Wondering what to get that man or woman in your life who is a pest control professional? This list may be your answer!
It’s about that time of year again when shopping malls are filled with people buying gifts for loved ones hoping to spread some holiday cheer. Ah, the joy of giving, it makes us all feel good right? Unfortunately, a lot of that holiday cheer doesn’t quite hit the mark and you might be surprised what happens to the majority of the presents we give.
According to a poll by Western Union, up to 75% of people have lied about liking a gift that they did not like at all. Of those people only 1 in 5 will ever say anything so as not to hurt your feelings. What do they do with said gifts?
18% gets donated to charity. 15% is re-gifted, 11% returned to the store, another 11% tossed in the trash and 6% of the recipients try to resell their gifts. I guess the rest just gets put out in the garage or in a corner somewhere and is forgotten. Tsk Tsk, if we only knew just what that pest pro truly wanted, then we could have still have that great heart filled joy of giving while the receiver would be pleasantly surprised with something they really wanted and appreciate.
