I have plenty of experiences with bad gifts but the absolute, most disturbing one I received was from "Charles," a name I'm making up because I don't remember his real name.
Normally, I wouldn't mind receiving that kind of gift from a boyfriend or lover but this person was neither.
I met him, "Charles," at an upscale environment. Charles was an attorney who lived outside of the city. On our very first date, before dinner, he presented me with a nicely gift wrapped box. He urged me to quickly open it. I did and it was a toy (use your imagination). Shocked, I placed it back into the gift box and left. I kept the toy and never spoke to him again.
My friends and I later reflected on this. One friend thought that I should have made a scene and throw the toy at him. Another thought that I should have simply refuse the "gift" and never talk to him again.
What are your thought on this? Also, what kind of disturbing gifts have you received?
