Let me explain. I've known this girl for almost three years, we hang out pretty frequently so I would say she knows me fairly well to pick out a gift. Right? She asked me what top size I am and I told her an XS. She purchased me a tank top that I thought was pretty cute but when I held it up I thought to myself "whoa, this is pretty big." I glanced at the tag to see that it was a Medium. Um, okay? This was just the beginning. My main issue came from the next gift.
One of the things this girl and I 'bonded' over was that fact that we both don't drink. I've been out with her plenty of times for her to see that I order a Shirley Temple, soda, or water. Never an alcoholic beverage. Following? She then hands me a bottle of mojito mix. I really didn't know how to respond. At first, I thought maybe it was a gag gift so I laughed but she wasn't laughing. Then I'm thinking "Are you serious?" She was. So I said "Remember, I don't drink." I had to convince her for a few minutes and then she was like "Oh yeah, well give it to someone else." Uhh... most of my friends don't drink and I don't like the idea of giving someone a gift because someone gave me something I don't like or use.
I'm disheartened because it wasn't a thoughtful gift. I would've rather a gift certificate (which aren't always bad if it's for a place you like to shop). So I ended up handing them both back to her and she said she'll get me a shirt in my size. Does that make things right? Should I be offended? How would you react?
