Its not that am not thankful for the gifts I received but I guess I never had anything that really "pleased" me or at least something I was expected to have. But the worst I had I guess was that in one of our christmas party in the office I was working with way back 10 years ago. Well I guess everybody is familiar w/ exchanging gifts during x'mas parties. Everybody is excited to open their gifts because they usually don't know what is it and from whom it came. I was w/ mine of course......but things turned sour when I saw what was in it for me. Its a shirt w/ a big print of WANTED HUSBAND! and more humilating words for women in it. I was still single at that time and such thing doesn't just funny but more of insults. I left the party and went home and burned the item. What are some gifts you had you think are worst for you?

For my wedding I received an awful paper mache vast thingy. I still do not know what it was or what it should have been used for. It was the ugliest thing I have ever seen, and I am not sure why the giver thought I would like it. We had a garage sale and couldn't even sale it for .25, that is how horrible it was. I also received one Christmas from a lady I worked with, one of those little samples of lotion that is in those little square packages, that doesn't even have enough lotion in it to use on one hand. Evidently she saved the samples she received and thought they would make great gifts.

Well I guess there are just people who are insensitive or just being careless in giving something to others. They don't seem to care what others may feel or think of them when they received such "humilating" and degrading presents. I guess giving is fun specially when you think of the benifit of those who receives it. When you see the bright smiles on their faces....it will actually make you more happy......even I guess happier than those whom you had given the presents.

hahaha!!! what a cruel gift to the singles? what did you say to the giver? I bet he is a man? hahahah he just want to make fun of singles specially if we are over the marriageable age? many people are so cruel to make fond of us. Well, for me, I did not remember to receive a worst gift maybe because the givers really know my personality that if they make fun of me, Something will happen.
