Pictures of your kid(s) as a sole Christmas present for someone you're closely related to is bullshit and no one gives a shit about them.

Thanks for filling up my trashcan.

The "PSA" thing has done its dash and we can stop it now.

The "PSA" thing has been around for decades...

I agree with the OP...no one gives a shit about having a picture of little Billy...period...Id rather get a roll of toilet paper then pictures...

Thats how you know you were at the bottom of someones christmas list.

It's like saying they remember you, but they also remember how much they don't like you, so here's a picture to remind you how much they don't like you. It's worse than getting nothing :p

Wow, that's the worst possible present. That is so much fail, I'd have a hard time feigning appreciation for a gift like that.

Seawolf, what was your reaction upon receiving the gift? fake tears of joy?

I whispered "oh pictures" and just put them back in whatever bag they came from. My sister knows I don't give a shit about them but she keeps giving them to me anyway.

I am going to tell her to save the $1 it took to make and never give them to me as gifts again, but I will obviously look like an asshole and the family will probably get upset with me.

Fucking a

if my sister gave me a picture of my niece as her only gift, I'd likely stop getting gifts for my sister/brother-in-law and just spend more on my niece instead.

I have 2 kids and even I wouldn't want to send out pics of my kids... really nobody actually cares but yourself.

I'd rather have pictures of the kids than pictures of the pets. I like pets, but there's no way I'm hanging a picture of my sister's dogs anywhere in my house. Yes, that's what I got from her. I sent her a first-edition of a book she likes. Next year, no gift for her. And certainly no gifts for the dogs. She already spoils them rotten.

lol that's sad. A Christmas card, ok, but an actual gift? lawls.

Actually I noticed the latest fad seems to be walmart Christmas cards. IMO I find Christmas cards are a waste of resources, they all get thrown out after the holidays anyway. Walmart must make a killing off these though. They have mass production resources so bet it costs them next to nothing to produce.

Whatever Scrooge McFuck... Not everyone wants to send you a gold ingot. Be happy anyone remembers you at all.
