When someone says, “don’t get me a gift,” what do they really mean?   #WorkSmarterNotHarder

Around half of us think it means they don’t want anything, but won’t be upset if you still get them something. 

But 6% of us think it’s a total LIE . . . they DO want something, and they’ll be ANGRY if they don’t get a gift.

 

 

It’s been a crazy year and money’s tight.  But when someone says, “DON’T get me a gift,” what do they really mean?

Someone gave 25,000 Americans a few different options to choose from.  Here’s how they answered . . .

1.  Does it mean, “I really don’t want a gift, and I’ll be upset if you get me one“?  9% said yes, that’s what it means.

2.  Does it mean, “I don’t want a gift, but I WON’T be upset if you get me one“?  That was the #1 answer by far, with 46% of the vote.

3.  “I DO want a gift, but I won’t be angry if I don’t get one.”  18% of the vote.

4.  “I do want a gift, and I WILL be angry if I don’t get one.”  6% agreed.  So 1 in 17 people think “don’t get me a gift” means the exact OPPOSITE of that.  (The remaining 21% either didn’t answer or said it means something else.)
