It's getting about that time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. You find out just how someone really feels about you by the type of gift they give you for Christmas. No gift says screw YOU like a Chia pet. That has to be the worst gift in history, especially for Christmas. I would be less offended if someone forgot me than to receive one of those. What the hell kind of enjoyment can someone get from a Chia pet? We all had a day when even a slinky or some silly putty could keep us entertained for an hour but C'mon! What pisses me off about receiving a Chia pet is you know the person who sent it must have just completed their Christmas shopping and was at the checkout line when they spotted them and thought "Oh I forgot about **** head!" Another Christmas gift that says "I could care less but felt obligated" are those sausage sampler boxes. We've all seen them they have a variety of sausages, cheeses, crackers and if the person who sent it had a heart and dug deep and splurged a couple of extra bucks you'll get a small container of jelly with it. I've actually received a few of those. Honestly I don't mind receiving them anymore because you can just put them away and give them out the following Christmas. : I find they really cut down on your Christmas shopping every year and they make an excellent gift for a relative you haven't seen in years. I have an uncle I haven't seen in 15 years and he sends me one every year. I just rewrap it and send it back to him the following Christmas. :tongue: We've been sending it back and forth to each other for over a decade. A couple of years ago I had a cousin send me an ant farm....MERRY CHRISTMAS! It included a glass case, a bag of dirt and a jar of worker ants. What the hell kind of gift is that to give a 35 yr old man? My Mom told me to be nice and send him something to make it at least appear like I care so I debated between a korky universal flapper tank ball for his toilet or a top of the line enema bag that included a comfort nozzle and a solution to cleanse his colon. I opted for the tank ball.
