Worst Gift - Multiple years I received crappy gifs from a relative...they liked to give some of us nice things and the one they didn't care for that year received obviously cheap crap. One year my brothers and their wives all received lovely well thought out gifts. I received grocery store free with purchase glasses. My husbands name was written on it as an afterthought while the other married in spouses received something lovely.
I tried to be gracious and move on but then the jerks started comparing how much they time and money spent on the others vs. ours to us...it was awkward and hurtful. When we got home, my husband decided we should lobb them into the empty dumpster one by one, best satisfaction and stress relief I ever felt!
That year marked the end of the annual gift exchage with those relatives, everyone was embarrassed! It's such a releif to not have to spend hours shopping for someone just so they can treat you like crap!
