My dad does this whole passive-aggressive thing on Xmas morning and birthdays too (is it mainly MEN?). I shop very, very carefully for gifts for dad and he leaves them opened and rejected under the tree or next to the b-day cake. I used to ask him if anything was wrong with his gifts and he'd usually just do a big SIGH and say he just really didn't want them.
Some twisted logic from childhood lingering into the adult years? Don't know but it sure takes the JOY out of GIVING. I sooooo understand!
