Ouch – she hates me because I LOVE my gift!
Many years ago I received a lovely Gold necklace from my (then)
boyfriend and I had a very jealous reaction from my (then) step-sisters who were convinced the necklace was from their dad (my step-dad) as oppose to from my boyfriend. It was a very uncomfortable situation and no amount of reassurance placated them. I think they couldn’t believe my boyfriend could afford such an expensive gift. It was very nice.
So … has someone taken the shine off a gift you’ve received?
