  • Worst Christmas Gift Ever!

    I started this thread early because I just had to tell ya for a good laugh. I just received the most unusual and out there Christmas gift I have ever received...from my supervisor at work.



    Last year and for the past couple, she gave everyone in the office (3 of us total) a 50.00 visa gift card...very nice and truly appreciated. This year we think she went off the deep end...get this. We received a card (nice enough) with a printed out coupon which read...entitling the bearer to attend a meeting free of charge with a representative of the social security department to discuss our individual future benefits. I kid you not! And that was it! And by the way, this is a free service from the social security dept anyway... Now how many of you can top THAT! I mean.....really! Next year maybe she'll enroll us in the Jelly of the Month Club!



    So what's your worst....errr...best gift...can you top mine???? (either wait for this year or give us one from years past!

    Probably a donation in my name to the "Human Fund".
    Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

        Carm, it sounds like your boss has been hit by the economy. That or she's trying to drop y'all a not-too-subtle hit about retirement...

                Growing up in my teen years, Christmas and my birthday was all about getting drum gear. My parents couldn't afford to get me a drum set, so I would get one piece on each holiday. I had quality stuff, a Rogers wood dynasonic, a Rogers 20x 14 bass, a zildjian crash, then for Christmas one year I get a Sears hihat (and the junky cymbals that came with it). I was thankful, but I was 16, I cried.

                  Rough sign there! Yikes!



                  I think instead of a present, I had a donation made to Greenpeace for me one year... damned VT hippie family.

                    Last year my father-in-law gave me a hatchet. It may come in handy one day, but I don't know when.

                      I had two weeks vacation time coming one year. I wanted to take both at Christmas. We were really busy, the boss talked me out of it. Said, Why not take them when this job is done.... Three months later, I told him I wanted to take my two weeks. He pulled out the employee handbook and showed me the "Use It, or Lose It" clause concerning vacation time, ( which of course ran Jan-Dec). I did not work for him much after that.
