I feel uncomfortable after my friend gave me an expensive PlayStation game for Christmas
DEAR DEIDRE: MY friend bought me a PlayStation game for Christmas, giving me strict instructions not to tell anyone. I’m a 17-year-old guy.
I bought my friends selection boxes, which is what they gave me – except one guy who hadn’t bought me anything.
He turned up at my house a couple of days after Christmas with a present.
I was shocked when it was this PlayStation game.
I appreciate the sentiment but don’t feel I can accept it.
I’m worried it’s something he was given as a present and has given it to me because he felt bad about not getting me anything. I’m sure he couldn’t afford it.
