Most thoughtless "visit" and gifts, ever. Laugh or cry?!
Boy, I am not sure whether to laugh or cry over the THOUGHTFUL gifts I received this Christmas from SO and SD!
Since SD worked Christmas day, we celebrated a day later just for her. From her I got a generic Mastercard gift card and a man's sweater. Yes, that's right, a MAN'S sweater! I also got a watch that I believe she fully intended to give to her roommate - she had even told us she was buying it for her roomate a few weeks ago. Don't know if the roomate didn't want it or SD decided not to give it to her but I wound up with it.
Of course, her father got numerous well-thought out gifts.
Speaking of her father, he is in the dog house big time. We opened our gifts in the morning, before SD came over. I got the worst, and I mean the worst, thing ever. A gift card and .... a sex toy. Yep, you read that right.
The thing that pisses me off most is that just a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about gift-giving in general, I jokingly said something about sex toys being the WORST GIFT ever to give women. Maybe his brains got scrambled or something and thought that was a "hint." Or else this is passive aggressive behavior on his part. When he saw the look of shock on my face, he pointed out that it was expensive and top of the line!
Next year, I'm planning an out of town trip for Christmas and there will be no more gift exchanges with SD and probably not SO either. I am not putting any effort into it anymore.
