Any duds this year?

Did you (or your s/o or kids) get anything that wasn't wanted, didn't fit right or didn't work right? Did you take it back?

Everything went pretty great for us (DH and I asked our family not to get us anything, though we did each get a couple of things). Really the only "problem" was that my son got a t-shirt that was about 5 sizes too big (ha!), so I exchanged that for 2 pairs of pants (eh, between myself and other family members, he got a ton of new shirts, he needed a couple more pairs of pants instead) and the CD boombox that I bought him, the CD player didn't work, so I exchanged it for a working one. But not bad all in all.

What about you?

  • I only have to return two things out of many so it wasn't too bad!

  • Yes...two weeks ago I got the sniffles. I'm in a lot of pain. The dogs keep throwing up on the rugs. other than that, I could have done without the socks that are too small!

  • Oh, I forgot...their were 2 remote control things that my son got (same ones that gave him the oversized t-shirt), one was a truck the other was a robot dinosaur. Both stopped working within minutes, and I even put in another new pair of batteries afterwards and they still wouldn't work. But they were really cheap toys, so I wasn't expecting much from them.

  • Ok, the Spongebob boombox I doesn't have headphone jacks, and I bought kid headphones (they automatically lower the volume) for it and can't use them (at least not for it). That bums me out. Cute boombox though!
