Week #3 – What gift would you give a person you don’t like?

Bloggers Unite Challenges

I’ve been attempting to write this all week but what do you get for someone you don’t like? Why would you spend time, thinking of a gift for someone you don’t want to spend any time with?

That being said, a gift doesn’t always have to be a good thing, you’re not going to like everything you receive so I figured I’d give them a lump of coal to match the darkness of their soul! Muahahahahaha! Yes, I assume someone I don’t like would have a dark soul. It’s not very realistic that I’m going to give someone some coal though, even if it could be hilarious.

I think, the thing I’d give someone I don’t like would be less tangible. As I mentioned above I could give them some of my time or forgiveness or a second chance, depending on the circumstances. While those all sound great, I’m not a big forgiver as I tend to hold a grudge, for a long time and only a few people earn a second chance and well, let’s face it, I’m not going to give someone I don’t like any of my time.

The conclusion I came to is that I’d probably give someone I didn’t like some tolerance and understanding because, ultimately, everyone has reasons for being who they are and acting the way they do. Just because I don’t like something about a person doesn’t mean I can’t at least be tolerant of their choices and understand that there is probably more going on behind the scenes than I’ll ever know.

    Woohoo, first to comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, I really didn’t expect the gift to go in the less tangible direction & I thought that was really creative! I was just going to say I’d give them something I know they’d probably enjoy, even if I don’t like them so as to not seem so petty, but I like that you turned the tangible gift into an intangible one. Very clever! Time is a valuable gift indeed & it should be spent wisely, so giving someone you don’t like the time of day is a pretty good gift, especially if you’re giving them a second chance. ๐Ÿ™‚
