Colorado’s Queen of Bad Gift Giving
C'mon now, sing it with me. "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," unless you receive a horrible gift every year.
Isn't that the worst?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not into receiving expensive gifts or pricey items, but I do expect the person sending the gift to at least put in the effort. Since I can't really afford to send gifts to everyone I know. I don't expect much in return.
My now ex-sister-in-law was known amongst the family as "Colorado's Queen of Bad Gift Giving," and she made no apologies for it either. On top of that, she was also known for her re-gifting skills as well. But that is for another time.
Over the last five holidays, here is what I received.
"On the First Year of Christmas, my Sister-in-Law Gave to Me..."
I received fake leather driving gloves with an umbrella. For one, I have never used driving gloves. Secondly, I've used an umbrella maybe twice in my entire life. So yeah, this first gift was a dud. I'll chalk this up to my sister-in-law for not really knowing me.
"On The Second Year of Christmas, my Sister-in-Law Gave to Me..."
Another pair of fake leather driving gloves? BTW, this is not a typo. It was the same cheesy gift I received two years in a row. WTH?!
"On The Third Year of Christmas, my Sister-in-Law Gave to Me..."
This time around, I received a pack of forks and spoons in a zip-lock bag. WOW.
"On The Four Year of Christmas, my Sister-in-Law Gave to Me..."
I received in the mail, a reused plastic crab container full of old potpourri.
On The Fifth Year of Christmas, my Sister-in-Law Gave to Me..."
I slightly used a $50 gift card that had $26 dollars left on it.
Can you say tacky?
