Worst Gift You've Ever Been Given

Wed Dec 04, 2002 12:46 am

LHMark get's the credit for inspring this topic, what with that fruitcake getting passed around for several years.

So. With that in mind, what is the absolute worst "gift" you've ever been given for Christmas, your birthday, or whatever?

Here are my Top 3:

1. A Video cassette of Russian Air Military Power. Not bad in and of itself, but the people that gave it to me (wrapped in festive paper, and ribbon and all) could've at least wound the tape to the beginning first to at least give the impression that it wasn't a used tape. It ended up going in the trash can as soon as I got home. This one, not surprisingly, was given to me by the In-Laws.

2. An economy sized bottle of Windex glass cleaner. Maybe someone was trying to tell me something?

3. A huge, 2 foot tall aluminum Budweiser beer can. I figured it would've been filled with thre types of popcorn, or at least a drinkable beer. It contained absolutely NOTHING.

Thanks.....I think.

An expensive pair of high-quality jeans. Perfect in every way except- they were pleated. PLEATED!

I'll take a fruitcake any day.

Set of envelopes from China. It was for X-mass 4 years ago in my office. Everybody bought something. I've got those freaking envelopes. I would preffer candy bar over this crap.

A Garbage bag. My rather senile grandmother (who fakes strokes for attention) sent me one of those orange plastic garbage bags you put leaves in for my 14th birthday. I will never forgive her.

that would have to be the smallest jar of Pesto I have ever seen. Compounded by the fact that I didn't even know what it was and also I suspect it came from the Fridge or Cupboard when I turned up

My secret Santa gave me a "bendable Santa" when I was in eleventh grade in high school (for those of you who don't know, secret Santa is when you exchange names with people via anonymous lottery, and then you send each other gifts and try to guess who is your secret Santa.)

By that time I knew who it was, and perhaps the bendable Santa wasn't as bad as what I did to it. See, it had a piece of aluminum wire or something in it, and the rest was plastic, so you were supposed to be able to move the arms, legs, and body around and leave it in various positions.

Well, in physics class, I looked right at the person I thought was my secret Santa, who wasn't ever very nice to me anyway, and I 1) tied the legs in a knot, 2) twisted the arms behind its back, and 3) bent it back and forth until the metal thing inside snapped.

That person never bothered me again.

Well this thread reminds me of the song I posted in the "Funny Songs" thread called "Hey Santa Claus" by Kevin 'Bloody' Wilson, which is about (supposedly) his kids opening their xmas presents.

http://www.aviatsiya.ru/heysantaclaus.mp3

Hey Santa Claus you c***
where's me f***ing bike?
I've unwrapped all this other junk
and there's nothing that I like.

I wrote you a f***ing letter
and I come to see you twice.
You worn out geriatric fart
you forgot me f***ing bike!

If I'd wanted a pair of bloody thongs
I would've bloody asked
and this cowboy suit and ping pong set
you can shove right up your arse.

You stuffed up me bloody order up
it's enough to make you spew!
But it's just not me who's snakey
me sister's dirty too........

Hey Santa Claus you c***
where's me f***ing pram
you promised you'd send me one
you remember who I am

cos I'm the little girl
who made sit right on your hand.
I'll give you f***ing Ho! Ho! Ho!
you forgot me f***ing pram.

Next time I come to see ya
I'm gonna punch ya in the guts
and i'll let ya f***ing reindeer loose
and kick Rudolph in the nuts

You just wait till next year
when you get back to that store
and me and me little sister
come stomping thru the door
and we'll say "Yeah you wait for it"

Hey Mums and Dads just smell his breathe
and check his blood shot eyes
and don't listen to him boys and girls
cos he tells f***ing lies

He's just a pisstank and a pervert
and he's not even very bright
cos the old f***ing wanker
forgot me f***ing bike


Also, it is now official. Mums and grandmothers are the worst gift givers

An empty can? LOL.

I've had to feign appreciation for things like socks, pens and notepads before. Nothing stands out as being particularly bad though ...

There is this lady my family knows that ALWAYS gave shit she probably found in her house somewhere. They always went straight into the garbage. My "favorites":

-Soap on a rope
-A pack of Loony Tunes Valentine cards, the funniest part is that it was AUGUST and I was 16 or 17 years old
-A coupon for feminine products, does she realize I'm a guy?

My mom gave me a leather visor once (can you say, "Village People"?).

I know it was suggested by her designers at the flower shop, who could not comprehend how anyone could not be gay.

She even said, as I opened it, "I know you're not going to like this."

But, looking at the bright side, it has been a source of amusement in the twenty or so years since.
