First speaker: The worst Christmas present I was ever given was a Tamagotchi which was twenty-four pets, all in one. So when one died you could just delete it and move on to the next one. So not a very good present at all.
Second speaker: I was once given a travel hairdryer, which was bizarre because at the time I had really short hair and also very rarely travelled. So er ... it failed on both counts.
Third speaker: One Christmas I was given an alarm clock which was also a stationery pot, and as I opened it in front of the person that gave it to me it didn’t turn on. Errr ... which was really embarrassing. I threw it away, but now I know not to. I should recycle.
Fourth speaker: I was once given a personal attack alarm which you could attach to your keys. However, when I would start my car engine, the alarm would fall off and start going off. Then I wouldn’t be able to find it because it would fall underneath my car seat. So I would be in the car with the alarm going off. Not helpful!
