Unbelievably Supportive Mum Takes Daughter's 'Stripper Career Change' Super Seriously
The chances are that every single one of you reading this has received a shit gift. It's life. People assume they know you and your tastes and sometimes they get it wrong. Or (and probably more likely) it was really cheap and they felt like they had to buy you something.
However, the polite thing to do is to graciously accept said present and then just pop it in a cupboard somewhere. Out of sight, out of mind.
Or, if it's particularly hilarious, take a picture and pop it on Twitter where you could get thousands of likes. This is what Aissa Sencion decided to do.
She told her mum that she was going to drop out of university and become a stripper. Clearly a joke, but when you've got the most supportive mum in the world - nothing is just banter.
When I said I was going to drop out and become a stripper, I didn't mean it literally mom. :sweat_smile::joy: pic.twitter.com/Jn4Rv7GfFI

As you can see, her mum went out and bought her a very nice corset, hot pants and thigh-high boots along with a note that read: "I thought that this would be a great first outfit for the start of your wonderful career :)."
Either her mum's incredibly naive, she's being passive aggressive OR Aissa just found an outfit from her wardrobe and wrote the note herself to get re-tweets. But everything on the internet is real so that's a long-shot.
This got me thinking, what other gifts have people received that were completely wrong? I mean, I was once gifted a half-used make up palette and one of my own necklaces (thanks, mum) but surely there must be worse?
Luckily for me, there's a website called WhyDidYouBuyMeThat.com. Neat.
Here's some of the best...

There's also a whole Reddit thread dedicated to shit gifts...
ainen: "I had mentioned to my uncle one year that I wished I could grow a beard like his. Come Christmas time my uncle hands me the present he got me. I unwrap it and what do you know...It's his beard in a Ziploc bag."
handikat: "A giftcard to a lingerie store from my grandma. The fucked up part wasn't the gift itself, but the fact that she made my poor 19 year old brother go in and buy it. As he told it, the conversation went something like this: Cashier: "shopping for your girlfriend?" Brother: "no, my sister...well my grandma..." Awkward silence..."

kaodonnell: "Three years ago I got a shake weight Christmas morning. When I opened it my dad laughed and yelled "it's for practice when you get bored in the dorms" while making a jacking-off/handjob gesture in front of my grandparents.."
That half-used make up palette is starting to look pretty good now...
