I just looked up an old friend and he has 1800 items on his Amazon wish list. Seriously? What would happen to him if somebody ever gave him all that? He'd need a fucking warehouse for it.
Not to mention he'd probably have a heart attack and keel over.
he probably uses the wishlist as a reminder of things that catch his interest while browsing on amazon - or he's a greedy mofo.
That's how I use it, as a list of things I'd like to buy, not a list of things I want to receive as gifts. Plus, Amazon has sweepstakes where you could win items you put on your wishlist with their add-to-wishlist app around the holidays. I put really crazy, expensive stuff on it.
Is he asking for wish list items instead of tips? I hate people who do that.
