It's so ugly I don't know what to do... - Page 2

post #31 of 48
I know how that feels! My hubby bought me a tshirt that has the Maori Haka on it - he is American and he thinks that having the maori language on a tshirt is so cool. But when you are a kiwi, it isn't.

This is so funny!

I'm so glad my boyfriend doesn't just randomly buy me stuff. He lets me pick things out and then buys it for me. My future MIL has pretty good taste, I have borrowed some of her clothes before and she has bought me clothes for Christmas and I always like them.

Well, the MIL bit makes more sense! LOL I agree wear it when she comes over, maybe get some fake bad granny teeth to complete the look!

The gifts you received is too funny. I don't remember getting anything THAT bad!

AMEN! It's so sweet that he wanted to do something nice for you. He didn't actually succeed, but he tried!

He just got home and explained that I DON'T have to wear it. Oh, when she comes over next I am totally putting it on and I'll dress it up too!

I'm off to find the matching hat!
My Mom often laughs about the pair of panties that her MIL gave her at her wedding shower. They were too big. (It even pissed Dad off that his mother would do that!) Mom thanked her and put them in the bottom of her underwear drawer. Int he final month of her pregnancy with me she pulled them out and finally wore them.

We both had a big laugh when I tried it on. It's HUGE!

For something that is so ugly it sure has brightened my day.

Oh, thank goodness!

My MIL gave me a hideous sweater, too, two years ago for Christmas. It was black acrylic (ugh!) with patches of lepard print on the front. It was so awful!

Sounds like it would fit me Only thing I ever received from any ex-boyrfriend's was a hard time At least your MIL is thinking of you!

Hey, it's still a good holiday sweater for Halloween or Thanksgiving. I got some weird clothes from my mom..(I love cats, but I don't want a coat completely covered in cats!)...I think it's the generation thing. Please tell me it doesn't have any sequins or bangles on it.

LOL! That is really funny. It's the thought that counts remember Thank him and let him know that is sweet he is thinking of you, then "misplace" it or something, surely you aren't expected to wear it in the middle of summer.

Ok, now that we know it is the work of your MIL and not DH - You HAVE to get us pics! :lol3

No wonder DH just gave it and left - He knew what you would really think of it!

Worst advice EVER!

That just lets your husband think you liked the gift and then you can end up recieving similar gifts from then on. You should always do the right thing and gently explain why the gift is unsuitable

I don't think the cardie looks that bad btw

It is the thought that counts isn't it? My hubby knows better then to just "randomly" buy me clothes. He follows me around stores at Christmas time and watches what I touch. I make sure that if I am looking at something for my mom or Oma I tell him or I may end up with the granny nighty.

Apparently he hasn't watched today's episode of Oprah lol that is hysterical Heather!!!!!! You should order him a hideous sweater vest for father's day from the "boys" and keep asking him if he likes it in a really nice way too funny at least he was thinking about you tough and loves ya! poor guy

this reminds me of the first Valentines day Colin and i spent together- earlier that week we had gone to Victorias Secret and i was oooh and aaahhhing over this gorgeous outfit i saw. Well the poor guy went back and bought what he thought was the same outfit. Only this thing had more ruffles than a 5 yr old girls socks and it was red and pink and fluffy- i looked like a cupcake It was hilarious though but kinda cute. Aww i love Colin - he ment well
