Has anyone else been given hand-me-downs that were less than useful? It seems to happen pretty regularly to me.
I don't want sound ungrateful, I've been given a lot of wonderful things for DS, but then there are times I feel like people are giving us stuff just to save chucking it out themselves.
Today I sat down with DS to put together a puzzle someone passed on to him. There were so many pieces missing you couldn't even make out what the picture was supposed to be.
Then there was the time a work acquaintance brought in a bag of clothes her 16yo DS had just grown out of...my DS is 2! We live in a tiny house and there's no way I'm holding onto that sort of thing for 10+ years!
Rusty, broken bikes, bags of stained hole-filled clothes (including undies!) and a desk that practically shoots splinters as you walk past are just a few I can think of.
What things have people given you that have left you shaking your head?
