Remember your vent about MILs crappy gifts a while ago?
Well, I got another bundle-full of crummy clothes again this year from MIL.
One massive green shirt is a size 2XL... One awful, non-stretchy material, kinda silky, but not, purple shirt is a size XL... One beige sweater (FUGLY) is a size SMALL and one grey-striped sweater is a Medium... WTF?!
I was just like "oh... um...ok...um... thnx." I could tell how embarrassed DH was, so I tried to keep my displeasure to myself. He received the same kind of crap - something in a 2XL that he literally just gave right to his mom and said "you know I'm not this big; give this to Manoli (his brother)." Oh, and a massive, brown plaid super-heavy cardigan that he just shook his head at and stuffed back in the box.
My mom and I decided that she shops at flea-markets for all this crap.
Nothing has tags on it... nothing has labels on it (except for the 2XL green shirt - says Daisy Fuentes). And some of the clothes come in dirty looking plastic bags.
She was also appauled that my mother bought stuff for Mariana - she actually gave me a "pfffff!" when she saw some of the beautful clothes.
Oh, and drumroll, please! Peter's sister bought me a pilled-up, used black sweater (no labels, no tags) and bought Peter a 6 pack of black socks....
Any insight? Anyone?
Receiving all this crap drives me nuts because then I have to figure out how to get rid of it without offending DH... I know he's mortified by the whole situation.
Sorry this turned out to be so long!
