I hate receiving gifts. Unless it's something that you know someone wants, then don't buy it.
I got a gift for christmas that my parents were really happy about buying me, but it's not what I need, but now I have to use it when I don't want to and I also feel really guilty because I don't want it. I really appreciate their effort and it's not because I'm ungrateful, but it's because half of it unusable for my situation and that makes the other half useless too, which means I have to replace half before I can use the other half, so now it puts me in a position of having to spend money that I don't have just so I can use the rest of this stuff that I don't really want/need either. If I don't use it, my parents will notice and then I will feel guilty for not using it, so I have to use it.
Presents are way too stressful.
How was your christmas? How many unwanted gifts did you get? Do you feel like a jerk about it too?
Ah, christmas, the time for feeling like crap.
