The Invisible Gift

The Gift You Gave Is Gonna Last......Never???

Man! I am upset! This is very random. But Reddit has a thing called RedditGifts, where members exchange gifts with a theme with each other. This theme was Christmas in July. They call it Arbitrary Day. You give a gift to someone, and you're supposed to get a gift from someone else based on your interests. I don't know why, but I always get matched up with someone crummy. While I see other people always getting matched up with people like Bill Gates and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and people like that. I guess that's like winning the lottery, only certain people get matched with people like that. Well, this year I said I must have got matched with the Invisible Man, because I got an invisible gift. It's stuck in limbo somewhere. Either way, it's not here where it should be, and my gifter has disappeared.

RedditGifts gives you only so long to post your gift to their gift gallery. When they give you a final notice, they give you the option to report no gift. So, that is what I did. At first, I opted to not be rematched with anyone. They said I can always change it. I wanted to see first if anything could be worked out with the original gifter. So, RedditGifts informed him that I reported no gift had been received. He told me he contacted UPS and they wouldn't talk to him unless he was the recipient. So, I called UPS myself. My gifter asked me to let him know what they say. UPS said I can submit a pick up request, but that there will be a fee. I asked him to let me know if he wants to do that. Well, I gave him a week to respond and he never did. I tried contacting him again last Thursday, but as of today (Monday) I haven't heard from him at all.

I tried contacting RedditGifts on Friday. I never heard back from them either. Then I tried again on Saturday, and still to this day, haven't received any solution. I tried to resign again for a rematch, but nothing has come of it. So, I am stuck at what to do. I sent my giftee's gift several weeks ago, and I got my brownie point for it. But now I am owed a gift and I don't believe I am going to get one at all. My gifter has vanished off the face of the earth. I guess the fee part scared him off, because I still haven't received anything. Not even so much as a PM from my gifter. And I sure have never heard from the RedditGift staff. I was saying "Well, I guess I'd better just forget about getting anything this year!" I might as well! I have the feeling I ain't never gonna see that gift at all. I might as well pretend like I never even participated in this year's Arbitrary Day exchange.

Well, as kindof a joke, I posted about the gift anyways in the gallery. I think that's gonna make my gifter kinda angry though. Well, at least no one knows who he is. I don't even know. But I post something every time I participate in these exchanges, and I didn't want this one to be any different. But I was as detailed as I could get.

I also added these pics...

Just to illustrate. I don't know if I will ever participate in another exchange. This has happened 3 times already, and this is the final straw. I am pretty sure my post might get a lot of laughs, but I am pretty sure now I am not going to get a gift. Bummer! But I might as well just forget about it. But at least I know my recipient got his gift, and he seemed to enjoy it.

I didn't think of that Katrina. He sounded OK last time he messaged me.
