When I was 10 and in Boy Scouts we had a grab bag. I got a Snoopy "soap on a rope." Shittiest gift ever for a 10 yr old boy. What kind of shit-head puts that into a grab-bag for 10 yr olds? Everyone around me was getting model cars or action figures, I had soap.

By definition, how can getting a gift be bad?

When I was a kid, I received this AWFUL plaid dress from one of my aunts. My parents made me wear it once when we visited her, but it never saw the light of day again...except to be taken to Goodwill.

See...getting my ugly dress was bad because I HAD to wear it in my aunt's presence to express gratitude.

Its a toss up between the sweatshirt with puff paint kittens on the front or the suede patchwork vest.

I got a recipe file box thingy from one of my aunts.....when I was about 12! What 12 year old needs a recipe file box? I'm 29 and I still don't need anything like that now!

I was horrified when I unwrapped it to see that it was. My mom took it and and bought me something else. Funny how I can't remember what she bought me but I remember the file box...maybe because my mom still uses that thing to this day.

I gave a blank floppy disk to someone once for a gift exchange of sorts.

I got a pretty organiser.

I felt horribly bad for two days after that.

last year i received 4 x-mas greeting cards and sent none.
i was so ashamed of myself.
that's why this year i sent 7!...and received 5....
but the worst thing is, that 3 of the greetings were from people i haven't sent anything...
this is not good.
I feel terrible again.

My worst was from my sister-in-law...pillows made out of mens ties. Not only were they ugly but they were so flat that you were better off just laying your head flat on the hard the floor.

Oh and one year she made me a shirt that looked like would belong on the prairie in the 1800's if I wore it.

Hehehe the girl across the road is going to get a baby this year, I can tell. She's pregnant (obviously lol) and her husband has been saying for months the baby is due early December. She still hasn't dropped yet. My God she's huge too poor girl.

My mum once gave me a huge bottle of Georgio perfume which I thought she knew I detested. I felt so awful for her because it was proper perfume not eu de toilet or whatever its called and must have cost her a lot. So for ages after I had to waste it on things like going to do the grocery shopping etc, just to get rid of it. I never told her.
