Anyway, to cut to the chase, here's where to list the worst christmas presents you have received (or given).
The worst I've ever had was when visiting my ex-wife's family. I wouldn't say I was the greatest buyer and wrapper of presents, but I'd made an effort, and tried to wrap all my gifts neatly and so on. So, we're all sitting around, handing out presents, when I get my selection handed to me by my father-in-law...
I begin to unwrap each of the hastily-wrapped packages, my heart sinking with each one I open and each fake smile and thank you I have to mouth... my 'presents' included: pseudo-leather driving gloves, a box of travel sweets, and one of those sodding pine tree car air-fresheners. Guess who'd gone to the 24 hour garage to get my presents?
