    Question Can you be unhappy with gifts?

    Is it allowed to be unhappy with gifts that you recive, or do you have to be satisfied with what you get?

    You mean like making an scene?

    I don't like getting clothes from people that don't know me well, if that's what you mean. They either get my size wrong or it's not my style is that you mean. But I don't go and be like "Yo! I don't like your gift!".

    That, or just being ungrateful in general.
    Just unhappy in general; maybe asking for the receipt so you can trade it for something else.

    It depends on the gift, I guess...like clothes or anything that requires a size or look.

    But plain out asking for a receipt is rude.

    So what do you do with a gift that you don't want at all? Perhaps a gift that you have told people many times that you don't want for different reasons, maybe don't have any room for it, already have x-number of that thing or perhaps even can't have it because you are allergic to it? But still every year, you'll get it - despise how many times you have told people that you don't want it. What do you do?

    In my eyes, if it's a good friend or a family member I'll tell them after...not straight away. If it's a someone I'm no close with...I don't really do it since I don't know them like that so it's more rude to me.

    Not even if you're really allergic to it? Wouldn't you say something then? Not even if they, year after year, continue to give you that thing?
    Don't you think you would "snap" eventually?

    A lot of times I've been a little disappointed with the presents I've gotten - such as one year I got a shirt, which was nice and all, but it was unfortunately far too small for me to wear.

    Of course, nobody is perfect; I'm not going to say I don't want the presents, because that would be rude. But these days all I get is clothes and Toblerone, so most people tend to ask me beforehand if the clothes are acceptable. I know it means it's not much of a 'surprise' but in this day and age and especially at my age I'm not going to complain about that.

    My sister did surprise me with some shirts that she probably asked mum if they'd fit me, but they did make my Christmas since I didn't expect them and that one of them just says "meh." on it made me laugh.

    Then again, at my age the whole sparkle behind Christmas has kinda faded. As annoying and/or hipster as I may sound, by the time you hit 21 Christmas isn't really that big a deal for you anymore. Usually because you're too old to be given lavish gifts and even if your parents wanted to you'd probably already bought them with your own money O_o;
    : The Game. You just lost it. :

    I would be like "This dude is freaking stupid after all these times that I told him" (But people forget, we aren't perfect) in my mind but "snap"? You do realize they don't have to give you crap, right? "Snapping" ...insulting them and getting all over their face is straight rude. I'll be honest and tell you that barely happened to me.

    Only in situations like a shirt that doesn't fit me or it's not my style or I already own it (Like Video games and such), especially for the latter...It doesn't make sense to get something you already own.

    And still people get things people already know they have.

    It's just that I read a comment from someone on another website saying that she always gets a certain thing from a close relative of hers- that she is VERY allergic to (now we are talking almost need-to-go-to-the-hospital-allergic, and she have told that relative about it many times [every year]). Reading that made me think.

    it's simple, just don't use it....You don't have to "snap" and get all over their face.

    Default Re: Can you be unhappy with gifts?

    Is it normal to be disappointed when you don't get what you expected? Yes. Such is the nature of unfulfilled expectations.

    Should you show your disappointment? No. You are not entitled to gifts. Nobody has to give you anything, so you should be grateful when you do get a gift.

    Im still not sure what I think about all this, since I really havn't though about this before.


    In the situation that the woman I mentioned before was in I think that something needs to be done/said, but still im not sure on what that something should be yet... How do you handle people that just doesn't get in the "message" into their heads? Comments and normal sit-down-to-talk:talk havn't worked so maybe "snapping" is actually the best option in any similar situation like that? Since the people who gives the gift has this far refused to listen / taken any bigger notice about what she have said (since they still continue to give that gift to her), then perhaps "snapping" would be the actual thing that finally open their eyes? Like a "eye-opener"?

    People that doesn't take much consideration to, for example, other peoples allergies, is not something that uncommon.

    Like Eris and I said already; people don't have to give you crap at all. Getting gifts is a privileged, not something you're entitled to.

    Just don't use it or sell it...which that's bad in a way, it's a lot better and less rude than screaming at the person's face telling him/her how dense she/he is.

    As long as it is better than not getting anything, yes. If it's worse than not getting anything (say I key your car as a present), then you can be rightfully upset.

    Again, this was something she could need to go to the hospital for, even if it's still in the same room as her. So it's a serious allergy.
    You can get a hard time breathing, and perhaps needs to go acute to the hospital. I think it's hard to be grateful for a gift like that.

    Now it sounds like someone being well-mannered is far more important then someones healt. I just can't agree on that one.

    I don't know what I should've done... It's hard to know since Im not even that allergic to anything. A part of me feels like it's totally alright to tell them one thing or another - since it's her health and possible her life we are talking about, but the other part of me feels that it's just so foreign for me to actually "snap" at someone like that when getting a present... It feels really rude, I admit that but in the end.. I think (if it where me) that after a certain number of times getting that presents, and after a number of times saying that I can't tolerate it exc (but said in a nice way) I think I actually would snap eventually. But now Im just imagining in my head how it would be to be that allergic to something - I have no idea at all. I can only imagine and belive, and hope, that someone will and should put their health/life infront of being nice and well-mannered.

    ------------------
    No one in here who is really allergic? Or knows someone who is that? What would you have done?

    I think it's hard to do if someone comes and gives you the presents, like walks to you and then litteraly places the gift in your hands.
    Or, if someone has wrapped it into alot of paper and then you notice it while opening the gift. o_o
