Default Worst Christmas gift ever?

I know we should be grateful and that Christmas is not about getting gifts . . . but, who are we kidding, we aren't always grateful . . . and some gifts are just awful. What was your worst Christmas gift (not necessarily this year) ever?

I always laugh at this one , just cant help it .

When me and Becky first got together , that Christmas , her dad got me a present . He really enjoyed his alcahol and i know 80% of the time wasnt thinking clearly and i dont really think he liked me all that much , still dont think he does lol , ohh well .

Anyways , he shows up at the door one Christmas and hands me this small item wrapped in dripping ,, yes dripping wet wrapping paper . Now , i know my way around a shop or garage and dont need to hold it to my nose to pick out the smell of wd40. The paper was pretty much falling off of it , i think he wrapped it in the car. It was an extremely rusty multi tool that i think was pulled out of the bottom of an old tool box , it was so scaled up and rusted that it wouldnt open , " the reason for the WD40" lol he had sprayed it down real quick then wrapped it hoping it would be freed up by the time he gave it to me lol.

Never did free up , now it is laying in the bottom of my tool box somewhere rusting ha ha ha.

I laugh everytime i think about it.

At least he tried to loosen it up with the WD-40.

You are lucky Mac he gave you something, In the 26 years I was with my ex her parents never gave me nothing, they did not like me because I never drank with them, I do not consume alcohol, never did I have always had a short temper and thought it best not to make it shorter by drinking, I would always make sure everyone made it home ok. So he did think enough of you to give you a present. The best present I got from my ex was my 4 son's , the worst present the last 7 years with her.

My worst Christmas gift ever was the year my mom got me about 8 wool sweater vests. I was 16 years old and I can tell you that they were the most God aweful things you've ever seen. When I refused to wear them to school she proceeded to cry until I buckled. For that whole year I wore those vests to school and had to change in the car in the parking lot when I got to school and then back into them before I got home. But she never figured it out so shhhh, dont tell her!

Alcoholism is a nasty disease. It was just something that I never go into, thankfully!

It sounds like it is better that he doesn't come over.
