Come on guys, it's nearly Christmas, time for those lovely presents! What is the weirdest, stupidest, horrible, or just plain bizarre gift you have ever received?
Mine nightmare Xmas gift has to be an ornament of Margaret Thatcher! Even worse it was only the head (bust)! No you couldn't make it up!
Long story but it was one of my in laws years ago who had gone to Windsor to do her Xmas shopping, (really? Xmas?) and decided in her wisdom (or lack of) to buy this stuff. It included teddy bears with a crown, dishclothes with Prince Charles, and so on. I was the lucky one that had Maggie Thatcher! Which I am sure was long lost stock stuck at the back of the store and waiting for my lovely sister in law to come in and buy!
What was yours?
My brother wrapped up a roll of wrapping paper. He was about 13 and didn't know what to get me. We still laugh about it.
The one that flabbergasted me the most was a jar of dill pickles. I was dating this guy, I guess you would call it casually because we were good friends. but we weren't serious. I didn't expect a nice gift, but I figured he would take me to dinner or to a movie for Christmas, and I would cook him a nice meal and have a glass of wine. This was back in the 1970s between marriages, and as I recall, this quart-sized jar of pickles cost 88 cents at Kroger. (Don't you wish they were that price today?) I thought it was a joke until he said, "everybody likes pickles, so I thought you'd like this."
I thanked him, and my sons and I did enjoy the pickles. I don't remember what I gave him for Christmas, but after that, it seems like it was a cheap box of candy.
I got a weird colorful metal rooster. But that was payback from a camel gun I gave my dad the year before.
Four wrapped boxes in a row starting from biggest to smallest with nothing in each one of them.
Then they gave a card with $20 inside. It was good for a laugh.
lol! Castlepaloma, at least you got the 20 dollars.
