Worst Gift Ever?
For Bucky Big Grin

What's the worst gift you've ever given and/or received?

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Let's see...here are the high (low points) of just some of the gifts I've gotten.

A fishing pole (I'm allergic to seafood so that was fucking useless)

Pots and pans (the one thing I did ask for was naturally excluded)

A vacuum

A food processor I didn't need and bounced off the counter when I did finally get around to using it.

A toaster I didn't need or want (it sits beside the old toaster we still use)

An ugly purple necklace.

A scarf with this weird fringe that got miserably tangled.

A book written in Latin (obviously the book wasn't opened -- just the cover was glanced at)

A rug making kit, but didn't include the needle or round thingy to hold it.

A candle making kit...without candle wax.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Dated a guy in the past who gave me black lipstick, and said he liked the 'vampire' look. Worst gift ever. You don't give someone a gift that only benefits you. Tongue

Be true to yourself. Heart

Well this year might be the best yet. Facepalm

Hubby called and asked my shoe size. Nothing good will come of that.

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
A guy I was dating gave me a huge ass life-sized teddy bear for Christmas...which would have been cute, except from that gift I found out he was dating several other women and also gave them the same huge ass teddy bear. Facepalm But in a sense, finding out he was a total asshole was a good gift. Thumbsup

My sister would probably say the worst gift ever was the fire engine that I gave my nephew. It had several loud sirens and soon became his favorite and most used toy.

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Received:

1987, my husband gave me a $35 Walmart vacuum cleaner for our anniversary. He thought since we needed a new one it would also make a good gift, two birds in one. I bought him a man's diamond dress ring $350 that he'd picked out 6 months before and I'd been secretly saving for since he chose it.


Given:
Divorce. When I divorced my ex 4.5 years ago I had the date set for the final decree and court appearance for the 5th as both our birthdays fell later in that month. The court called and canceled that date and scheduled it for the date of his birthday. If not then it would be delayed for 3 more weeks after that, the judge would being in trails until then. (small town/county)

I did have the courtesy to call and ask him if it mattered, he said no but when I called back to confirm, I explained the court clerk. She put me on hold and when she came back the judge had said the next day at noon. So it wasn't on the day of his birthday since the judge gave up his lunchtime to accommodate us.

btw, we're good friends and it was a very equitable and peaceful divorce. Smile

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
My stepmother, who is a pink-Caddy-level Mary Kay person, tends to give me Mary Kay stuff. Whatever didn't sell in the fall season, or tchotchkes too garish to give to her sales team…that's what ends up going to me.

I guess I wouldn't call it the worst gift, because every time I open her presents, I am nearly breathless with anticipation. A couple of years ago she gave me the fugliest purse I have ever seen, and she is going to have to work mighty hard to outdo that. But I am hoping she'll come up with something even more insane this year.

RE: Worst Gift Ever?
Roommates. Waited for my birthday for this gem.

"Happy birthday! We're kicking you out! Have some computer stuff to soften the blow!"

(Also, the computer stuff was incompatible with my motherboard and I needed to get an entirely new computer after that.)
