FUN MONDAY - Worst gift
Eastcoastlife asks us following question :
When it comes to gift-giving and receiving, men and women differ on many things. Are men easier to please? Show us the best and worst gift(s) you have ever received from your spouse/partner/lover?
That's far from being an easy question ! I don't know if man are easier to please than women. A gift is a gift and some people are never happy regardless the sex.
Unfortunately I don't remember any gift which was worse than a Christmas gift I got from my mother ! She had asked me what I wanted and I had told her that I needed a new toaster which would fit in my white/red kitchen.
She agreed and I got the toaster ! When I had unwrapped the package, there was a new green toaster in it with pink roses ! A horror ! Imagine that in my red kitchen !
Amongst the thousand toaster pictures on Google I couldn't find one who looked nearly as ugly as the one I got. My mother loved green and she thought everybody should love green ! No matter the colors of your house. Of course I gave this toaster to somebody who loved green and I bought a white one.
