I guess I did not relise just how bad kev and I are about returning things people buy for us. I never stopped and looked at how often we do it, or what it says to the person we do it to. Gifts are a very touchy thing. some people put a lot of thought in it and get you just what youwant, other put alot of thought in it and dont get you what you want. Some just buy something because they feel they should. So what do you do if its something you don't want or need or like? do you say something? Just keep it and sell it in a yard sale, or give it to someone else who does not want it. I think that is a wast of money, and money is very short in our house. I want presents to be a thing of need or desire. I do not want my money wasted on something people do not want. I would like to be told, so I can make it better. I would hate to think my gift, my money, is going to wast. But I see not everyone thinks like me. Some people want us to just accept the gift and keep it in the closet for a year then give it to charity, sell it, or re-gift it to someone else who may not want it.
What to do what to do... I know the polite thing is to say thank you and keep it in the closet, but who said I was polite? :)
