送錯禮物顧人怨The Most Unwanted Christmas Gifts





今年耶誕節,收到大家送的禮物與卡片感到好開心啊!感謝大家。
教師節的時候我收到了燕窩,今年有蜂蜜跟CD還有巧克力,實在太幸福。

不過佳節剛過,就在網路上讀到一篇最不受歡迎的耶誕禮物文章
不曉得大家知不知道,在國外,通常貼心的送禮者,會將
購買禮物時的發票(收據receipt)一併放在禮盒中,目的是收禮者要是不喜歡
還可以拿著收據去店裡換貨(甚至退錢)。

儘管說送禮心意最重要,it's the thought that counts
不過那畢竟是客套話啦,下面的短文列出五種最不受歡迎禮物
按照排名,一一列舉。加減閱讀一下,增加贈禮IQ也不錯。
我的經驗是,女生不見得都喜歡3C商品,男生也不喜歡圍巾。
我有朋友跟我哭訴,結婚紀念日,老公送他電腦防毒軟體三年
還沾沾自喜。唉,這年頭什麼狀況都可能發生。下回送禮前
記得問對方喜歡什麼再掏錢喔!
