I work in a small office where it is traditional to give a small $5 to $10 dollar gift to each of our coworkers. (There are five of us.) One of my coworkers is gone for the week so she left my gift on my desk in a can with a small note saying Warning!! Homemade Present! (Pictured above). I opened the can and found inside something that perhaps may be the worst christmas gift ever given in recorded history. A Rubberband Ball???!!????
Am I missing something here? Since when did taking office supplies and fashioning them into some geometric shape become something that you can pass off to a fellow coworker as a gift? To me it seems like she is saying, “I hate you so much that I am just going to give you a lump of rubber.” Am I off on this? Has anybody received something worse than elastics for Christmas?
If you chose I’ve received worse, please put in the comments what it was. You have me curious.
