The Unwanted Gift
A couple of months ago I bought Aiden a booster seat. When I got home and opened the box there was almost no assembly (which is always nice!) and I pretty much just clicked a couple of things together while barely looking at the directions. I was done and ready to throw the box away but I'm very anal and had to double check in the box that I hadn't missed any directions or parts. In the very bottom of the box was a little purple envelope. I thought maybe it was the warranty info or something so I grabbed it. There was nothing on the outside but I was more than a little surprised by what was on the inside. It was a card from a baby shower with a message along the lines of "Congrats on your baby girl - The Smith Family loves you!" I just started laughing and had to show G. He of course got a big kick out of it too and we decided that apparently the receiver of the gift didn't want it and apparently didn't think to look inside for a card before returning it.
So I have a question - have you had to take gifts back? Do you check for cards or anything of that sort? What's the worst gift you've ever received or the least wanted one?
I'll give me answer here. The first Christmas after G and I got married I mentioned that I didn't get a cake stand for our wedding and how much I would really love to have one. Apparently I mentioned it a few too many times because I ended up with 3! I actually decided to keep two of them because they were both so pretty in different ways but took back 1. The nice thing was that my aunt got a big laugh over it and of course had no problem with me returning it to get something else. Of course I also didn't return it with a card left in the box!!
So please, share any funny gift stories you have, I would love to hear them.
