  1. First off, OUCH! WOW!
    Second, I don’t suck, because I’m awesome.
    Third, I think you should Facebook Jerrica and Eric about this trip.
    Products I personally like eos lip balm.
    Now the worst gift I got was a showerhead. I just wanted to cry. I had even given him a list. I gave him a detail list of what I wanted with just two items.

    1. LOL. A shower head? I think I would have cried. AND I think it's an awesome idea to Facebook Jerrica and Eric. Off to do that now. ;)

    4. He has the following Christmas I got a kindle. Downside I couldn't get any books, because I had to wait for a payday. Since I didn't get a giftcard to get books. Eventually he redeemed himself.

  2. The worst gift I ever received was through a Secret Santa exchange at work. There was a secretary who hated me and she drew my name. It was a hideous air freshener from the dollar store, and it was made to look like a lamp with plastic "crystals" dangling from the shade. It came with a square piece of adhesive so I could mount it on my dashboard if I wanted. LOL! The worst part was my boss who went on and on about what a nice gift it was. I loved the day I became that secretary's boss. Bwahahaha!!!

    1. LOL. That sounds so evil of you, Sam. And I know you're not evil. So... did you turn that secretary around and now she loves you? ;)

    2. That sounds like a really nice gift, Sam. I think you should have put it on your dashboard to remind you of that lovely secretary. LOL!

  3. My worst gift ever was given to me by my brother on my 16th birthday. He carefully wrapped up a small stack of my own books lol. He climbed into attic and dug out a handful of my keepers. Even then I knew what I'd read and hadn't read.

    1. He wrapped up YOUR own books to give you? How old was he? I'm assuming old enough to know better...

    2. He was 14 and yes I'm sure he did, at the time I was so offended all while knowing it was the thought that counted.

  4. I do not suck, either. :-P

    And just how much did you have to drink, Ava? :-)

  7. Worst gift I ever received was some horrid smelling perfume. I got it in an office secret Santa thing years ago. The stuff stunk!

    1. Office secret Santa's are the worse, Sara! My nose itches on your behalf. ;)

  8. I can't remember getting any really bad gifts. I've gotten some that didn't appeal to me for whatever reason, but they weren't really bad gifts.
