Last week I posted a list of some of the worst gifts a man could give a woman. This week, Fastweb.com asked more than 500 high school and college students the worst gifts they had ever gotten. Their top worst make my list look like the best gifts a person could receive. Here are a few of the “winners”:
•A wooden stick doll without any eyes.
• A used lead pencil.
• Toilet paper.
• A calendar for 2009 that was given in December 2009.
• A dead mouse.
I have to note (with relief) that the last item was not given by a husband to his wife. Apparently a girl gave it to her brother as revenge.
Someone also commented that getting a bad gift is better than getting no gift, and except for the case of the lifeless rodent, I have to agree. Feeling forgotten is much, much worse than not feeling special.
