The worst Christmas gift ever

Posted 19 December 2011 - 04:00 PM

Ok, so what's on your "please do NOT get me this for Christmas this year" list?

For the ladies, I'd think it was any type of clothes. If you get it too small she will say, "is this the size you wish I was?" and if it is too big, you'll hear, "just how big do you think I am, anyway?"

What else should you NEVER get someone for Christmas?

Lol AIDS.

I love clothes for Christmas. Like, I only have 1 pair of jeans, so I would very much appreciate some clothes.

Those cheap make-up kits you get at WalMart/Wallgreens for $2 with a bunch of waxy shit that doesn't work because someone either doesn't know you/care enough about you to get a real gift, and they're usually regifted. Also the cheap bathwash/lotion duo stuck on a teddy bear thing. You know what I'm talking about? Granted, I'm grateful that I got anything at all, but it's kinda the equivalent of saying "crap, I forgot about you! Well, you're a girl, girls like make-up, here's some dried up nail polish and goopy lip gloss in shiny case."

I'm with NeoTifa, those makeup kits or fragrance lotion baskets are awful. I once got a packet of panties, which was mortifying for my pre-teen self.

I think half the fun of getting a gift is seeing what people *think* you would like, but those one size fits all gifts suck that fun out.

Probably video games. No one ever knows what kind of games I like, so I end up getting Cawadooty or Sports games.

A netbook. I don't have a wireless router, they cost the same as a desktop with more power, and the OS never works with the program you want it to.
Oh, and I like the feel of shoving in PCI cards.

Cancer
Reminds me of an "anti-joke" I heard once:

What did the orphan with no arms and no legs get for Christmas?

Nothing says "your a stupid bitch that belongs in the kitchen" like Cooking for dummies from Amazon.

I got insulted upon receiving VB.Net for dummies. I asked for the receipt. I took it to the bookshop. I got money back.
How stupid did he think I was? How stupid was he?

You just insulted a whole lot of intelligent people from the VB forums.

agreed.
Now, where can I learn x86? I feel too bundled up!

EDIT: feel like arguing? give me a EXE under 50 KB that doesn't use .NET
