    Default I am upset and unhappy

    Last year, I sent my friend a T-shirt which has been printed her photo on it as birthday present. I was so happy when I gave her the so-call present because I think it is a little special. Today my friend is moving to another location and I went there to help her. I found the T-shirt I sent to her was in the corner of the house. It is full of dust. But her other clothes were put in the bureau in order. Maybe she doesn't like the T-shirt at all. A long time, I haven't say any words. Just so upset!!

    I agree that it can be upsetting when people don't like the gift you get them, but what were your expectations of what she was going to do with this tshirt?

    It sounds like the sentimental kind of gift that wouldn't get much use, but is a really nice idea.

    She could have stored it nicely, but I can see why she might not wear it.

    You'd probably look like a bit of a tool wandering around with a t-shirt with yourself printed on the front.

    I wouldn't end the friendship over it or anything. I'd just perhaps reconsider giving sentimental gifts in future. Some people just don't appreciate them (because if I was given a shirt like that, it would never ever be worn, but it wouldn't be treated like crap either).

    Exactly! If you have concerns about a member use the report function otherwise please remember to post in the spirit of BubHub ... 'hunting' is not acceptable.

    I agree with everything that Sassy has said.

    I also wanted to add that just because she didn't love your gift, doesn't mean that she doesn't love you. My DH can get some really crappy gifts for me but he is always so excited about it, that I know the thought and effort that went into it and that is all that matters to me.

    I can see why your upset by it but do agree with pp's not something to end a friendship over.

    The OP is fake, I've reported several of their posts.

    Really? They've posted quite a few times though.... What makes you say it's a fake ?

    I don't think they're 'fake'. I don't think the op's first language is English. Hence why many of their posts don't make a lot of sense.
