If someone were to give you a pair of socks that they had hand knitted themselves...be fucking grateful!
You have no idea how much planning, prepping, and hard work they put into it for you to just go on ahead and chuck them aside as if nothing. The fact that someone actually took time to make them for you shows how much you mean to them. And for anyone to just not give a flying fuck and just toss them aside??? Makes them a good for nothing ingrate!
