You hate it. You'd rather be dead than use it. The very sight of it makes you shudder. To have been given it as a present is an insult.

Yet you're stuck with it, because you can't go back to your boyfriend or your aunt or your workmate and ask them to help you ditch the Christmas present they spent time picking for you.

They're so sure it's right for you, they didn't even include the receipt. Worst of all, they'll expect to see you wearing it or using it next week.
