Stupid Gift...Thursday I was given one of the most thoughtless and stupid gifts ever, a mug with a stuffed monkey, a box of plain m&ms and a "hello kitty" tshirt. (kids size xl). I suppose if I was 12 it would have been a perfect gift, however, I'm 51 and it was from my husband of 24 yrs. I was upset.
If we'd been on good terms, I suppose I could have laughed it off. However, we're not. As strained as our marriage has been, I would have thought he would have put more thought into a gift. I wouldn't have to be a big one... expensive. Bouquet of flowers, gift card from Barnes and Noble... etc.
This kicker is... this morning ( the first time I saw him since Thursday ). He asked me if I liked it. I had to be honest. I was as kind as I could be... I didn't yell. I just told him, if he wasn't going to put more thought into gifts, not to bother. A card would be just fine. He's mad. He's walking around... slamming doors. Obviously pissed. Wanna know something?? I don't care. What am I suppose to do? Say " Oh thank you so much for the 'stupid gift '?
