The "NG strikes again" gift-hating game!
« on: December 08, 2007, 05:17:43 PM »
In honor of Shay's NG Strikes Again thread, it's time to find fault with any gift, no matter how wonderful.

(The original thread is here: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=20173.0)

Here's how it goes. You "give a gift" to the next poster. The person who replies then must find a way that your gift if offensive, awful, insufficient, or otherwise wrongheaded.  Then, after doing so, that person gives a gift.

Have fun. Oh, and while you're at it, here--have this lovely assortment of fruit.

Oh no!  It will probably have those fruit flies in it.  And how do you know whether or not I'm allergic to some of the fruit in it? 

Here is a lovely sweater for you.

ZOMG! Don't you know they have to subjugate sheep to make these things? You hate animals don't you.

Fancy?  You just want to rub it in my face that you can afford chocolate that's FANCY!  What's wrong with plain old Hershey's or Dove?

Here's an Applebee's gift card.

Applebee's?  You think that's my idea of fine dining?

Here's a DVD of Idiocracy.

Is this because you think I'm stewpid? I keep putting the little silver disks in my VCR but it won't play them.

Here's a nice handmade picture frame.

Ack! Video games! Don't you know that things like Mario Galaxy and Katamari Damacy turn kids into sociopaths!

I went to Jareds. Here's some ruby earings.

I hate rubies!  Couldn't you have gotten something less showy?
Here is a gc for the 5th Harry Potter movie.

Oh, come on--don't you know Harry Potter promotes healthy friendships, and I have no friends? Rub it in, why don't you?

I've gotten you a lovely teddy bear that plays "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" when you squeeze its tummy.

Oh great, something that needs batteries and makes a racket!

How would you like a holiday basket with summer sausage, petit fours and a cheese log.
No matter where you go, there you are...

What about the vegans and vegetarians?  Didn't really think that one through, did you??

Here's a lovely scented soap and lotion set.

Couldn't take the time to pick me out a REAL gift?  A gift card is sooooo impersonal.

Here is a 12 month subscription to the "Fruit of the Month" club from Harry and David.
