    What's the worst Christmas present you ever got?

    What's the worst Christmas present you ever got?

    The worst I ever got was a giant book--about 2 feet wide and 3 feet long, and 10 lbs. It took up a lot of space but I couldn't throw it away because it was a present.

    I appreciate all gifts I get from loved ones. It's the thought that counts.

    I feel the same as Term. I've always appreciated everything that anyone has taken the time to select and give to me.

    I was bit by a doberman in the face when i was around 12 years old.
    I almost lost my eye because of it but finally recovered a while later.

    Coming from a huge family, my grandfather would pick names from a hat and that is who you had for christmas.
    My uncle Steven had me the Christmas after I was bit by the dog.

    It was a how to care for your dog book and on the cover was a doberman and he put in red marker, blood dripping from its teeth..

    sorry but that gift i was not appreciative of and i ran off crying.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I get so much useless shit I can't even remember. Maybe it was that case of the clap I got one Xmas from this hooker.........um wait, that never happened.

    I can't even remember. Truly useless crap gets given away, sold, or pawned. Or "broken".

    My mother is fond of giving me pieces of those Dickens Christmas Village sets. If I tell her I need a $10 practical gift, she'll go and spend $100 on that stuff, even though I have zero space for any of it.

    I've always been pretty lucky, the only oddball gifts usually come from employee parties or the like where the gifts are supposed to be strange.

    I'm grateful for the thought behind all gifts (which is why I try not to throw gifts away even if they are useless and take up too much space), but I don't like to accumulate too much stuff. I used to like material gifts when I was a kid and didn't have much stuff, but now I tell everyone that I would prefer a phone call or email to material gifts or greeting cards.

    WTF, no way, people in my family just buy random crap and give it to you, there is no thought or effort. Now if time was spent, then yes, but really, do I need socks???? come on I have a whole gosh darn dresser full, and if I needed them, I would by them.

    But I will say, anything from my son and wife will always be priceless

    i've always appreciated the gifts that i got. now i will say that there have been a few times when i was rather confused by the thought process that went behind the gift selection. but still pleased that they thought of me.

    Did you read it??. I appreciate everything I get. My kids have families and christmas is kind of tough sometimes, so, nothing is BAD, all GOOD, and I thank them for their efforts.

    I read parts of it, but it wasn't really on a subject I had much interest in. The person who gave it to me knew that I liked books, but not what kind I liked or how little space I had in my apartment--I guess the assumption was that bigger is always better.
