This is a question Secret Santa

Ah, the joy of giving anonymously. Squeal as your boss is given a porn mag for christmas. Out your colleagues with a carefully chosen Gaydar Radio compilation album, but best of all, keep quiet about picking your own name out of the hat and buy yourself something really, really expensive.

What have you given to people you hate?

Secret Stealer
When I was at sixth form we did a Secret Stealer one year.

We each pulled names out of a hat and the object was to shoplift a gift for that person. I don't remember what I procured but you could tell which shops were known for their lax security by the plethora of trinkets from a select few outlets in town.

I have often tried to revive this as a Christmas tradition but no one seems to want to take up the challenge.

Student Laziness
Ah, Secret Santa. Nothing more fun than giving someone shit you don't want, or stuff you've dragged up in the discount bins of a charity shop. This year, our little uni flat drew names at random, and each of us allocated a flatmate to buy stuff for. Being a bum, I put it off to the very last minute, at which time I'd forgotten. So cue all of us gathering in a nice circle, exchanging presents, and comes my turn:

me: I forgot...
Her:What do you mean "I forgot"?
me: I forgot to buy you a presnt.. Will *looks in wallet* a fiver *rummages through pockets* some headphones and a pen i nicked from work do?
Her:... Probably.
I come back a few hours later, she's left the pen and the headphones on the floor. The cheek of some people!

Santa is a complete and utter barstard
Dear Santa,

I won your "If I was Joel Veitch" contest and my prize still hasn't arrived.

Now my kids must starve as I was going to sell it on ebay to buy them coal for Christmas.

B3ta Christmas.
Once, I picked B3ta for my secret Santa. I left a bag of flaming poo outside of B3ta Towers.

Funny thing was, though, the lazy bastards picked my name too, and didn't get me anything, not even a new QotW.

Feast your eyes on those puppies... two are aluminium, one is stainless... time to anodise them i think :o)

The one on the left is a present: not exactly s asecret santa one.. the other two are to keep in the extensive armoury of humpty-made tools at home.

teh large ribbed one.. not sure if it'll be useful... but the image of giving it to my granny makes me giggle...

How many people have 50 liters of sulphiric Acid in thier kitchens? I've just anodised the aluminium ones... :o)

Erm.. not given to someone I hate
actually a friend.. but a few years ago I pulled the old trick of putting a brick in a shoebox, with a box of matches and a penny chew (with pirate transfer!) sellotaped to it.

Upon receiving such a large, heavy, rattling present a week before Christmas sure enough I was bought a large, heavy and rattling present in return (a rather elaborate wok set I'll have you know!).

Oh how we both laughed on Christmas morning

New job, 1st Xmas party, Oh dear.........
Shortly after starting a new job where my older bother had pulled a few strings to get me on board, I was invited to a private party held by a member of his department. My bother was a senior manager and ranked above most that attended from our work, I was supposed to be on my best behaviour as it was by way of introducing me to his colleagues. The night went well and I got to meet everyone, played silly party games and impressed the females in attendance by lighting a real fire in the fireplace to warm the place up a bit. The host had received a massive Scalextric set, which was up and running in one of the adjoining ground floor rooms of the house. The party ran into the night and all were welcome to sleep over wherever they dropped. I recall thinking it would be a good idea to crash-out by the fire for warmth and was awoken in the early hours by a rather annoying beep? Every thirty seconds it went off and there was no way of getting back to sleep. So I investigated and discovered it was coming from the next room. The room was almost bear except for the Scalextric layout and the noise was louder. I stumbled around in the darkness and unplugged the transformer, but still the noise wouldn’t stop. I was also bursting for a pee at this point and with my electrical background I knew water could cause a short circuit…
…so there I was pissing all over this guy’s new present as his girlfriend flicked the light switch on and caught me in the act (and it was one of those unstoppable boozed-up police horse type urinations that I couldn’t stem!) …oh dear.
Due to the remoteness of the location, leaving the scene wasn’t an option so I had to suffer the indignity of my total embarrassment the following morning as everyone was informed of my night-time activity. You can imagine my brother’s reaction as we hurriedly made our exit, although my then sister-in-law thought it was very funny.
The story went round the office like wildfire afterwards and I still get reminded of it each Christmas, though the party invites have stopped?!! I found out later that it was someone’s mobile phone beeping away behind a curtain in the same room, just a missed call alert.

Not Secret Santa but vaguely related
My brother ordered a David Bowie Platinum Collection CD for his girlfriend.

Then he dumped her.

Without cancelling the order.

So now we have a Bowie CD that looks too good to give away. In fact its right next to me now.
Its not wrapped in pain-in-the-arse celophane either so I might be able to copy the songs and still give it away.

Not me but my girlfriend...
She was really looking forward to this year's secret santa at her office. She went out and found a tabletop bowling set for a fiver. (I really wanted it but she said it was under pain of death, so I let it be.)

Friday comes, everyone gets their secret santa present, and what does she get?

Oh no, not something fun, or even something worrying from the fellas at work.

She gets a Ream of A4 paper. 500 crisp white sheets of finest laser-quality cellulose. Which she had to carry home on the train from Liverpool St.

"I did need some paper though" was the only thing I could think of to say....

pointless santa
not to out of the ordinary or as bizarre as some here.

I used to be one of the Network people in a company that had named all their servers after Star Wars characters, about 30 of the buggers. Some starter after me, musta noticed these, and how we had to research for more character names for new servers, to 'conform with the naming policy' (yeah right fuckwit), and musta heard me commenting on the last film or something, coz 2 years running i got Star Wars calendars.

And someone caught wind i like a beverage, so i got a crate of Guinness, wouldn't have been to bad, bet theres loads here that would have liked it, but i cant stand the stuff.

I used to spend months screaming obscenities about a particular person before xmas, about unrelated issues, and discovered it came from him after xmas.

I always end up with the lynx promotional pack of the year
sniffs armpits - must smell or something. I wouldn't mind, but the current Mrs Grubbymitts is allergic to Lynx so I can't use it.
