You know those girls who gather up all their Christmas gifts on Boxing Day and head down to High Street or the nearest Mall to exchange everything for the items that they actually want? I have always been of the impression that those girls were not an example to emulate. A gift is a gift, and whenever possible we should enjoy and appreciate what we've been given, out of appreciation for the giver. Right? Right?
But apparently that level of NON-appreciation is hardly worthy of notice. The other day I was walking down the street in Bristol and passed this:
Perhaps by "gift" they meant it was a prize won on a tele challenge? Perhaps the person who gave it to them mail-ordered it from Timbuktu?
Otherwise, what are the odds that the giver wouldn't see this sign? Actually, I assume the odds were quite high, or else it'd have been a bit too cheeky. BUT... what about a friend of the giver? Word could get back. Or what about a friend of the recipient? I'd be kind of embarassed for my friends to see me attempt something like that.
Can honesty go too far?
