Every year, there are the same few people that likes to exchange gifts and never fails that these gifts are either from a liquidation bin, second hand, damaged, etc. Totally useless garbage that I put in the trash can as soon I they leave or when I get home! However, we do sometimes get a good laugh out of it because it is so pathetic. It is common knowledge that these same people are known to be cheap. What kills me is that I spend money on giving them back gifts that are decent. As much as I would like to give them back garbage gifts, I would feel too embarrass to do so. I have given so many hints to them about not exchanging gifts but I guess it is forgotten when the next year comes. Just dreading what crap I will be getting this year.
