Sadly, the worst gift I ever received during the holidays is easy to remember. I think I was in high school and we were at my grandparent's house (my dad's father and his third...or fourth...wife). Now, my step-grandmother has never been the best at gifting, and her "real" grandkids we never subjected to her delightful gifts the way we were. But this one took the cake.
Upon opening the box, wrapped in Sunday comics, I discovered the following:
- Pens and pencils (I didn't mind that)
- Men's cologne from the Dollar Tree. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a man...
- A box of assorted safety pins...yeah
- Other various small items
She's also given me underwear...but that's an entirely different (and infinitely more traumatizing) story.
