Inappropriate responses to receiving a homemade Christmas gift.
-“Are you mad at me?”
-“Look, if cash is a little tight, you could have asked for a loan.”
-“A gag gift, funny.”
-“You do know the gift exchange limit was $50, right?”
-“It is the thought that counts, you enjoy that $100 Itunes Gift card you asked for and I’ll enjoy this 2 cups of Nut and Bolts snack mix you made, threw in an old mayonnaise jar and wrapped a ribbon around.”
(DISCLAIMER: Before I get a bunch of messages extolling “it’s the thought counts” or “Jesus is the reason for the season”, let me just say that due to one Christmas when I was 12 years old where we had to use the Food Bank and beg the power company to keep the power on, I assure you I know what the true meaning of Christmas is. I think everyone once in their life should have a Food Bank Christmas; it really keeps the holidays in perspective.)
