Care to share a gift-giving flop?
While giving someone that perfect present can feel pretty great, giving that not-so-perfect gift can be pretty amusing.
One year, my then-boyfriend saw a kid zip by on a pair of Heelys and commented on how cool they were. So naturally that following Christmas, I bought him a pair.
His response when he opened the box was Are you trying to kill me?! I was rolling on the floor laughing. Literally. On the floor.
I’d come by his work place after work and his co-workers were giving us odd looks. Can’t really blame them if you look at it from their perspective.
- girlfriend gives boyfriend box
– boyfriend opens said box
– boyfriends exclaims
Are you trying to kill me?!
– girlfriend falls to the floor laughing hysterically
We are now married with two kids. I have not made any further attempts on his life.
