Subject: Complain about the lame crap you got for Christmas here

Written By: snozberries on 12/25/07 at 11:02 pm

My parents, who I love dearly, got me sheets!!! SHEETS REALLY?!?!
Plus they were the wrong size so now I have to drive 40 miles to the nearest Target to exchange them for the right size.... or for something good.

A co-worker gave me a coupon for a 20 minute massage... I know sounds nice right?  Too bad I have serious issues with people I don't know touching me.... I had a massage for PT when I first injured my back a few years ago... I hated every minute of it

the lady said I learned something in class last night you'll like this.... then she applied copious amounts of pressure the area of my back where my disc used to be... IT HURT LIKE A MOTHER. I called the bitch something worse than that and almost hit...I had to restrain myself.  The next week I went into PT- she walked in the room and then walked out and I heard her say someone else had to do it...  ;D  I never had to get a massage after that. 

Needless to say I passed the coupon on to a co-worker who loves massages and she gave me a very nice candle she got from someone!

I was very fortunate with what I received for Christmas, this year. I am pretty much stoked. :)

We got sheets too, but I'm glad - we needed new linens after upgrading from a standard to queen size bed earlier this month. And none of them were made in China, so I was happy!

All in all, it was a pretty good day.

you can't too much more practical than that.  but unless you gave them a wish list, maybe they just didn't know what you wanted?  I would have got you a couple cases of Mountain Dew  ;D

Nothing to complain about. Actually, my friends daughter used her money and bought a gift for me for Christmas. It is the smallest little trinket - 2 dolphins riding a wave. From the dollar store of course - but ya gotta love the gifts from children.... because they come from the HEART! ;)

Normally, I would complain about something my in-laws got me, but we started doing a lottery-style drawing for names a couple of years ago, so that only one person could be complained about.

My sister-in-law Rebecca got me a gift card for an online business where I log in, give the card info, I pick something out that I want, and a week or two later, it gets to my home.

Someone actually took the time to think about it, instead of the traditional potato peelers, crappy plastic CD towers, and disgusting Cherry Cordials in a box.

^ Wow!  Who gets a potato peeler for Christmas?  That's not too appeeling ;D


I never got any lame gifts this year, but many years ago when I was in Grade 9, my dad's roomate got be a book of Donisaur Stencils.  The fact that I was in High School and she got me stencils wasn't the worst part.  She got my brother an expensive video game.  $60+ for a video game vs $10 for some stupid set of stencils.  OK, that's fair >:( lol

Melissa's parents gave her one for her birthday, last year.
The year before that, I believe it was Tupperware stuff.

Care to top that? :D

How about nothing for Christmas,yep I went out this summer and bought my sister-in-laws two presents each,I don't even have a job-they both work at different Wal-Marts, and sometime in November called my husband and said,we can't afford to by presents this year,oh isn't that nice,the one has 3 girls and spends to much money on them,I have 2 kids and they were happy with some money and one present each,instead of budgeting her money so everyone gets something she will spend between $350-500 a piece on her kids,The other one lives with her boyfriend & his mother,I'm not sure why she didn't buy anything.

I never expect or give gifts in (or out) laws.  Are you very close to them? If they have in the past, but didn't this year maybe there is a good reason, and how they treat their kids should not have a bearing on how they treat yours.  Tis the season not to count gifts.

;D Isn't that from a different Charlie Brown special?  Halloween, maybe?  Still a classic line though and perfect for this thread.  ;D 

I'm happy that I actually got anything, that somebody took the time and money to buy me something.  So what if it isn't a diamond ring like the commercials tell me that if he really loved me, he'd buy me...As long as I'm not getting beat for Christmas, then I'm happy.  We don't usually do presents here.

yeah practical is okay but I do have about a 2 page wish list posted on Amazon.  Its been there for years and I update it frequently. 

It's not necessarily the fact that I got sheets but the fact that I got ugly sheets. They were a color that has never a color I like.  Plus they were extra long. My bed is normal sized.  She knows there's no Target in SB so it sucks that I have drive 40 miles to exchange them for something good. Ah well I get to stop at Best Buy and Chick-fil-a so maybe that was my gift. She bought me something I would have to return so I could be near a chick-fil-a.....hmmmm okay GOOD GIFT!!!


Oh Mountain Dew would make a most excellent gift!  ;D

I wasn't disappointed with my gifts this year.  It is usually the same every year.  Mom gives us a case of toilet paper, garbage bags, paper plates, laundry soap, etc.  Then there is the $1300 she deposited in my bank account.  Worked for me.

The funny part is Tim has not spoken to his mother since July 3rd (she had a lot of nasty things to say about the kids & I,that my husband may never forgive her) she actually bought us presents,his one sister that lives with her boyfriend did by us presents,she wanted to wait till today to give them to us.

If my sheets came with $1300 I'd be ecstatic!
