    Dad still has no clue when my birthday is or how old I am, birthday/ xmas present combo's, and the Bo Jackson beckett card guide for the month Jan. I asked for the rookie card, got the magazine with a picture of the card. It felt like a kick in the nuts issued by mom. Now i just ask for a home cooked meal by mom that plans been working great since 02.
    The Best:
    GI JOE aircraft carrier bought for me by grandfather. I got shit for presents that year. He took me to toys R us and remarked pick anything you want.flagg_box.jpg

    back on topic - the worst gift i had on my 21st birthday was having to stay up until 4AM working on a final research project and studying for an exam. My birthday ALWAYS falls in the middle of finals week, so I never could go out and party during my college years.

    When I was six my uncle and aunt told me that they were giving me one of their lambs that was born on their farm that year. Obviously I wasn't too impressed with this at first, but after two months when I heard we were going to visit them I was quite excited. When we got there I wanted to see it, but it had died and they forgot to tell me icon_eek.gif

    Worst than getting nothing was when my parents forgot it was my birthday when I was seven. I thought I would be “surprised” sometime that day, but it never happened. icon_cry.gif

    I dont know if it's the worst per say, but for my 14th birthday, my mom's best friend bought me the Cher Believe CD...... I was ok with it at the time, but looking back, I was like.... "WAS SHE TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING? lady, are you outing me before I even know?"

    It was odd.

    I have the perfect birthday: July 4 (1976, no less). Always a party but far from the holiday season. However, my family and most of my friends don't do presents, and that's just fine with me.

    One year, my colleagues, on hearing that I was getting serious about wildlife spotting, bought me a book called "Scats and Tracks of the Rocky Mountains". A book filled with pictures of animal shit. I loved it!

    I honestly don't think I can remember anything I got while growing up. They were always modest. No big deal - we weren't all that well off anyway. I can remember the parties and friends that were there, and that's good enough for me.

    Nowadays I would rather people post a favorite YouTube video or funny picture on my Facebook wall and give gift money to a charity. I love a good laugh, and if I want something badly enough I'll just buy it myself. And besides, you may forget the things people say but you'll always remember how they made you feel.

    I haven't had a horrible birthday present given to me, but I've not been able to keep the best birthday present I've gotten because of something I couldn't control.

    There was a school trip during one year of HS to Egypt where we were going to tour Cairo and Alexandria for 12 days and see all the sites, and the best part was that the only other people going were 3 of my friends from the soccer team, our favorite teacher, and her husband. But just a few months before the trip the people of Egypt lost it...that sucked big time.

    It wasn't a present, but it happened on my 14th birthday...

    I was in 8th grade and on the basketball team, though i was a bench warmer and didn't get into many games. We had a game against our biggest rival on my birthday. We had gone 11-1 as 7th graders, with our only loss to this team, so I was highly doubtful I would get in the game. I not only got in the game, I scored. And we won.

    I get in the car afterward, feeling euphoric, and my mom said she had to put the dog down that morning. My parents had gotten Flicka two months before I was born, so I'd known her my entire life. She was having some health problems and we knew it was just a matter of time, but apparently that morning she could no longer support herself on her back legs, so there was no choice.

    HndsmKansan saidI haven't had too many crappy gifts, but I think probably receiving a relatively inexpensive cologne called "Stetson" probably ranks.

    I like western clothes, western, belt, buckle, boots (during winter), etc....
    somehow during my college days, a cheap cologne sold in those stores called "Stetson" became a part of the mix. My Dad got it for me, friends did... one year I received 4 bottles of Stetson, including a gift set of two.

    Then I discovered decent cologne and converted, even though it might be $60. or $70.00 a bottle.

    One of my high school friends still gets me "Stetson", even though I told her years ago, I don't wear or want it. For Christmas, 2010, there it was again.
    I just trashed it.

    she was trying to cover up that fake hairicon_idea.gificon_idea.gificon_idea.gificon_idea.gificon_idea.gif

    Cole0505 saidOkay so it doesn't have to be a birthday present, but that's what mine was.

    For one of my teenage years I got given a "mushroom farm" so literally a box of shit with some spores in a tiny plastic bag. I could learn responsibility by growing something, was I believe the theory behind the gift...

    Nothing says Happy Birthday like a box of shit

    Any worse?

    you win!

    @ Hothouse: Shame on you! icon_smile.gif

    My birthday is December 30, so my childhood was filled with combination-Christmas-and-birthday presents. Nothing worse than that.


    Oh yes there is. How about 'nothing' ?
