Everybody can probably remember the best Christmas present they ever got, but do you remember the worst present you ever received?

The Best I Ever Got

The best present I ever got in my life was a new stereo when I was 14 years old. My mom kept telling me I wasn't getting it - and finally pulled it out at the end and surprised me. This was one of those stereo systems with two-foot-tall speakers and came with a turntable, 8-Track tape player, and AM/FM tuner. I'll never forget it.

Trying To Remember the Worst Present

The same would not be true concerning the worst present I have ever received. I'd have to think long and hard about it to come up with one. Well, except for that one that has popped up from time to time over the years - the dreaded fruitcake. I may not remember who did the giving, but I well remember the part about receiving it.

I Am Not A Fruitcake

I may be a fruitcake, but I'm not a fruitcake kind of guy. People who know me, know I hate fruitcakes. People who don't know me, buy me fruitcakes for Christmas.

Just for fun, I thought we would put the question out there and see what folks would say. Some people gave hilarious answers, some responded with sad answers, and some just took it way too seriously. Feel free to join the conversation.
