I am always on the lookout for those “worst gift ever” Mother’s Day stories, because I know that more often than not, I usually need to make an emergency trip back to the store to exchange that Chia mother’s head some slick clerk talked me into.
And don’t even get me started on car wax. Apparently it’s not as appreciated as the good people at Turtle Wax would have you believe. Honestly, who knew?
But this year, there’s a whole new breed of “worst gift” ideas, and some of them left even this moron shaking his head: Who buys this stuff for Mother’s Day?
Charlene over at Shine compiled a great list, with Jillian Michael’s “30 Day Shred” at the top.
“Instead of viewing it as a way to kickstart a new fitness plan, she may see it as hint that you’re not happy with her body.”
This seems like a no-brainer. Does anyone really want to workout on Mother’s Day — other than utilizing the muscles required to shoo away the children or lift that champagne flute?
And then there’s the personal trainer idea. Again, unless the mom in your life specifically advises you to go buy her some time at the gym, I’m guessing you’re not going to be having sex for a very long time if this is under the Mother’s Day Tree that the good people at Hallmark talked you into buying.
But my favorite so far, in the world of worst gifts ever: Nothing.
Do dads really do this? Think that if your wife, the mother of your kids, is not your mom, then, well, you can save a few bucks? Dude, even Turtle Wax is better than this idea.
Does anyone go the “nothing” route?
