I Usually Hate Receiving any Gifts

Here’s why.  People seem cheap as hell when it comes to getting anyone a gift.   Yes I’ll say it.   I don’t do that because I feel that considerable thought should go into getting a gift for someone.   I’ll give you an example.   See I pay attention to what a person wants or says that they want an example might be something they saw in a window.   If its within my means I might try to get that particular gift for that person or I might get it even if it isn’t within my means.   I believe firmly that everyone when buying something for someone else makes sure IT’S something that they want!  Not what YOU think that they might want.   To me it’s selfish.

Know what else I can’t stand REGIFTING or recycling a gift.  What that means is you have something on your shelf, you wrap it up then give it to someone passing it off as something you bought.   Really?   Can you say lazy?!  I’ve had that done to me & it feels humiliating not to mention that the person that does this has no class whatsoever.      I prefer not to get anything, if you want to make something like knitting a sweater or something made with your own hands I think that’s real nice.

This is coming from a woman who doesn’t have anyone in her life, nor family I mean I can’t even get the Mother to buy a decent birthday card she has grown so indifferent it just does not matter.   Who cares.    I swear living on the West Coast people over here sure are a lazy lot who could care less about you.   Oh and the customer service is lousy everywhere you go, b/c of high incompetence + insecurity.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America. If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact: Yogibeara425@hushmail.com
