    What's the worst present you've ever gotten?

    I got a super tight (I'm 5'10 and got a solid build) neon green and red tshirt for christmas that was obviously made for females. It was (I think) a S or XS, and I was forced to "model" it for her (the seams were literally ripping off). As I was taking it off in the bathroom, the front half just tore open like the incredible hulk. Now I'm forced to explain where that shirt is everytime I visit gram gram.

    When I was 7 my sister gave me some pink VS underwear, with a CD hidden underneath. Unfortunately I ran from the room crying before I discovered the CD.

    At 14 I wasn't given anything for Christmas, my parents forgot me, but not my siblings or eachother.

    A pug remote control holder. It was basically a little pug statue that sat on its hind legs and held the remote with its front legs.

    For some reason when you own a pug people automatically assume you want everything in your life to feature a pug's likeness. Over the seven years we've owned a pug we've received (off the top of my head): A pug bag, Christmas ornament, beanie babies, coin purse, pajama shirt/pants (for MrsG), and the aforementioned remote control holder.

    The worst part was that I was really into cooking at that age (really into cooking, I bought Globals with allowance money), and the only presents for me under the tree were a spatula and pot holder from grandma. . .

    The same grandmother also admitted once many years ago that she liked elephants. Her apartment is now FULL of elephant gifts [​IMG]

    To turn this around for a moment - A late friend who grew up in The Depression said he got a bag of oatmeal for Christmas and he was happy!

    at least these gifts mentioned above had some bit of thought to it, humorous or otherwise.

    i wouldnt call them bad gifts. just memorable.



    worst gifts are when you are a child and at christmas or your birthday you have relatives (father's side aunts and uncles) that dont give an ass about you, but out of formality and reluctance they just pull some 99 cent sock or trincket they see hanging from the cash register and wrap it up and give to you.
    while all your other cousins same age were getting great gifts from these relatives.

    you know what? i wasnt really bitter or sad for myself. i could care less (even though i was like 7 or 8). i was more sad and angered for my parents. they didnt like my mom. and they showed their political power through trying to hurt her through her child. these people will definitely rot somewhere im sure. but anyways nice topic.

    I got an Infinity G20 for my 16th birthday. I was pissed because I wanted a Lexus SC300. I will never forgive my parents for that one.

    gosh... whenever i get my fruitcake its actually from a very close friend so I actually am touched by the sentiment and force myself to slice it right in front of her and eat a slice. but to get a shitty present on purpose out of spite and to hurt... thats some next level evil.

    My mom startled me with an argyle sweater once. It wasn't so much the sweater, but she'd been dead for 6 years.

    I don't remember how old she was, I think 14 or 15, but my girlfriend got a small trash can and the sound track to The Full Monty on cassette (keep in mind this was 2003ish) for her birthday... from her whole family.

    She asked her parents about it a few years later, and they were like, "I don't know what we were thinking, don't know how we let that happen."
