WORST Gift Ever

one of my WORST Gifts Ever

I was a kid..
maybe 3rd grade...

from my "Aunt Judy"
(my fathers sister) I rarely saw her..

the package was an unusual shaped box
it sat under the tree for a week
and It was killing me!! What could it be?!?!?

Christmas morning -
I couldn't wait!!

I tear it open only to discover a pair of
ORANGE LEG WARMERS

the disappointment was overwhelming


what was YOUR worst gift ever?

A suit made out of human skin. It was two sizes too tight so I looked like a big dork.

There was one Christmas where I had saved my summer's lawn mowing money to buy a pair of cross-country skis. I finally got them and then my brother and sister each got a pair as gifts. I think my big gift that year was a new winter coat - something I needed. It wasn't a bad coat, but I was pissed.

My worst was probably a copy of Donald Trumps' real estate-themed board game. Jesus.

Marni said...

Mom gave me the book written by Amy Fisher... you know... the teenager that shot her lover's wife in the face.

When I asked her why she got me that book, Mom responded, "I know how much you love Star Wars. I thought you'd like to read about the woman that starred in it..."

The most important part of this is that my husband bought, wrapped and presented this gift to me.

My husband gave this present to me.

Got it?

A coffee mug that said, "I (heart) my wife".

Maybe he knows something I don't?

Bacon Lady said...

Oh Marni,

I would be happy to take that book off of your hands (great story by the way).

I feel guilty laughing at Marni's pain, but damn, that's funny.

My wife got me a shirt and gave me sex. Both were too big.

Booyah!!! Rim shot!!

When I was 8, my aunt gave me underpants (tidy-whities). I opened the package in front of my brother and sister and got the business for the rest of the night.

I truly wanted an Easy Bake Oven. But NOOOOOOOOO I got the Jaws game instead!!! I believe it shaped me into the person I am today, so you can go ahead and blame Steven Spielberg.

Those leg warmers totally rock! I mean I just saw them on Jane Fonda on her workout video in the 25 cent bin at the GoodWill.

A used, green martin guy for a Christmas gift exchange. I showed it to my music teacher when I was asked what I got, and he said, "Oh." I think it was one of the drummers. I felt gyped!

A 3/4 sleeve puffy white shirt in combo with a pink polyester skirt that had a huge sash that tied in a big bow up front.

As I recall, I threw them across the room.

A carton of cigarettes.
From my mom...
You can't tell me my gift isn't the worst on this page... well, except for that "human skin suit"...
