      Tis the season... I will get us started...

      I am an elementary school teacher so I get plenty of awful gifts, but two coworkers are tied for the worst gift of all time.

      1) An obviously Muslim teacher got a framed 3-D picture of the Virgin Mary.

      2) Another coworker got a stick of USED deodorant. How do we know it was used? The seal was broken and there was a hair in it!

      100% true. I was there!

      It would be irresponsible to give someone a deodorant that wasn't tested

      This year, I have no idea what my wife was thinking...

      In the past, my wife has gotten me...

      1) A GPS because I was always getting lost
      2) Sunglasses for driving on bright winter days
      3) A webcam so I can show my son to his grandfather in Argentina

      This year, my wife got me...

      A decorative wooden bowl!

      I STILL do not understand this one!

      For the last 2 weeks she has been telling me that I would hate my gift. Now I see why! Ah, she is a good woman regardless!

      Last Christmas I gave my friend a butt plug, he didn't know what it was and unpacked it in front of his friends and family. I'll never forget the look on his father's face.

      Maybe you should use it as a hat?

      OR....

      Maybe it's for you to sit on whilst you play an online session...you know so you dont have to stop to poop...you could just do it there and then...

      I prefer the first of my two suggestions though.

      Lol, it reminds me of the Simpsons when Itchy is president of the United States and presses the "accidental" launch button when he discovers that Scratchy is still alive at the moon. Then nuclear weapons are instantly launched from all over America.

      maybe she made it herself, :f_cool: or it has something to do with your relationship, but you don't remember. dunno. Maybe she allways wanted decorative bowl so she bought it for you. There are people who want something and when noone gifts that to them, they gift it to something :s_cool:

      She isn't that kind of woman, however, now that I think about it, it IS occupying a prominent place on the entertainment centre! And I certainly didn't put it there!
