Streetwise

Asked at the Senior Holiday Luncheon

Have you ever "re-gifted" a present?

Yeah. I have done that. It would have to be new and it would have to be something I don't need. I would rewrap it and send it to a friend or relative, preferably in another state.

Absolutely. Anything that you can't use should be recycled. And if that's what "re-gifting" is, I'm all for it. I'm a consignment store owner. That's an interesting question.

I don't think that I would ever feel that way. If someone would give me a gift, I would cherish it.

If it's a gift I don't like, I'll give it to Goodwill, the Salvation Army or another charity. I'm afraid if I give it to a person, someone is going to know it's a "re-gift."

I think everybody has done that one time or another. Sometimes you receive a gift and you accept it out of goodwill. Someday you'll find a good use for it. Then you hang onto it for awhile and pass it to someone else. As the old saying goes: "What goes around comes around."
