I’m not sure how my family sees me and my sis. I always wonder when we get a “gift box” given to us or sent to us.
It’s always stuff like, boxes of mismatched socks, pan lids with no pans, board games with half the pieces missing, old mugs from long ago and warped tupperware. Before we moved here, we ended up with three different relatives all trying to give us their old sofa. So three huge sofas. My Mom had to call goodwill for a pick up.
So, my sister’s birthday just passed… and the “gift” boxes are still arriving. This morning it was a nice box with some chipped shot glasses, some dull kitchen knives, and a huge puffy red fake fur coat, it matched the color of her hair.
I’m trying not to be insulted. A gift is a gift, but I’m starting to be insulted. I think it was the shot glasses…
The knives can be sharpened for $5.00 at the Mom and Pop hardware store. The puffy coat my sis says can be dyed to a nice dark brown and be turned into a blanket.
But the shot glasses? really? She’s 18 and I’m staying sober.
Does it say “goodwill drop off” above my door?
Yes, I’ll have a large VENTi. I would like some cheese with my whine.
Do other people have this situation happening? Again, trying not to look a gift horse in the mouth.
