My mother made an out-of-town family member a hat and scarf for Christmas last year. She was so proud of herself -- she'd just progressed beyond shawls, and these did not look like the work of a beginner.
This year, said family member brought my mother a bag of giveaway stuff he'd found in the closet he uses whenever he visits (and that no one else uses), for her to take to charity.
In the bag? The hat and scarf. He'd never even taken them away.
Well, someone's never getting time spent on him again, as he's shown how little it means to him.
