“Secret Santas have always been a generally horrible experience. One time in the second grade, I had a boy for secret Santa and had absolutely no idea what to get him, so I thought a box of chocolates would be nice. Except that the poor kid turned out to be allergic to peanuts, so he was the only one without a present. I guess ‘life is like a box of chocolates’ doesn’t apply to that guy.

Funny story-I saw that kid the other day for the first time since elementary school…he remembers the whole thing”

Shaina: “I give really good gifts only to get really bad ones in return.  I’m not kidding.  I got socks one time.  I love socks but like the fuzzy good quality ones, not like ones with words on it like “oh great” or weird stuff.  One of my friends who I really liked, I gave her a full out present, I gave her a snow globe, I gave her all this stuff.  Mind you I was in second grade, I wasn’t really creative with my gifts but I still gave her a pretty good gift.  And she gave me socks.  My parents were like, ‘Is that why you gave her all of this, to get socks?'”

Joel:  “One time I got a pack of gum and then they ate it- they didn’t even give it to me.”

“One year everybody gave me socks.  And I mean everybody.  I was getting decorated socks, toe socks, glittery socks, glittery decorated toe socks.  I don’t know if it was a hint or coincidence but I had to pretend I loved them all and now I have a big bag of Christmas socks.”
