Maybe the person even went to the trouble to make it especially for you. The person has good intentions, but you just are not happy with what they did or gave you. You try not to say “hey thanks, I don’t like it.” But when the person point blank asks you, “what did / do you think?” what should you do? I feel ungrateful saying “I didn’t like it. / It was nice but not me.” But I don’t feel right fibbing either and saying “Oh it was wonderful.” I was placed in this situation just this past weekend. I let the person I know I enjoyed it in all, but part of it was not to my liking. I feel as though I hurt the person, but fibbing wouldn’t have been right either. I love the person dearly. I hope the person knows that and that I was trying to do the right thing by being honest. Sadly, it’s not the only time I’ve been in this situation. And experience has said that honesty is best. Else wise you could end up with a huge bear collection or such that you didn’t really want. Is there a right way to handle this problem? What is it?
