning during his rookie year. That also means Donald Trump's necktie brand didn't yet exist. As our tipster says, Chris just wanted ties that looked like the ones Trump and George W. Bush wore.
There is something delightfully soulless about the notation "will advise" on a wish list.
