I love gifts, don’t you? I remember the times, when in the beginning I didn’t have many neighbours, which meant not many gifts to send and receive. Like in real life (so I hear from my wuman), the key word of success is to have plenty. If u r rich – u conquer almost everything and able to achieve what your heart desires. And, of course, advance in life as well as in ze game.
The wuman talks to me telepathically here and there, and told me that in the beginning of this game, the players couldn’t change the gifts they received and there where pleadings to send good and suitable ones, otherwise it was in vain, no use to these gifts. She plays this game a ve-ry lo——-ng time, much-much more than me, as u may understand. I can but be horrified because of zis. Ok, perhaps “horrified” is a strong word, as we are dealing wiz just a game, but I can’t sink of another at zis moment. I can’t imagine how awful it is not to be able to change the gifts. Oy vey! You are stuck wiz items you don’t want or need! Feh!
But it’s a very little comfort, because ppl keep sending stupid items like the fuel tank, trees/flowers, baits (ichs!) and all this unnecessary drek, not to mention the decorations. Hello!!! It’s like the sender puts her curser unintentionally on a coincidental item wizout bothering to choose a good effective one and clicks the send button. Just for the sake of fulfilling a task. Nobody pays any attention to the fact that it’s such a time consuming having to change zem! Not to mention how angry does it make you feel. Nobody has mercy on their neighbours. Sometimes, occasionally, when I’m in ze mood of getting even, I send people back drek gifts like ze peacock. If u got zis from me – plz do us both a favour, consider to behave and start sending me (as well as your ozer neighbours) normal, good effective gifts.
What is considered as good effective gifts? No need to have a high IQ to figure out that it’s those that you can’t produce or purchase and you depend on your neighbours to send you. Like all the meat stuff (including chicken pepperoni etc.), which seems to be always missing. Most restaurants need these, so why not send it and not just drek? I have neighbours that constantly stick to one item and never change the gifts they send. It means that I constantly need to change them. From like 50-60 gifts I get per day, a half has to be replaced. I don’t need any fuels (I have the facility!), nor crops, as I grow them myself. I have no idea why they still bother to annoy their neighbours with unfertile cases of fruit.
There were times, when I wanted to teach them a lesson and used to send them back the same drek items, but I found out that there’s no point to continue doing so as they kept sending as they pleased. No success, alas. No point in wasting time with ppl that don’t care.
I wish they will soon get some common sense and stop sending these. A little thoughtfulness never hurt anyone, did it?
