Oh, the old days, when you got something as a gift, it actually was a gift - something that you own, and owe nobody anything in return. The very definition of a gift.
Welcome to the 21st century, when we automatically assume, that even a birthday gift is nothing but a limited license to view, under certain circumstances, that we can't share with anyone, owing the gift-giver all rights that he "reserved".
Well, I'm glad you enjoy your gift, even if it's really a non-gift. Still, it is so sad :(
Even if it's really not so ... just the fact, that we automatically have to assume that, just to be politically correct.Edited at 2013-10-01 05:05 pm (UTC)
